Rolling dice goes back to ancient times. Unlike the majority of customs which started in one location and then spread to others, it appeared independently all over the world. This symbolic fact showing universality and simplicity of the dice itself made me think of the dice as a model for visualisation of the analysis of any project both by a team as well as by one person. I hope that it will be helpful in real life even if it is created in virtual reality. My final hope is to create a space for listening, sharing, respect and creativity.

If you wish to be inspired for challenging an issue or project, look for solutions please follow the dice's tutorials and/or go to the full version in order to play freely with a 3D model here…

WHY DICE

Think of a dice as a symbolic model for something that needs to be worked out. Its shape represents a mathematical wholeness. It is basic, reliable, stable, solid and… simple. Each side shows a different number of dots. Each side represents a different result or, perhaps, a different perspective that could apply. However, when we roll the dice we only ever consider the side that lands face up. We forget about the other sides and the other perspectives that could be.

With this in mind, welcome to the Dice Dilemma concept. In this model, a dice represents a whole picture. Now think about teams. Each team has someone closest to the dice with the rest of its members lined up in single file behind him/her and influenced by their side.

Now let the dice roll! Let’s take the dice challenge!

Please let it inspire you to visualize any issue, change directions, distances and perspectives and find other circumstances to help you address the case. Try to adapt the model to real life. It could be both a team perspective as well as your own personal view when observing any project by yourself.

Feel free to play with the dice, change the directions, distances and perspectives, find other situations that may help to address the case. I would be truly appreciative for any of your comments, observations. Please feel free to share :waldek@p2p.com.pl

CHAPTER 1

Zoom In Zoom Out

Zoom in and zoom out on the dice. Compare how you see your side of the dice (zoom in) to how others see it (zoom out). Now define and prepare to share your side (what the scope is, what the limits are, what it is, what it is not).

CHAPTER 2

Looking Around the Dice

You can take an individual perspective and assume your side alone is right or... You can assume that others see things differently and common ground can only be found by exploring these differences. Let’s look around the dice thorough the perspective of everyone involved.

CHAPTER 3

Looking Around the Dice at Teams

Think about cooperation between different teams working on the same project , coordinating and influencing each other in every direction. Let’s look around the dice at the teams.

CHAPTER 5

Putting it all Together

Leave a space for personal development and own ideas on how to work for the team.  Assume that everybody needs to grow and work toward its own goals. Work together and create results that each team member cares about. Have courage to admit that you do not know, ask for help. It’s all about synergy and co-creating together. It’s this that makes learning fun.



Check if synergy works. Remember about respect and listening to others. Be smart.
