I am a Management trainer and have to put together a quality audit training (remote) and am looking for some short activities to include. this is a 4 hour training slot and i have the presentation ready. Need some help in mini activities (2 or 3) to keep the group active and interested.

A scenario (even if as just a thought experiment) is to "Count the number of animals in a box of animal crackers"

This evolves into a discussion of how do we define this count? There are no living animals in the box. What do we mean by the number of "animals". Then inevitably some crackers are broken. If I find all the pieces for a certain animal, is that one animal or however many pieces I have? What if I have a lone head of a lion? How do I count that?

It makes a simple, but effective realization of writing an audit standard requires a lot of "operational definitions" into what is "good" or "bad".

A similar exercise it to test the claim of a microwave popcorn brand - such as leaves less unpopped kernels than another. This then gets into - what is the definition of an unpopped kernel, and you can even get into acceptance sampling if that is part of what you want to train on.

'What's wrong with this picture?' is always fun. Show pictures of obvious and not-so-obvious problems. It can be housekeeping, actions of individuals, maintenance, defects, charts, etc.
