They showed themselves well both in team tasks and individual contests.  For example, the cell leaders were offered to make MiG-29 plane model from paperboard, having just sticky tape, scissors, modelling clay and glue. Also they had to organize their working places in accordance with the lean production requirements. Finally the team won whose fighter had covered the distance of 7 meters. The esthetic performance of the model was also taken into account.       

The mentors’ contest was also very creative.  For them the business play “Lego-fight” in pairs (one of the participants was a trainer, the second – a trainee) wat organized by the experts. The “trainer” should explain his protégé how to build a sailing ship from Lego without instruction. The one who created the model without any faults within the minimum time became the winner.  During the theoretic task the young people had to tell about benefits of the company they were employed in: why their job is in demand and up market?
