Fab Lab provided the solution to Morgan James Consulting Puzzles
When Lily Newman, Managing Director of Morgan James Consulting, was looking for help to create some bespoke business simulations for her clients she went to Trafford Fab Lab for help. Delighted with the final result, she keeps coming back for more.
Says Lily: “We went down to the Fab Lab with our Blue Peter style mock up with sticky backed plastic.
“The team there were fantastic. They asked some great questions like what materials we wanted and two weeks later we ordered 12 sets, and then we ordered 12 more and we’re about to order more. They are laser cut from Perspex and perfect for what we need. We use business simulations to get a real feel for delivering real life skills. I suppose you could call them bespoke jigsaw puzzles.
“We ask our teams – who can be from 16 to 60 – from big clients, high growth SMES to University students – to put the puzzle together but there is no picture on the box. They have to complete it in the fastest time and then we ask them to do it again and then identify how to they can do it faster in three or four rounds.
“We’re looking for communication skills, leadership skills and team skills.
Finding Fab Lab was just like heaven for us. They really solved a small business problem for us. They have opened up opportunities for us to be more creative.
“They are superb! I would recommend them to anyone who needs to bring more innovation in to their business.”
