Jump Start Your Ideation

Each podcast is a presentation of a single problem that will help you stretch your imagination and critical thinking skills before you start problem solving. The problems are formulated to not have a single “correct” answer but to give you the opportunity to have an open discourse on different approaches to a solution.

Launch Pad Problems #37 - Piece of Cake


You need to cut a cake into equal pieces, but it's not that easy. You have three constraints:

  1. must make at least 2 cuts
  2. no 2 cuts can be parrallel or perpindicular to any other cut
  3. everyone in the group gets their own cake but the group must deliver one proper set of pieces from a single cake

I also give you a few added challenges and in the second half of the show I talk about why this is a great problem for the facilitator.

Here are ways to give feedback in the second half of the show:

  1. slack - http://lpp.soapboxrocket.com/slacksignup
  2. email
  3. twitter - @soapboxrocket
