This task is about set of obstacles in ground in a specified area in that you and your team members should cross each obstacles defined by set of rules.  Also while crossing those obstacles we should carry a load.  To cross those obstacles, some helping materials are given by the G.T.O.  i.e. Balli (wooden log), Plank, and rope to tie these.

 The time given for this is usually 40, 60 minutes depending on the G.T.O. and also based on the difficulty of the task.  If one task is finished the group have to move to the next P.G.T.  So the group has to finish the tasks at a stretch. Also the difficulty of the tasks increases from one task to another.  
 No leader is nominated and the whole group is allowed to participate in this.  The person who is having analyzing capability, who can able to apply his basic physics (such as fulcrum, cantilever) in real life, could feel easy to finish these tasks. Also he will be noted as the leader.

Example Scenario about P.G.T.:-
The obstacles are painted in three colors namely

  • White
  • Black
  • Red

Each one describes one rule.                            

White: - Both the candidate and the helping materials can touch the obstacle at this region.
Black: - Only the candidate can touch the obstacle in this region and not the helping materials.
Red   : - Both the candidate and helping material should not touch the obstacles.

Out of bound area:-
         The areas in the P.G.T which should not be touched are called as out of bound areas.  These areas include the mud surfaces inside the task area and some color codes as described above. In Progressive Group Task, there will be a starting line and a finishing line. 

Usage of helping materials and its usage:-   
          The helping materials given are wooden plank(6 feet length), balli (wooden log), and rope.  Along with this they will give a load to carry from one end to another end.  With these helping materials we implement several techniques such as cantilever, fulcrum etc to cross over the obstacles along with the group.  See this and get the idea about fulcrum, cantilever and P.G.T structures.    

Things to follow at P.G.T:-

  1. Never look at the G.T.O while doing the tasks.
  2. Be yourself as I stated earlier in the G.D itself.
  3. Give a good idea to the group if you don’t know any idea just help the idea givers truthfully.
  4. Never violate the rules it is the basic of G.T.O tasks, and in case if you violate the rule, just repeat the task. 
  5. Be an active participant in the team by giving your full cooperation. 
  6. Be positive in your views i.e. take consideration about other members ideas if it is finer than yours.
