This is a hands-on 'real' team building activity requiring real teamwork plus inter-team collaboration, negotiation and competition, which will have everyone in your team totally absorbed.
If you want an activity to build your team, an event that has potential for leadership development, and an event which is all inclusive, hands-on and not naff, then read on...
Your team doesn’t need to be engineers or even overly practical – what they will need is to be is effective at planning, communicating, organising and leading.
The NZ Pipeline activity will be totally tailored to your business/team after consultation with you. This includes branding, how the event is briefed and how it is debriefed.
Examples of parallels or analogies back to your workplace could include:
- The competing but connected teams can be likened to departments, branches or work teams
- The ‘client’ requesting the pipeline to be built can be likened to external or internal customers
- The groups within the activity can be likened to a company’s supply chain – from sales through to delivery etc.
Time: 2 - 2.5 hours (or interspersed in stages during a conference even) Group Size: up to 200 people
This event can be run indoors or outdoors.
“In terms of a true ‘team building’ exercise that isn’t ‘naff’ or overly contrived, I am yet to come across much better than the Pipeline activity. Whilst tapping into most key elements of teamwork, it also has many direct analogies back to a workplace – especially where there are departmental or regional ‘silos’ all working towards a common goal. Combine this with competition and a good dose of fun and it makes for an excellent and cost effective team building activity.” Chris Gulley, MD Elevate (20 years team building facilitation).
