"This was a great experience! Team Buldings allowed us to uncover our strenths and weaknesses and learn how to manage those weaknesses while accentuating our strengths. I believe our team will be able to apply our learning immediately back in the workplace."

The Team Buildings™ simulation is a challenging and fun activity designed for two to four teams. Each team has five departments working in concert to build structures. Teams must integrate customers' specifications and use predetermined geometric shapes and colors to construct the buildings..
The Company's Design Book includes 7 different basic structures and 10 different specifications. The customer may request slight modifications or "custom features," but the Sales Department must agree to them.
There is not enough information on each basic structure to complete the building; thus, additional information must be requested from the customer, who also scores the quality of the finished
Team Buildings is a Level 2 Simulation
How does it work?
*The entire exercise takes between 3 and 3.5 hours to complete, depending on the scope of the activity (to be determined by the facilitator).
*After a general briefing to all participants, each department is given cards that explain the roles in overall project and assessment criteria for success. Each team has five departments.
*The facilitator assigns the customer role. There is one customer per team.
*The exercise is divided into three phases with team debriefs following the two building phases, I and II.
*Teams are competing against each other. The more buildings they produce to the correct specifications the higher thier score. Quality is important, it is possible to score higher with fewer buildings with high quality than 6 shoddy ones.
*At the completion of the exercise, there is a debrief session for all participants
