TeamBuild! is a two-stage, competitive activity. Teams first receive a Team Brief, a set of 16 Tasks and a Scoresheet. The tasks are a mix of conundrums and puzzles, requiring different skills. Some are easy some less so. Each team is given a unique PIN to access the (one) computer program and enter their solutions. If a correct solution is entered into the program, the team banks a full score for the task - BUT it has to be right first time. Second and third attempts score progressively fewer points. So attention to detail and double-checking are crucial!
Key to the activity is the need for teams to organise themselves in such a way as to maximize their point score. Who is best suited to do this task and who will double-check it? How can time be maximised? Coordination is key. As well, for each correct answer, the program reveals a letter of the alphabet (16 in all) which can be arranged to spell out a simple instruction. This leads to the second stage of the activity, a construction task, and the need for a totally different skills-set. Using newspapers, sticky tape and scissors, teams must build the tallest, free-standing giraffe possible. All attempts to cheat (strapping to table legs, leaning on pillars etc) is strictly forbidden - but that won't stop teams from trying! Fun activity, serious learning.
With a slight variation in the running, TeamBuild! you can be used to address both leadership and teamwork skills. all in the Trainer's Notes.
The computer program is accessed via the Northgate trainerhub.
