The activity has two stages. First, teams receive a Team Brief and a set of problems on 16 Task Sheets. The problems are a mix of conundrums and puzzles. Each problem has a point score if correct solution, but maximum points are only available for getting it right first time. Second and third attempts score progressively fewer points. So attention to detail and checking are both crucial.
As soon as teams have a solution to a problem they use their unique PIN number to access the computer program and enter their answer. The program checks their answer (with sound effects!). Key to the task: teams must organise themselves in such a way as to maximize their point score.
When a team offers a correct answer the computer awards the points and also shows them a letter of the alphabet. The letters (16 in all) can be arranged on their Scoresheet to spell out an instruction. This leads to the second stage of the activity which involves 'a construction'.
The pace is fast and furious. It’s a race against time - and the other competing teams! A great way to test and develop teamwork skills!
An alternative way to use TeamBuild! enables you to address both leadership and teamwork skills. For each team, select a team leader (or ask teams to elect their leader). Leaders are then issued with a Leader’s Brief so it is the leader only who reads up on the task. Meanwhile the team receives a brief asking them to consider what key attributes they expect to see in their leader. The leaders then return to brief their teams and lead them in the competition.
Have used 'TeamBuild!' with many different groups - always hits the mark. Excellent for identifying components of effective teams.

'TeamBuild!' was lots of fun and we were able to assess skills and behaviour very well.
