A great collaborative team building challenge for large groups.
This Multi Team Activity is based on everyone building a railway around an Island. Due to the Island being at sea level, the railway must be at least 10 cm off the ground. Each team is allocated a section to build with various roles to fulfil.
With every section comes individual challenges as the railway needs to navigate “natural obstacles” (e.g. rivers, highways, mountains etc.). In addition stations and sidings maybe required with the appropriate signage. With tight budgets, the buyers need to negotiate and marketers to be creative and persuasive.
The Railway must be constructed to a standard that will allow an Infra-Red controlled passenger and /or freight train to drive the complete circuit. Although the group is in teams, this is a collaborative exercise designed to encourage delegates to look at the bigger picture and avoid “silo” thinking.
