“Analysts do not feel integrated enough into the company”
Objectives and project procedure
Outdoor training involving 150 people. Participants were divided into teams and were asked to build a fortress that had to be as follows: a wooden building of 4 square meters equipped with watch-towers and team logo
The work was organized as follows: a part of the team was commissioned to construct the main building, meanwhile the rest of them were involved in winning the necessary equipment by playing a team game. All participants worked together in a spirit of cooperation and with a cross-functional integration. Each participant has intentionally brought into play her/his own skills in order to effectively manage the work processes. An accurate de-briefing let them understand how to transport this metaphorical experience into their professional reality as a team.
“A very high level of challenge in terms of cognitive, emotional, relational and organizational skills”.
All activities were designed in such a way as to be used as metaphors of real work situations, during which everybody had to deal with limited resources, stressful deadlines, several personalities, different kinds of motivations.
As a matter of fact, achieving our objectives in the different projects depends on three main factors: an effective management of resources, the different types of leadership styles within the context and the ability to work as an integrated team.
