Some studies have show that participants involved in active learning (a simulation, a training game, etc…) retain 90% of the information. Although this percentage may vary by study, one thing is for sure. Active learners show better attitudes and improvements in thinking and writing.
That’s what makes Product Pipeline such a successful company team building program. The interactive business simulation game encourages participants to work together within their small teams, as well as within the larger “company.”
Company Team Building That Works
It’s a truly collaborative effort! You select project managers to oversee the project and uncover customer needs. Your pipeline also has a minimum marble “revenue” requirement to meet and a budget that can be spent at the “store” for select purchases of materials. Your company’s marketing department must present a wonderfully creative presentation for the pipeline product, before the ﬁnal moment of truth.
Quality control exists, too, as teams take opportunities to perform more than one round of marble delivery to examine best practices and process improvement.
A diversity of roles means plenty of opportunities to include everyone in your group. Time is limited – will your team come in under budget, communicate effectively and meet your goals?
