Why this event?
Bridging the Divide is a fun, engaging game built around a powerful metaphor. This is great for reinforcing the idea that all departments within your organization are striving to meet their own goals, but each also plays a vital role in the bigger picture.
Each team designs, decorates and brands their own bridge. In the end, the bridge needs to be big enough, strong enough and stable enough to allow a large remote-controlled vehicle to safely cross it. Awards are presented in categories like most creative engineering design, best branding and most efficient use of resources.
This event presents a challenging exercise where each team is both a supplier and a customer. The end goal is fully collaborative. Success requires ongoing customer relationship management, steady project management, plus a clear understanding of the consequences of good or poor communication. As always, a healthy dose of creative inspiration helps.
