  • quality.

The team tasks are against the clock. As well as testing participants' ability to work as a team, it is a fun way to develop creativity, time management, communication skills.

How it works
The objective is to earn as much money as they can in the time allowed. Teams compete against each other or their performance against previous teams.

There are more tasks available than can be achieve in the allotted time and the profit from each task varies; so do they go for a high value task which takes longer, or low value tasks which are more quickly and easily achieved?

For example; the team in this picture earned £1,250 by finding these items. Sorry, no clues as to what they are – it will spoil your creativity!

Many teams simply complete tasks randomly. However, to be successful they need a business plan that recognises and exploits the skills of team members. In addition, time scales need to be agreed or they will get carried away with the tasks and forget important deadlines!

The team tasks that can be completed indoors or outside, making it an ideal activity for corporate team building events and business seminars and conferences.

It is also a flexible learning resource that allows you to examine key team competencies and behaviours. Choose from the many activities for team meetings, assessment centres and team development.
