Competition to Collaboration™
Competition to Collaboration™ is a series of excellent professional development-based team building activities that will teach your group the benefits of sharing best practices.
In Competition to Collaboration, subgroups working in separate areas will complete challenging teambuilding activities, focusing on continuous improvement, effective problem solving strategies and high performance benchmarking.
Team One engages in a series of team collaboration activities including Kaizen and Speed Order. With several quick rounds sandwiched between strategy meetings, the goal here is for the team to put together the fastest possible time.
While this is occurring, Team Two is working on a version of the frenetic On Target, attempting to score as many points as possible in multiple 90-second rounds. In both of these teambuilding activities, special attention is needed to avoid quality breeches, which result in penalties.
Teams are then thrown a curve ball! They’re now charged with sharing information with the other team about the task they just completed. They must openly divulge information and strategies, which will position the other team to outperform their benchmark. With this new twist, success is now measured by their ability to help the other team to outperform their previous best effort!
This synergistic approach highlights the positive results of sharing best practices and has a powerful message of team collaboration and celebrating the success of our colleagues.
To ensure a great experience, aspects of these team building activities may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.
"We held an off-site global team meeting with the goal of improving our processes and to provide optimal solutions to our stakeholders. I was tasked with providing some type of team building activity for our group. After much research, I found Best Corporate Events! I spoke at length with them to develop what turned out to be an amazingly successful event. I have already received numerous requests for contact information about the company."Ellen - Astellas Pharma Global Development
