Big Picture Team Building Activity

This team building activity illustrates the importance of looking at the ‘big picture’, particularly when looking at an organisation and how its people operate and communicate internally.

Each team is responsible for painting one or several individual canvases. Each canvas is small segment, which will make up the final artwork.

Team will need to consult and cooperate with the teams who have canvases joining theirs, to ensure the lines and colour match up.


Programme Outline

  • Each team will be given their own sets of materials, paints, brushes and a diagram outlining their individual canvas. They will then mix paints to create the right colours and paint their canvas.
  • As they continue to work on their painting, they will then realise that in order to form the bigger picture, they need to cooperate with other teams rather than compete.
  • Teams will communicate and cooperate with other teams who have canvases joining theirs, to ensure the lines and colour match up.

Key Takeaways

  • Teamwork & collaboration
  • Communication
  • Eye for detail
  • Time management

Calling The Shots

Calling the Shots is a customised business game where teams learn to pursue business opportunities together, and to allocate resources carefully in order to achieve targets. A highly intense game where teams will need to exhibit their negotiation skills in order to win the game.

This programme is the perfect recipe for management teams to get to know each other in a deeper way, while exploring how they can better communicate and listen to one another.

The Chain Reaction

Teams must create a series of simple machines, which when joined together with those from other teams, and form a chain reaction.

After construction and testing is completed, teams will then trigger the reaction where it will flow from start to finish without a hiccup!

Fun City

Teams have to construct a giant model city that relies on creativity but also strong planning and discipline within the design and build teams.

This is also a great opportunity for everyone in a team to collaborate, demonstrating that teams within teams pull together towards one common goal.
