Team Collaboration Activities | Competition to Collaboration™On August 9, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
In “Competition to Collaboration”
two teams work toward the successful completion of a series of team collaboration activities combining effective problem solving strategies
with team collaboration, and sharing best practices. Once your group is formed into teams,
competition begins with each team working toward the successful completion of challenging problem-solving activities in separate areas. Team one will work on a series of activities, the focus of which is continuous improvement with several quick rounds sandwiched between strategy meetings. The goal here is to put together the fastest possible times. Team two will be working on another fast-paced challenge. The object of which is to score as many points as possible in multiple 90 second rounds while adhering to a specific and challenging set of rules. In both of these activities special attention is needed
to avoid quality breaches which result in penalties. The goal in this initial phase is to set a benchmark for the other team. One that you are certain cannot be beaten. After teams set their benchmark they’re thrown a curveball.
They are now charged with sharing detailed and valuable information with the other
team about the event they just completed. Each team then rotates to the other
activity site with a new unexpected goal. You must position the other team to
outperform your established benchmark to achieve joint team success. This synergistic approach highlights the positive results of sharing best practices and has a powerful message of team collaboration and positioning others for performance improvement and success.
