FAQs – Know more about team building activity
How does the activity work?
Each team designs one section of the bridge and then another team executes this. May sound simple but apart from angles and heights of corresponding sections, you also have all the other aspects to consider. Will it be a cantilever or should it be a suspension bridge? Lots of dynamics as you explore both sides of the table – customer and vendor, in this bridge-building activity.
My group has no Engineering background
Awesome. They don’t need any background for this bridge-building activity other than having been in a situation where they interact with others. This bridge-building activity is not about building a bridge as much as it is about exploring the dynamics of customer-vendor relations. All the more fun if they don’t have any engineering background.
Am not sure if we have that much time available.
Aww. Unfortunately, this activity requires the time. We can shorten it a bit but seriously, this fun learning activity is best done by utilising all the time and exploring all the dynamics.
For whom is this?
Anyone who is in a customer-facing role. Any team that has interactions with other teams. Any distributed teams. This bridge-building activity is all about building the right bonds between these groups.
