Save the Titanic is not about building a small cardboard boat that floats in a pool! This challenge requires teams to construct a giant raft that is capable of carrying 3-4 team members out to a distant iceberg on a lake or in the ocean.
Add in the element of two project teams working together in a simulated virtual environment. Each project team is responsible for building a different part of the Titanic – the bow or stern. Final integration is the final test as virtual project teams merge the two structures and create the Titanic ship. Strong collaboration is a must to integrate the bow and stern successfully and create a seaworthy Titanic!
Teams gather on the shore ready to move into action. Corporate Teams introduces the TEAM Balance Model for High Performing Teams as a framework for effective and efficient problem solving.
Titanic in Action
Virtual project teams are paired together each tasked with building either the bow or the stern. Working independently, project teams have limited communications throughout the process.
Armed with valuable construction materials, teams carefully craft a design for the bow and stern. The integration phase brings the parts together for final assembly. Teams must manage their time wisely to ensure time for testing and refinement.
Ready to Race!
Titanic ships must remain fully functional and float worthy. A relay race around the floating iceberg determines the winners!
Teams finish with an interactive dialogue that pulls together key insights and takeaways that can be put into action upon return to the workplace.
