Bridging the Divide
Each team builds the bridge to their customer expectations while overcoming limited resources, communication barriers and strict timelines. The bridge needs to be big enough, strong enough and stable enough to allow a large remote controlled vehicle to safely cross it.
Bridges can be creatively designed, decorated and branded by each team, with awards being given for the most creative engineering design, best branding, most efficient use of resources etc.
The final construction component of the event sees each teams’ bridge being installed as part of the huge, extended company bridge – thus each team is not only focusing on their task but also playing their vital role in the success of a large company project.
The exciting grand finale involves driving a remote controlled vehicle over the total length of the extended bridge.
A fun, engaging, hands on event with very powerful metaphors – where all departments of an organization strive towards their own goals, but also play a vital role in the bigger picture of the organization goals. The efforts of ALL teams are literally “linked” together in a powerful demonstration of the Power of One.
Corporate Social Responsibility Ideas
Bridging the Divide can be tailored so that each bridge portion is presented by the team as the rationale for the side messages concerning sustainable development.
The end goal requires teams to share resources, minimize unnecessary journeys, control budgets and use recycled materials wherever possible. It’s a route to creating awareness of the impact of any project on the environment and the expectations of diverse stakeholders.
