Objectives

KP Snacks was seeking an interactive team building challenge to encourage its development team to collaborate, connect and communicate in order to ‘achieve together.’ The 30 participants would be taking part in two separate activities, one during the day and one in the evening each centred around the company’s four key values.


Solution

Wildgoose provided two unique and engaging team challenges, the Tribal Instincts challenge, during the day and the Spy School themed quiz during dinner in the evening.

To kickstart the day, teams were split into groups of three and four and took to the streets of Manchester to complete the Tribal Instincts challenge. Teams worked collaboratively through content including trivia, photo and video challenges and utilising the apps inter-team messaging and feedback steps.The teams were able to monitor each other throughout the event using interactive game screens. This helped to facilitate collaboration and enabled the participants to find other teams and ask for help in solving particular challenges.

An example challenge from the day included: ‘War Cry’ – each team had to locate another tribe and record themselves creating a Zulu ‘war cry’ to scare aware the Rogue Tribe and ‘Defying Gravity’ – to complete this task successfully, the teams had to find an ‘opposing’ tribe – The Moonrunners – and take a group photo of both teams ‘defying gravity’. This challenge encouraged teams to work together and communicate.

As part of the wrap up, the teams took part in a ‘group reflection’ activity, complementing KP Snacks’ existing learning culture of ‘do, reflect, learn.’ Teams were given back their iPads, and completed feedback steps that focussed on how well they worked with other teams; how well they collaborated with those outside of their teams, and what they will do differently in the future. This was an integral part of the day and provided tangible feedback for the client.

In the evening, teams participated in the Spy School themed quiz at Manchester’s Principal Hotel. In contrast to the collaborative focus of the morning activity, teams were required to compete whilst solving clues, answering questions and completing tasks to earn points and ultimately reach the top of the scoreboard. With a murder mystery element and a competitive edge to the game, it was the perfect ice breaker.


Verdict

Vicky Watson from KP Snacks said: "Thank you so much for organising a fantastic day in Manchester to help our team develop our collaboration skills! The tasks were perfectly tailored to fit our brief & the staff were brilliant from the first conversations to facilitating the event on the day. We have had so much positive feedback, everyone wished that it could have gone on for longer! We would definitely recommend Wildgoose to anyone."
