All Adrift Team Building Exercise

Whilst on a sailing holiday, an accident causes the boat to set on fire, with just enough time to grab a few items at hand – the team have to decide which items are top priority. Working together, the team have to use their decision making skills to prioritize the ten items listed.

This is an exercise in consensus decision-making. It has two objectives:

  • To investigate whether teams do better than individuals in making decisions.
  • To give a real experience to hang the teamwork theory on. Participants can relate the key points to what actually happened in their group.

Suggested Learning Outcomes

  • Communication
  • Decision making
  • Problem Solving
  • Time management
