Many Hands Make Light Work

Midrand, Gauteng South Africa (PressExposure) May 10, 2011 -- This truly amazing program mirrors all aspects of your business from product knowledge to company values and mission and even conference theme and sales messages.

Team Synergy

For a relatively low per head cost this truly amazing program that can be held absolutely anywhere, day or night, indoors or outdoors and can be customized to mirror all aspects of your business from product knowledge to company values and mission and even conference theme and sales messages.

The basic premise is simple: So much to do - so little time!

However many hands make light work! The teams have a vast array of tasks to complete. Most of the task work is to be done at team tables (no seating). The instruction sheets indicate where you need to go if the task is to be accomplished someplace else. How you employ your team members on various tasks is up to you. Some tasks require minimum number of players to be involved. Take some time to read the Team Synergy Guidebook. Each team has 3 copies. Each team begins with 5000 Dream Team Bucks and has to accumulate as many as possible within the time allotted.

Bucks are earned by accomplishing as many tasks as possible within the allotted time. Each task has its own instruction sheet in the Team Synergy Guidebook.

All the task instructions are listed in your Team Synergy Guidebook. The Dream Team Facilitators are available to answer questions and verify scoring. Their rulings are final and they don't take bribes! It is generally impossible to complete all the tasks - you will have to prioritise.

Team Synergy encourages cooperative competition and fair play. Team can pool resources and knowledge in pursuit of their unique goals (often the best performing teams are those that do just this). No cheating, interference, or unruly behaviour will be allowed. It is assumed that everyone will play fair, play hard, and work towards the goal of winning Team Synergy.

As an optional extra our roving cameraman can capture the energy, industry and excitement and produce an upbeat video that can be used to close the event, or conference and send everyone away with the message that "Team Synergy is the only way to go" uppermost in their minds. We have some clients that play their video back at the workplace when team spirit starts to flag as a reminder of how great it is to be part of a team that is performing and enjoying it!

Need 4 Speed

Need 4 Speed is a time and motion study in miniature, a frenetic table based intervention that actively encourages participants to review and improve performance. Faced with a jumble of model components teams must switch into overdrive to assemble a range of 'snap together' concept cars in record time.

Optimising flow is critical to success as teams are challenged to form ultra efficient assembly lines and shave seconds off successive build times. The pressure is further intensified with the realisation that each car has it own specific style and bolt on extras.

Quality is everything; the final output from sedan to sports utility vehicle must meet exacting customer expectations. Speed is rewarded but small mistakes can see teams slipping down the leader board

As the learning progresses and each stage is reviewed, the focus moves from individual team times to sharing best practice between teams to achieve the best possible aggregate production time. Final group times are measured against previous participants 'best ever' results..

Never has there been a more important time to explore process improvement, Need 4 Speed is a great platform to ignite discussion within a context of practical fun. The uber cool design and tactile nature of the car models are guaranteed to bring out the inner child in all who take part.

About Dream Team Catalyst

Dream Team Catalyst team building training programmes come with attitude and purpose. We do not spoon feed participants; we allow them to create real working scenarios where success or failure will depend on how well people perform as a team. More often than not there is a need to network with other teams towards a common goal, but on other occasions the skills shown in a competitive activity by the most successful teams become a model for other teams to emulate, sharing best practise and increasing productivity.
