Military Team Building and Business Games

Our indoor and outdoor military themed approaches "Battlespace", "Strike Force" and "The Executive Warfare Centre" offer fun, engaging and meaningful journeys into the military genre.  Business can learn a great deal from the military about leadership, teamwork and decision-making in complex, changing and competitive environments.

Battlespace

 

After a surprise and high-energy commando recruiting raid your team are transformed into an elite military unit (optional uniforms and personalised dog tags are often a nice touch). Battlespace is a sophisticated indoor business game and simulation that requires effective leadership, teamwork and communication to win.  

 

Team members will assume various functional roles which are all crucial for the planning and execution of a complex military operation unfolding in real time. Limited time and resources will become factors as will some unexpected changes and of course the aggressive actions of their competitors. 

 

Each sub-unit will need to communicate, look beyond just their own tasking to see the bigger picture.  People need to share information and avoid succumbing to task overload if they wish to be both victorious and profitable during their campaign.    

 

You will gain valuable tailored insights into military decision-making, leadership, execution and cross-functional techniques.  These can be carefully matched to your business aims and objectives.

 

Group Size: 5 and up (suitable for large groups)

Duration: 2 - 3 hours (full day versions also available)

Venue: Indoors.  Can make use of your existing meeting space.

Key Themes: Teamwork, leadership, communication, seeing the bigger picture, decision-making, change, complexity, task / information overload, cognitive bias, perseverance, cross-functional working, team roles.

strike force

 

After a surprise and high-energy commando recruiting raid your team are recruited into your own Strike Force, issued uniforms and personalised dog tags (optional) and briefed for specially tailored missions.

 

Each team will progressively obtain the skills and equipment from a series of challenges conducted initially as seperate teams, and then slowly come to the realisation that the final mission will require a truly "united force" of the total team.  

All sub teams ultimately unite for a spectacular final assualt on enemy HQ that will require excellent planning, cross-functional communication and execution to succeed.

 

Strike Force is a great team building challenge that also has the ability to dovetail into insights from genuine military planning, briefing and execution tools and approaches.

 

Group Size: 5 and up (suitable for large groups)

Venue: Usally Outdoors unless large undercover areas are also available.
