A seemingly overwhelming activity where participants are bombarded with critical information and have to make sense of it very quickly to find a solution. This activity mimics the pressures that can be experienced every day in the work environment and is a perfect platform to analyse and reflect on team performance and behaviour strategies.
At the simplest level a team is: “two, or more, people working together to achieve a common goal or purpose.“
Whether at the small group, departmental, subsidiary or group level, the effectiveness of the team (whatever its life span) is determined by the balance of a few key factors.
Take our online survey and individuals will receive their own reports with a comparison to the team as a whole. Individual results are never shared with management or the rest of the team.
Presented with a situation and limited resources teams must agree what their plan of action will be to survive.

Virtual Team Building from BlueSky Experiences
The virtual version of Supply Chain acts as a business mirror revealing and exploring the complexities of working within organisations, the need to balance personal, functional goals and targets to achieve success.
Supply Chain introduces conflict between individual and team goals, demonstrating the vital importance of communication and collaboration in team performance. Supply Chain raises significant questions about the network of relationships within the team and the team’s contact with other key groups both inside and outside of the organisation.
The effects of an individual’s actions can have a considerable impact on others in the team. Therefore good project co-ordination is required to ensure a successful outcome.
The review of the team activity emphasises the need to understand what others need in order to be effective and to be open about available resources, individual and group needs.
Supply Chain works most effectively when it mirrors the real organisational network in which the participants work. The team can explore patterns of communication and contact, suggesting changes to their own ‘networking’ and identifying the best ways of using the communication links that they already have in place and developing new ones.
The active and participative nature of these experiments, with people occupying their real or representative places in the networks, makes the transfer of learning back to the workplace particularly easy. This very effective type of learning is much more dynamic process than paper based analysis could produce.
