An analogy can be drawn to the workplace where everyone has a rewarding role to play in keeping the team in the race; whether they want to build, design, decorate or drive the chariot, each team member has a valuable contribution to make. An impossible task will quickly become very possible (and lots of fun) as the power of the team and a well coordinated efforts takes over to make the project a reality. In Chariot Challenge cross-functional collaboration, decision making, resource allocation and innovation all come in to play.
How It Works
Teams are provided with an unusual set of equipment including flat cardboard, cardboard rolls, tape, tie-wraps, cutting tools and the all important blueprints. Their challenge is to build a Roman chariot that can be raced to win the champions chalice. Delegates can only use the materials provided. This seemingly impossible challenge requires commitment, resource allocation and quality control. A dynamic and daring race concludes the teams’ challenge.
Learning and development outcomes
Chariot Challenge tests the communication skills, collaboration and creativity to build the ultimate model kit against the clock and against each other. Teams need to plan carefully and work as one to succeed in reaching their goal. Simultaneously, the teams will be faced with extra challenges and tasks before the chariot is finally constructed. Chariot Challenge inspires creativity and is a wonderfully fun shared experience that will be reflected on long after the event.
