How It Works
Following the introduction of the survival scenario, participants are challenged to rank six action strategies and 10 duffle items - first as individuals and then a second time as a team. Participants compare their team scores to the best individual score and expert rationale to determine if synergy was achieved.
The two-hour workshop explores the concept of synergy and helps teams to develop vital group-process skills such as decision making and problem solving. The exercise also includes an introduction to three elements of synergy, a five-step problem-solving technique, four critical group maintenance skills, and the importance of consensus decision making.
The Beyond the Valley of the Kings Facilitator Guide includes everything trainers need to lead the simulation and classroom training workshop, from comprehensive background information and expert rationale to a step-by-step workshop outline, expert rationale, alternative training designs, and a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation.Uses and Applications
Beyond the Valley of the Kings can be used as a standalone training instrument or incorporated into a more comprehensive program on teambuilding. It's also effective as a component for problem-solving and decision-making training programs.
