The Collaboration Journey games evolved from our series of Square Wheels illustrations that depict how individuals really work together to impact productivity and performance. The exercise begins with a brief overview using our main illustration to set the stage for continuous improvement on the collaborative journey forward. Often, competition and a lack of planning and communications will sub-optimize the results measurably. This journey takes about 60-90 minutes to introduce, play and debrief.
The game has been designed so that, if desired, it can be integrated with a Square Wheels presentation or workshop to kick off or end a half-day or longer session. Materials include a full debriefing package of slides and ideas. The Simple Collaboration Journey works nicely to focus on issues surrounding team performance, collaboration and planning. Each tabletop plays independently yet results from many tabletops can be easily compared. There is no upper limit as to the number of tables playing simultaneously.
