What to expect

Teams will represent imaginary companies that have been selected by the fictional Seven Seas Company to bid on a lucrative contract for designing and building a tall ship. In order for a team to get the winning bid, they must demonstrate that they can successfully embody the seven factors of team performance.

The game consists of three rounds. In each round, teams are asked to make the tallest ship mast in the least amount of time or for the lowest cost. Between rounds, groups are asked to reflect on their team work and come up with a new strategy to build a taller mast in the next round. This program helps teams learn about group dynamics in a fun, fast-paced environment!
