Teambuilding New Product:  Outbreak

Outbreak:  Can your team decipher the codes to create a vaccine and save the world?  Teambuilding is currently developing a product that will be ready for launch by end of May.  Teams will need to open a series of boxes, decrypt codes and uncover the correct DNA samples to place in the analyzer in a quest to create a vaccine against a synthetic virus that threatens the world. 

 

How It Works?

Teams learn from an intriguing video that a  few months ago a synthetic virus that destroys  people’s ability to communicate and collaborate  was discovered. A team of international scientists  who, while developing a vaccine against the virus,  have tragically become infected. They are now  unable to cooperate and have encrypted, locked  up and hidden their findings. Teams are challenged  to discover the vaccine and save the world! In this  quest they must open the boxes, decrypt the codes  and bring the right DNA samples to the analyser.  Can they discover the vaccine before it’s too late?

 

Learning Outcomes

Outbreak is a fun and experiential learning game  that enhances team work and problem-solving  skills in a fun and relaxed environment. Effective  communication and active listening are essential  ingredients to success. Over the course of the  game, team members come to realise that each  person’s individual talent, strength and capability  is important to the effectiveness of the team.  Teams learn to work efficiently and effectively  within limited time constraints developing their  collective problem-solving skills.
