Organizations and teams are constantly faced with demanding requirements from both their internal and external customers. Satisfying customer’s needs requires both understanding the requirements and working together as a team. Build A Boat will provide the perfect “vehicle” to help bring this to the forefront.
A key customer with specific requirements has just placed an order for a fleet of boats. Each team must work together to build a boat for the fleet. Teams are provided with all materials (cardboard, plastic sheets, and duct tape) required to build a boat capable of carrying at least one person across the finish line. The resources come at a price and teams must stay within their budget.
The customer will be looking for a fleet of boats that meet their specifications, looks good, and goes fast. In fact, each boat will be tested for its seaworthiness in a race around a series of buoys. In addition, the customer will also be looking for a dazzling marketing presentation and a creative flag for each boat in the fleet.
Note: This program can be delivered as an outdoor activity in a natural body of water or as an indoor activity. As an indoor activity the regatta portion of the event can take place in a pool, or on land using tubes and plungers in place of water and paddles.
