Questions you may have
How many participants can participate in the Focus Challenge at the same time?
The challenge supports 10 to 400 participants simultaneously, since the activity is run by a designated computer system.
What does the activity look like?
The participants are divided into small teams, randomly selected or predetermined, and listen to the challenge story. In order to reach the desired achievement, they prepare to execute a sophisticated set of tasks. Here we go. The clock is ticking. They are working at full power.
What happens after the game?
Once the game is over, we will guide a discussion about the "traps" teams and the group as a whole fell into, team and group successes, and (most importantly) how those experiences relate to similar situations in the real life.
Central to this discussion are the following ideas:
Accountability-initiating solutions rather than responding, moving things forward, taking responsibility for tasks, etc.
Big picture mentality- perform in a multi tasking environment, long term vs short term mentality.
Collaboration—managing partnerships, cooperation, influencing without authority, coming on board.
Wow, these are the exact issues that we are dealing with in our organization. How did you know?

Yes, as mentioned, the challenge is managed by a computerized system, and the tasks can be easily adjusted.
Well, there is one more thing, Is there a chance that people within the workplace would choose not to cooperate ?
Having worked with more than 50,000 participants globally, we have not encountered such a phenomenon. The fun experience in small teams creates involvement and commitment to success
