Sharks Events Centre | Team Building
Team building is an important building block for any company or organisation. Breaking down barriers, exploring a team’s capabilities, or rewarding a team for exceptional work is an important activity for all business.
Claire Duke from Be Challenged brought along the latest in team challenged experiences – the Infinite Loop. Using a fast-paced VR technology, the Infinite Loop is a powerful lean management business game, based on real-time collaboration and communication. The more precise the player in the virtual world is in describing the problem, the faster the teammates in the real world find the solution. Interactive learning, combined with continuous feedback and improvement, makes the teams solve problems in more efficient ways.
