Are you ready to transform your virtual or in-person training into an immersive learning experiences? Trainers Warehouse is happy to introduce you to a highly engaging and fun learning digital platform that can be used in your VIRTUAL, HYBRID and IN-PERSON team-building training and activities.
The Warehouse Challenge | A Race Against Time for Planning, Productivity & Continuous Improvement is an engrossing game that challenges teams to correctly "fulfill orders" from a warehouse to your team store. . How will your teams get organized, communicate among themselves, and check that the order is correctly assembled. What happens when time is tight?
The game is simple, yet deeply layered and multi-faceted. It's a perfect complement to your training when covering topics of leadership, performance improvement, planning and organizing, communication, managing change, and more.
Here's the setup. You tell your group that they're responsible for a multi-brand retail chain. They'll be competing with all the other stores in the city. Can they compete? Can they fulfill orders quickly and accurately.
In this high action, high energy game, the team to deliver the order fastest, will win the business! Those submitting incorrect orders will be disqualified, so teamwork is essential to the group's success! Played over the course of 3-7 rounds, teams have the opportunity to improve their timing and minimize errors. The Warehouse activity will put teams to the test and give them lots to talk about in the game review!
THE CHALLENGE - THE FASTEST ORDER FULFILLMENT
The game starts with a "target order," a mix of products of various types ( you can choose your theme) in multiple colors. It might look something like this:
- 24 handheld devices in 3 colors
- 12 servers in red, black, and green
- 10 personal computers in 4 colors
Using their phone or computer, team members will "grab" each item from the warehouse, then drag and drop it into the "team store." Who will do what? Who will organize and keep track of what's in the team store? Who will count the devices and check the colors for accuracy? Over the course of the game, the orders will become larger and more complex, forcing teams to improve their performance in subsequent rounds, and requiring a wide range of skills and competencies. The fast-paced experience draws out critical team dynamics, leading to a rich, robust post-exercise debrief.
