Orienteering is an engaging and powerful team-building and team simulation designed to create an immediate impact on how teams work together by assessing their strengths and areas of vulnerability using a creative, experiential learning approach. This hands-on business simulation takes teams (intact, cross-functional, special-project teams, and others) into the outdoors and replicates the common challenges that teams face on a daily basis.
Orienteering requires participants to use a simulation scenario, outdoor terrain, and navigational tactics to identify specified points on a map and then travel, by foot, to the designated locations. Once there, they must gather the resources needed to execute the team-building simulation and return to the starting point in order to complete the task they have been assigned and create value for the organization. By the end of the simulation, orienteering participants will have increased their awareness of the skills and knowledge necessary to develop a high-performing team and pinpoint opportunities for improvement in their own team environment.
