How can managers gain insight into their management style?
How does it manifest itself in their day-to-day contact with employees? How do their subordinates see them? What constitutes an 'ideal' manager, and is there such a thing as an 'ideal' management style? How does management style affect team-building efforts?
These are the kinds of questions The Construction Game is designed to explore. By placing the participants in competing teams and selecting team leaders, we can observe the ‘managerial style’ of these leaders and compare their analysis of it with the perceptions of their peers.
What is The Construction Game Activity?
The game itself requires the participants to construct a warehouse using plastic girders. The process involves planning, organising and bidding to win the contract, followed by a construction phase, working to a set of specifications and performance criteria.
The Construction Game comes complete with guidelines for the trainer and is ready to use straight out of the box. Additional parts needed for more players.
The whole exercise, including discussion, is suitable for up to 15 participants (maximum 3 teams), and takes between 60 and 90 minutes. Extra parts can be purchased if more than 15 players wish to take part. See Related products below.
