Each Rainforest Game Second Edition Extra Game Pack includes 25 Participant Workbooks, 48 puzzle pieces (separated into 5 drawstring bags), 5 sticker sheets (8 stickers per sheet), and 5 laminated instruction cards. To run multiple rounds of the game simultaneously, order an Extra Game Pack for each additional group of up to 25 participants.
How The Rainforest Game works:
Small teams representing the member organisations of the consortium are challenged to complete a 5-foot long puzzle. Each organisation, sponsoring a specific endangered species, has pieces of the overall picture as well as their sponsored animal. But because no one team has all the pieces, they must be able to work collaboratively in order to successfully complete the task at hand.
Following the activity, participants consider their experience in the context of real-life, organisational experience and discuss the four critical skills needed to effectively work across boundaries:
• Reaching Out
• Sharing Information
• Exploring Alternatives
• Making It Happen
• Learn how to work effectively across functions, geography, and distance.
• Breakdown communication barriers.
• Creatively solve complex problems.
• Examine assumptions about how people and functions work together.
Perfect as a stand-alone learning experience or as part of a larger training initiative, The Rainforest Game is highly adaptable and flexible. The discussions may be focused in several areas including leadership, communication, problem solving, innovation and teamwork.
