If you want your group to start interacting and enjoying themselves from the word go, then “Chain of Command” is a good bet.

‘Chain of Command’ is a game that fosters problem-solving skills. The emphasis is on facing challenges as a team through trust and co-operation. Leadership must be shared in order for the group to accomplish the task which creates rich discussion during the debrief.

A glimpse into Chain of Command:

The game has a line-up pattern and therefore the name Chain of Command. The facilitator indicates a strict deadline. This will simulate a fair amount of  “real life” office stress among the participants. Using the many variations to Chain of Command, you can help participants discover the pitfalls of gaps in communication and to appreciate the nuances of different communication styles.

This is a game that has a lot of fun in store for the facilitator too. You can create even more challenges and raise the bar in fun quotient, by making the going extremely tough for capable teams. But at the same time you can play benevolent, by simplifying the task for a troubled team that may be stuck and not having any fun at all!

Who should go for this game?

If you are looking for a game that involves thinking through a problem and solving it as a team, then choose Chain of Command. The game is based on team dynamics in tackling problems.

What will the group learn from Chain of Command?

  • Delivering an optimum solution within a tight deadline.
  • To think creatively, on their feet, under pressure.
  • That a good working relationship, good communication and trust within a team can go a long way in efficiently handling business situations.

The insight gained from the activity usually gets articulated by the participants in the conversation initiated by the facilitator after the exercise. It is critical to have this dialogue with the group because the thoughts vocalized after a team building exercise will ultimately drive home what the exercise sought to accomplish in the first place.
