Playhouse Challenge™

In this business simulation focused on the creation of playhouses for schools and shelters, there is no time to disengage.  Your teams will design it, build it, decorate it and then meet the kids who will enjoy it. Epic!

The Playhouse Challenge™ simulates challenges corporate teams face every day while offering a dynamic platform to create a shared vision for the future and reshape company culture.

Working in teams of 15, each group receives an ‘order’ from the ‘customer’ and are given all the supplies and tools needed to create a physical structure. During the planning and building periods, teams must develop new ways to meet tight deadlines, work within safety regulations, resolve miscommunications, develop proper plans and execute the collective vision.

What emerges are one-of-a-kind playhouses, as well as more cohesive teams. The playhouses ‘built for the customer’ are donated to special guests from local shelters, schools, or other non-profit organizations.
