Raft Building
A RESCUE-THEMED ACTIVITY WHERE THE TEAM IS MAROONED ON A REMOTE ISLAND AND SUPPLIES ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY. THE ONLY WAY TO SURVIVE IS TO BUILD A RAFT USING THE RESOURCE AVAILABLE AND SET SAIL TO THE MAINLAND.
Teams are tasked with building a raft that can support 4-6 members of each team and can be rowed a certain distance. The resources are very basic and include floatable items. Using this, teams must build a sturdy raft that can be manoeuvred through the waters. Risk factors run high and every small detail is integral to the teams’ survival. The perfect raft floats till the team is transported.

SATISFACTION
The game is great for project management, operations and teams that work on high delivery and risk. Leadership teams learn a lot from the different methods of thinking and execution styles. Young professionals learn the importance of resource management, strategy and time management.
How Raft Building adds value to team?
Strategy
Strategy plays a major role when it comes to survival in adverse situations. Finding ways to build the raft quickly, delegating roles and tasks and ensuring timelines are met are critical for the success of the raft.
Creativity
Creativity runs high as there are multiple designs that may be used to build the raft. Teams must constantly try and execute different approaches to building the raft, and swiftly agree on one design to move forward. Every small detail is relevant.
Time management
The time-based activity pushes teams to plan, build and ship out fast. Every minute makes a crucial difference between the teammates’ survival or collapse. Teams must work together to use each minute wisely, to get the raft afloat before time runs out.
Resource management
Each team gets a bunch of equipment and using this equipment in the right way is vital for the success of the activity. Barrels, tyre-tubes, poles, ropes and oars must be considered carefully, improvised on and used appropriately.
Quality
Planning and resource management can get one only so far without durability. If the quality of build is not paid attention to, then a part of the raft or the entire raft can come apart. To avoid any failures during the escape, the rafts built by the teams must be sturdy and tested for weaknesses.
