The Apprentice is Ideal for teams that want a fun learning experience in 1 hour or more.
This program asks delegates to demonstrate what it takes to win a customer`s business. Each group interacts in a new customer market and is required to come up with a solution. They will need to use all their skills, creativity, and ingenuity if they are to succeed!
The Apprentice TV show concept has been adapted as a team-based activity in a setting of winning a ‘fictitious’ customers business. As a corporate team-building event, a classroom exercise, or a community group exercise, teams battle it out to win. Here are some key elements the Apprentice activity / concepts incorporates as a great team-based activity:
- Divide participants into teams: Like in the TV show, participants should be divided into teams that will compete against each other in various challenges. The teams can be randomly assigned or selected based on a common interest or skill set.
- Assign tasks: Each team should be given a series of tasks to complete within a set timeframe. These tasks can be related to the specific context of the team-building event, classroom exercise, or community group exercise.
- Develop challenges: Challenges can be designed to test the teams’ problem-solving, communication, and collaboration skills. These can be physical, mental, or creative in nature.
- Set rules and guidelines: Clearly define the rules and guidelines for the competition, including the scoring system, deadlines, and consequences for breaking rules.
- Provide resources: Each team should be provided with the necessary resources to complete the tasks, such as materials, equipment, and access to experts.
- Foster teamwork: Encourage each team to work together and delegate tasks among team members. Encourage open communication and brainstorming to develop innovative solutions.
- Evaluate performance: At the end of each challenge, evaluate the performance of each team based on the criteria established at the beginning of the activity.
- Award winners: At the end of the activity, award the winning team with a prize, such as a trophy, certificate, or recognition.
By adapting the Apprentice TV show concept as a team-based activity, participants can develop key skills such as teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, and communication. It can also be a fun and engaging way to build morale and strengthen relationships among team members.
