It’s a stroke of genius – you just need to see The Big Picture. The greatest teams are those that come together through the sharing of common goals to create a masterpiece.
Delegates are initially divided into small groups, each responsible for painting a small segment of The Big Picture. Having no idea what the final image will be, teams must work together to ensure that all lines meet and colours match up.
This restriction means that, instead of competing, teams must adopt a ‘big picture’ approach to ensure that the final result is a success. Effective coordination is required for each canvas to fit perfectly. The painted image can be a representation of a company’s brand, conference theme, products, values, goals or even a recreation of a famous work of art.
Upon completion, each team’s canvas is collected and framed together, ready for the big reveal. This is the undoubted highlight of The Big Picture as after a debriefing, the final masterpiece is unveiled for the first time to the inevitable sound of thundering applause and enthusiastic cheers.
The completed work can be proudly displayed back in the office as a constant reminder of what can be achieved through teamwork.
