We’ve got some products we absolutely love running, they were where Kitbag started and have been really well received as we’ve gone through this our first year but every kitbag needs refreshing from time to time and thanks to some client feedback and a client request we’ve got 2 new products to add to the bag.
The first was based on a request from medical devices company Resmed. They were bringing their European commercial team together for a 3 day meeting and needed an exercise or game that was both fun but also stimulated thought they could transport back into the realities of their business. It also had to be accessible to a multi-national multi-lingual audience, couldn’t be expensive and had to be completed in half a day – no challenge then!
We came up with Bread – a simple exercise that takes the team into the world of the bread category in retail and challenges them to use provided and collected data to understand how the category could be grown. Thankfully the game worked (we’ve had a great testimonial from their FD) and they are cool with it now becoming one of our core products
You can find out more about the Bread game (as they named it) here
Bid the Grid
The second new product is a response to repeated client feedback that whilst they loved playing ‘The Property Trading Game’ they didn’t like being bound to London. They wanted the fun, challenge and immersion that The Property Trading Game provided but needed it to be portable to where their organisation or client needed an intervention – our answer is Bid the Grid.
Teams compete to finish a number of tasks they have to bid for from our grid – scoring points on completion to find the eventual winner. It tests the team as a whole, in pairs and as individuals making them plan and allocate tasks working out who will be best at what. The race against time and the other team(s) will drive behaviour that will give the participants lots of food for thought (for that read reflection) and the facilitators some great data to help them help the groups develop.

Now, please form an orderly queue and let us know if we need to get a new order pad printed 😉
