Build Your United Nations

Recognise it? Team build a nation!

Participants are divided over various countries and represent the government of the nation. It is up to them to make their nation prosperous and its population happy. They do this by acquiring the best assets (schools, hospitals etc.) for their country. To acquire assets, the countries need to be in possession of three items. These can be acquired by negotiating with the other countries. To achieve their goals, the countries need one another! When the teams have bought all their required assets, they will visualize their assets by building them with ‘Kapla blocks’ on a huge map in the centre of the room.

In this Management Game you have to work together with your own team, and you have to communicate clearly and make sound agreements with other teams. Various incidents threaten the prosperity of the country, but through efficient cooperation between all teams, the nation can be saved from disaster!

Recognise it? The Nation Building Game as a metaphor!

Companies often consist of different teams and departments. They are connected by a common business goal, but each team also has its own tasks and targets. In the implementation, however, the teams depend on one another. That can create friction. With The Nation Building Game as a metaphor for your business (different countries, one nation, one goal), the participants learn that collaboration is something quite different from ‘working together’. Collaboration requires trust, openness, thinking across borders and integrity in weighing up between their own interests and the common interest.
