“Building a visionary company requires one percent vision & 99 percent alignment”
This quote by James R Collins brilliantly defines the reason why some companies are able to achieve what they aspire for and why so many also fail in this process. The core difference lies in successfully implementing a vision alignment framework and engaging all stakeholders to follow it diligently. So it becomes very important how employees are engaged around core vision, its pillars and alignment framework throughout the year.

The Chain Reaction Challenge is an exhilarating, high-energy collaborative team building activity combining strategy, imagination, and plenty of hands-on action. Split up into smaller groups, the teams will be collaborating, designing, planning and building their own crazy contraptions to achieve a common vision. Employees are divided and work in teams to build a working machine performing a very simple task (like ringing a bell) in an insane complex manner and should operate fully functional. Each team is responsible for their specific zones, and each zone must ensure the ideal fit and movement from one zone to the next using a series of unique, obscure, and interesting materials ranging from domino blocks, cardboard boxes, ping pong balls, marbles, balloons, levers, pipes and so on. This means that, in order to successfully complete their task, each team must communicate and collaborate with their surrounding teams rather than just focusing their individual work. Since the mission is challenging, teams have to think strategically and develop a common vision in order to bring their crazy invention to life!
