ABOUT

An innovative corporate team building exercise, EdgeWork increases the capacity of individuals and teams to perform in cross-organizational and cross-functional contexts. As its name suggests, EdgeWork explores how those on the edges of organizations can better build wroking relationships with their counterparts in other organizations, given their respective goals, conflicts and interdependencies.


EdgeWork offers substantial opportunities for participants to learn (from completing assignment, overcoming hardships, and working with other people) over the course of several distinct phases:


  • Simulation Introduction, Set-up, and Reading of Materials
  • Session One - Divisional Meetings
  • Session Two - Cross - Company Special Issue Meetings
  • Session Three - Company - Wide Meetings
  • Session Four- Presentation of Company Reports
  • Simulation Debrief
