Kidnapped! A Rescue Mission

Kidnapped! A Rescue Mission

A corporate rescue mission created to deliver genuine organizational benefits back to your team

A crime has been committed and time is running out. It is up to the people on your team to organize an emergency mission to achieve your main objectives to rescue the victim and catch the kidnapper!

This business simulation training team building program has been designed by Corporate Explorer Training to be completed in stages. With the clues picked up as teams progress, each subsequent stage will require that the knowledge gleaned from earlier stages be used to continue forwards to the ultimate goal: Rescue!

In this fun business simulation workshop you will:

  • Refine problem solving skills
  • Learn better prioritization techniques
  • Develop effective communication and listening
  • Explore creative thinking and collaborative learning
  • Work through conflict resolution
  • Improve time management and decision making
  • Understand risk assessment and management

Kidnapped! can be customized to include a back story that is relevant to your organization. Better still, the actual identity of the kidnapping victim AND the kidnapper can be customized to your group. If there is someone in your organization who would be a compelling hostage (the chairman of the board or a cherished customer perhaps?), Corporate Explorer Training can modify the Kidnapped! program to suit your specifications.

Your people will be inspired by both the challenge presented and the sense of urgency as they do battle with the clock to rescue the person who has been kidnapped and taken hostage. The environment created requires attention to detail, creativity, great teamwork and dedication. After all, a human life is at stake! In a dramatic climax, your group will (hopefully) discover the victim and perform the rescue. Participants will walk away from the Kidnapped! program feeling like they've experienced a true Adventure with a strong sense of accomplishment.

How the program works

Stages will be tackled one at a time; some will require the efforts of the entire group, while others will use smaller teams. Teams will be changed at several points in the program, so everyone will have an opportunity to work with different people. Each person will end up with a score at the end of the session that consists of:

  • A combination of their small team scores
  • Points from a final investigation quiz
  • Identifying the actual kidnapper

Every stage will demand a slightly different set of skills be employed to successfully navigate the challenge. Following each stage, people will regroup and assess how best to proceed. During these meetings, the 'Tactical Commander' (a Corporate Explorer Training facilitator) will receive reports about the group's progress and then assist in outlining the next stage of the rescue operation. These meetings will be interactive and critical to the overall success of the mission.

Because Kidnapped! is a training program with genuine organizational benefits, these meetings between stages will also be the time when the training/learning outcomes are reviewed and highlighted. For those paying close attention, there may also be hints dropped as to the attributes required to address the upcoming stage's hurdles.

In each phase of this program, the group will be visiting different areas to solve problems, gather evidence, conduct trials and prove hypotheses. Kidnapped! has been structured to take advantage of an area's existing features, including geography, attractions and neighborhoods. Depending on the time of year, it can be either biased to conducting challenges outside or inside.

To rescue the victim, demonstrating a range of different skill sets is essential. Also, group dynamics will prove to be important as every individual will be faced with adapting to varying group compositions. Some stages pit small groups against one another, while others are more team oriented.
