Teams exist within unstable, unpredictable work environments that cannot be controlled and/or managed. In fact, the norm for teams, individuals, and organizations in general is one of ongoing change. The challenge for the 21st century team is to quickly adapt and respond to changing conditions while continuing to perform effectively. Pat Schultz has facilitated highly interactive teambuilding programs and offers her experiential program called "Tall Ships". "Tall Ships" is a highly engaging experiential exercise—a learning game—that challenges teams to race against the clock (and other teams) to build the tallest ship mast at the lowest cost. Players not only learn the skills behind the seven factors that research demonstrates are most critical to effective team performance; they actually practice them, too. In shorthand, those factors are the 7 C’s: Clarity, Capability, Collaboration, Commitment, Communication, Continuous Improvement, and Creativity.
