Deadline is a tablet-based strategy game where teams take on the role of the logistics department of a fashion chain and must plan the procurement, transportation and production of garments.
The challenge is to solve the task by working together as a team to assess all of the options to arrive at a solution at the lowest cost before the deadline.
Teams are given access to a vast amount of information such as cotton prices, transportation schedules, production schedules and much more. The team are placed under intense pressure from the beginning and to complicate things, the tablet repeatedly throws up new challenges and problems which may send them back to square one - whether that be a civil war in Ghana or a monsoon in Australia - there will always be something to contend with.
Deadline is a strategic challenge which draws out some key team working learnings which will be discussed and analysed by your facilitator following the session.
