Create Cross-Functional Team Alignment

As we face more change, ambiguity and complexity at work, it’s easy for people to lose sight of the big picture and focus on what they know – their own work. That’s why we built The Big Picture, an engaging simulation that illustrates the importance of breaking down silos through effective communication and alignment to the big picture.

The Big Picture

Interactive Learning Experience for Cross-Functional Teams

Participants are divided into ten teams of 5-10 people who will collectively produce an specific 8-by-10 foot image that represents the theme of your event (Yes, you can customize the image). The image is composed of 20 squares. Each team is responsible for producing two of the image squares and must ensure the lines and colours of their squares align with the adjacent squares of other teams.

To be successful, the group must define and communicate expectations, develop an execution strategy, and take time to stop, evaluate, and change course when necessary. The group’s success at managing the project will be graphically illustrated by the finished billboard. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Recognize  the importance of connecting to the big picture when working on individual strategy 
  • Know how to create cross-functional alignment to ensure efficient execution
  • Understand the impact that effective communication across teams and functions has on individual performance
