Admit it—you loved scavenger hunts and treasure hunts when you were a kid. We all did. Creating a team building treasure hunt for your organization (office, department, networking/social group) sounds like a GREAT idea—fun, interactive, and low-cost. The questions is, with all the option out there, how do you pull it off? How should the hunt be structured? What should the clues look like? And how can you tie it all back to business issues while still making it fun? When it comes to team building these days, you only have so much time and budget—your reputation is on the line. You have to make EACH EVENT COUNT.
