Games - The Race to Bid; the Fast-Paced Game of Competitive Bid and Proposal Management
The Race to Bid was created to teach the fast-paced work of competitive bids and proposals. Within 15 minutes, players must race around the board visiting rooms in the office that provide supplies and resources. When the alarm sounds, they must submit their bids.
Experiential Learning at Its Best
Today’s learners get plenty of lectures, PowerPoint presentations and big binders full of paper. The Race to Bid provides a radically different experience. As time ticks away on the clock, players must keep their cool - exactly what they must do in the real world! They must think ahead and gather resources early or risk missing opportunities.
Suitable for New Recruits and Old Pros
The Race to Bid board game stimulates valuable dialogue about proposal process. Playing different roles exposes trainees to how each might experience the challenges of proposal work. Managers will develop empathy for subject matter experts, and proposal professionals will come to understand the challenges of running a complex print operation. Overall, the teams will have a lot of fun and build stronger relationships.
The Race to Bid is a powerful training tool suitable for professional seller-doers, marketing and proposal personnel, and project managers. Anyone challenged with submitting competitive proposals on tight deadlines will benefit from playing. Facilitators must know the game well to realize the full benefits. Workplace Culture Store recommends the extra training package to go along with the game.
