Fun, structured globe-trotting race around the world for teams working remotely.


The online team development exercise Race Around the World is created exclusively for distant professionals. The activity is supplied through our award-winning Go Team app and is playable on any device, anywhere. Each of Race Around the World's three levels has a range of entertaining and interesting tasks.

Each team is a representation of an explorer. Players collaborate in guiding their team's explorer avatar throughout the world via video conferencing. For teams to successfully finish all three game levels with the maximum number of points, they must pay attention to online bulletins and evaluate information acquired on the game map. A learning platform with timed phases and the additional pressure of managing limited resources is very engaging.

Outcomes of Learning

Race Around the World facilitates the development of soft skills applicable to working from home for remote employees. Teams must adopt a flexible approach to their joint strategic thinking and planning, as the game's goals develop progressively and circumstances alter. Participants in Race Around the World are challenged to acquire knowledge, analyze critically, and compare their answer to that of their teammates within an iterative learning framework. Under time constraints, teams discover that online communication differs significantly from face-to-face conversation. The keys to team success include attentively listening to receive and analyze communications, observing facial clues, and articulating properly and concisely.
