The Creative Appliance Project

The Creative Appliance Project Team Building

Cooking up values driven results

Designing, building and marketing a new appliance in an ‘Apprentice’ style project which focuses on finding the identifying features of the organization and representing them through the product.

Program concept

How recognizable are companies without their logos? Successful contemporary organizations recognize the importance of building a strong corporate identity and culture at the core. Using the popular new approach to building successful company/brand development known as the ‘high concept approach’, teams learn to harness their creative skills and demonstrate how identity can shape brand image internally and externally. Through the process individuals and teams develop the capacity to detect patterns that create emotional and artistic beauty by combining seemingly unrelated ideas into something new and practical.

Description

  • Teams are required to design a ‘larger than life’ product, decide on the product equity, source materials, construct the appliance, and market, brand and pitch their product.
  • The team that most successfully delivers will be the team that can seamlessly transfer their company’s vision, mission and values – also its branding – into this product and still keep the essence of the company alive.
  • Teamwork qualities are recognized and celebrated through the successful allocation of roles and implementation of plans – and ultimately through the presentation of special awards.
