The Cake Factory – an organisational lab
In the Cake Factory the participants are challenged to start, run and develop a factory. This suits larger groups that want to move quickly in a short time in a specific issue. The Cake Factory is an experience based organisational game where the participants are challenged together to start, run and develop a cake factory, so that it becomes efficient, competent, quality aware, responsive and creative. All of this takes place in a demanding environment with realistic pressure from competitors, suppliers, clients and owners.
The basic concept for the factory is a drama that is driven by the participants’ actions and the game leadership’s interventions. Restructuring happens as organisations merge, new products are developed and the market reacts. Lack of time... demand for results and change work... The action can be tweaked towards specific phenomena as business development, diversity and product development. Other phenomena as leadership, communication, team, limits and change processes are constantly present.
