Need 4 Speed

Put your team in top gear by taking part in this fun team building experience.


This table-based production line simulation requires teams to create several snap-together cars.

What is Need 4 Speed? 

Need 4 Speed is a production line simulation that requires teams to assemble a number of snap-together concept cars from a pile of jumbled components. Teams must be ultra-efficient in order to succeed. With each car having its own unique style and required extras, pressure is added by the need to shave seconds of successive build times to stay ahead. Participants are encouraged to review their performance in order to constantly improve.

Despite the emphasis on speed, quality control will be ruthless and small defects will be reprimanded. Teams will need to create perfect models at high speeds, no easy task. As each stage progresses, the focus shifts from each team’s individual time to the overall performance of the entire group. Aggregate production times will then be measured against previous groups’ best ever times on the leaderboard.

How can it help your team? 

Need 4 Speed is a highly-rewarding exercise that is often used for teamwork development as it emphasises performance review and improvement in a collaborative setting. Teams must communicate constantly to ensure efficiency and quality, while having fun in a sociable environment. 

Key Learning Outcomes:
