Bean Around the World is a fast paced business simulation and team building activity that recreates  a highly charged trading environment. It highlights the importance of win-win negotiations, collaborative decision making and a clear goal focus.

A team building trading activity that hits all the notes is rare. Bean around the World is unique. It shows you two types of trading and negotiation – within a smaller group, a cartel and also inter-cartel. In addition, bean around the world also highlights change and change management. It’s an ideal business simulation for business groups.

Bean Around The World is not just about trading. It’s strategy, planning, understanding your resources and the constraints. And then its about how best you manage all of this. It’s a brilliant team building trading activity for every managerial group. It’s also been used in the curriculum of some of the largest organizations.


Can we conduct this for larger groups?

Definitely possible, but the learnings are best captured when restricted to groups of upto 90 people.


Can we do it without 12 tables?

Unfortunately, no. We definitely need 12 tables for the teams and 2 more tables for the facilitators. It’s part of the ambience and there’s no point compromising on the overall experience.


Can we reduce the time?

There are some areas that we can speed up. But the activity is best experienced for the full 120 minutes + debrief. With so many dynamics and powerful takeaways from this activity, it’s not worth cutting out any parts.

Is this impactful or just fun?

Its fun AND impactful. Or possibly it’s impactful because it is fun. Any team building trading activity conjures images of stock exchanges, gambling etc. Not this one. This one is intelligent, impactful and insightful. It’s fun and totally engaging.
