Brainstorming – Jungle Survival

Brainstorming Tools

  • Idea Chains
  • Mind Maps
  • Storyboards
  • Priority Grids
  • Corporate Landscape Analyzer
  • Force Field Analysis
  • Cause/Effect Fishbones
  • Flow Charts (Not reviewed)

These effective but simple tools are intended to give team members a common frame of reference and assist teams by simplifying analysis of complex situations particularly during tight timeframes.

If your team is already familiar with these tools and using them on a regular basis, we can substitute with other tools.

Alternatively, we can make the session process focused rather than tool focused. This will involve additional costs as we will require one observer/assistant facilitator per team to observe and provide feedback about group dynamics during team challenges.

Costa Rica is so rich with rainforests, that it has SIX different types of rainforests form tropical to Riparian rainforests (near rivers and streams).

Depending on the area, hiking rafting, canopy tours, ziplining, and horse riding area available.


It is estimated that 31.1% of Jamaica’s landmass consists of rainforests.
