The purpose of this project was to demonstrate the need for activity analysis in teambuilding programs through prevailing literature and to create an activity analysis database for teambuilding and group initiative programs. This was accomplished by comparing and contrasting teambuilding programs, such as those sponsored by Project Adventure, with information regarding the benefits of activity analysis. Proper facilitation of a teambuilding program is necessary to ensure that the outcomes are beneficial and not harmful to the group or individuals within a group. Activity analysis will not only help a facilitator to achieve the selected goals, but it can be used as a tool to aid in the proper selection of an activity for a group or individual. Such a tool can be created by the standardization of activity analysis by using a uniform, all encompassing checklist as the principle source for finding the appropriate activity.
