Team Activities for an Assessment Centre

I am running an assessment centre to select delegates for a Management Development Programme and am looking for a team activity. I have a number of activities that I have been using for a few years, Zin Obelisk and Marooned on the Moon being typical examples, but as they are fairly 'well thumbed' a lot of people in the business are familiar with them, so if anyone has any suggestions of something new or different I would be extremely grateful!

I have two pages that may help. One discusses Managerial Competency Models -

And the other discusses issues associated with using computer simulations on assessment centres -

I hope that this helps.

We use an activity based on the delegates 'building' their ideal town.
they are provided with a peice of flip paper with a green circle - area of outstanding antural beauty, and a blue line - river, and a compass point, drawn on.
They are then given a brief which outlkines what they are setting out to do . i.e build their IDEAL town, a list and no of buildings, such as pubs, restaurants, schools, gas works, sewage plant, terraced and detached houses, flats, asylum seekers refuge etc.... the list can go on and on. All these buildings are prebuilt from lego so the idea is they place buildings on flip paper. Th point being that they don't tend to build their ideal town, they tend to include sewage and gas works, jail, refuges, large trading estates....all very PC, however during debrief when you ask the question would you live there????? the answer is invariably NO....therefore did you build your ideal town???

lots of thought provoking discussion can be brough out.

I have recently developed a Graduate Program for our business, I am currently confirming the details of the assessment centre and was wondering if anyone could share group activities with me. I have heard of Cooperation vs Conflict? Any ideas?
