Mission

The mission of Teampedia is to become the world's largest collection of resources (e.g. warmups, icebreakers, and other group facilitation and training activities) to facilitate teamwork, teambuilding, and community.

Goals

  • To collaboratively develop, share and archive the world's largest collection of teambuilding resources
  • To bring team leaders, team members, consultants, and facilitators together in a vibrant online community where all contributions are valued

  • To combine the power of teamwork and technology to generate and refine collective knowledge
  • To support those working to promote deeper understanding, improve communication, increase enjoyment, build trust, resolve conflicts, and generally create more efficient, fun, effective, creative, harmonious, inclusive, collaborative, and enjoyable teams and communities
  • To generate enough revenue for this website to be self-sustaining (including hosting and development costs)
  • To respect copyright and intellectual property rights
