Orienteering means moving forward on the ground, with the help of a map and a compass, finding by one’s own self, or together with the team, the best way to go along, according to the conditions of the ground, to the street network, to the obstacles and the dangerous stretches. This particular sport requires assessing which is the quickest and the most convenient path to reach the established destination.
The competition is a sort of cross-country race, but the challengers or the teams, with the help of a map and a compass, must reach the finish as soon as possible via a series of checking points conventionally called “lantern” or “flag”.
The orienteering encourages people to break out of the mental and behaviour mould and to learn new models starting from their own experiences and from the related thoughts and considerations. It’s an answer to the need of change and a precious means for developing the top management in every company that cares about the growth of its own team.
