Introduction

The Pitch Game is a behavioural game. The game measures a person's collaborative behaviour, i.e. whether a person is more collaborative or more individualistic. In this game, we measure several dimensions of collaboration, such as team support, information sharing, and learning.

Scoring and implications

The game's scoring algorithm is based on percentile scoring. Players can score in each of the following 5 buckets:

  1. Very individualistic;

  2. Somewhat individualistic;

  3. Neutral;

  4. Somewhat collaborative;

  5. Very collaborative.

To clarify the implications of different scores on this spectrum, below you'll find a comparison between bucket 1 (very individualistic) and bucket 5 (very collaborative).

Bucket 1. Very individualistic

Bucket 5. Very collaborative
