The Deloitte Business Simulation Game: Accelerate The Implementation Of Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability
Source: Deloitte LLP
The development of effective learning and leadership skills comes through practical experience and structural reflection. However, companies can seldom afford the time and resources to explore and test business practices in real life operational decision making. The Business Simulation Game is a safe and inspiring learning environment that enables organisational learning and leadership development. The Business Simulation Game enables companies to experiment with a realistic model of their company and its potential future scenarios. During the Business Simulation Game, the players go through several business cycles, experiencing critical moments and interdependencies and most importantly they are confronted with the consequences of their decisions. Decisions do not occur sequentially but simultaneously and interactively, just as in the daily business world. The hands-on learning approach helps to sharpen management skills through practice, feedback from teammates and coaching from experienced facilitators. The feedback as well as the frequent discussions and debates that arise during the game provide exceptional value in the learning process. The Deloitte Business Simulation Game enables you to experience how to reconcile dilemmas and to respond to short-term priorities while ensuring positive impact on long-term sustainability. Through feedback based on decisions taken during the game and through reflection among the participants, the game provides a unique collaborative learning experience. Participants compete in cross organisational teams to succeed in business, and thus trigger the competitive and cooperative spirit, achievement of common goals and the recognition of victory.
