Traditional management education and development methods often fall short of the mark when you need to train managers for the global environments in which they now compete.

Business simulations and games give you an immensely useful tool for  experiential learning that can boost training effectiveness.

The truth is that everyone enjoys playing business games, because they offer hands-on involvement, teamwork and competition in a life-like environment.

  • Various types and uses of the latest generation of simulations
  • Choosing the right approach for your business simulation
  • How well-designed interventions change behavior in measurable ways
  • Lessons from companies using these powerful methods
  • And the list goes on and on
