In order to build a relevant business simulation game, we start with an empty page, we then draw a systems diagram of your organization. A good systems diagram shows the dynamic as well as the challenges of an organization. How one thing influences the next and how decisions need to be made based on an understanding of these dynamics. A systems diagram is always a simplification of reality, but it hones in on the essence. This is then translated directly into the design of the business simulation game, and is therefore instantly recognizable and 100% relevant: focused on the achievement of your own organization's goals.
Our expertise is the influencing of human behavior: stimulating people to take responsibility and to give of their best. Central aspects are raising awareness, cultivating insight, developing competencies and skills. InContext Business Simulations is part of InContext Consultancy Group. InContext’s field of excellence and expertise is where the attitudes and actions of people have a direct effect on the success of your organization. The business side of people, the people side of business.
Our games and simulations are designed to challenge participants to reflect, to experiment with behavior, and to lend a sense of urgency to the need for changing their own behavior. They also show how you yourself could make more of an impact. Whether it is a board game, a digital simulation played on a lap-top or tablet or a hybrid game combining our simulations and games with other learning tools, InContext Business Simulations are able to build an exciting simulation capable of absorbing any participants.
Our games and simulations are designed to be open. No pre-engineered disaster scenarios. Our games and simulations respond to the actions of the participants and how they interact, how they collaborate and to what extent: both positively as well as negatively. Not a battle against the computer, but competitive between players who simultaneously experience the need for cooperation in order to achieve goals. All this makes our games engaging, fun and an impressive and sustainable team experience.
Business simulations and business games are not just exciting experiences. Our management games and business simulations are also about taking time to reflect and really understand what has happened and why. Only then can participants and teams of participants make the necessary translation into practice, into real life. Actually translating what happened in the business simulation into real behavior that they can be used the very next day.
High energy, fun, competition: the impact is overwhelming. Shared insights, resolved issues, renewed energy, inspiration and connection. A wealth of ideas ready and waiting to be put into practice. This makes management games and business simulations the most powerful tool you can use. Especially if the simulation is created to mirror the reality of your own organization with its specific vision, strategy, processes, culture and any other elements that are relevant for the experience you want to create.
