The Learning Technologies Summer Forum is an exciting and essential one-day companion event to the established Learning & Skills Group conference, which further develops the key themes from February’s Learning Technologies exhibition.

Business simulation games: Complex, authentic, immersive – and fun!

Caroline Freeman, Director of Design and Colin Welch, Head of Production

Whether scenario- or numerically-based, business simulations are becoming increasingly important to today’s learning blend.

Today’s networked business has to contend with entirely new levels of complexity and variety. A single organisation will simultaneously operate in multiple, radically different contexts depending on time, place and business mission. Managing this need for new skills and knowledge is becoming a challenge for leading organisations across the globe.

Business simulations provide an immersive, dynamic learning space where leaders and teams can learn how to respond to complex challenges and improve their performance without risk to the real business. They can improve authentic decision making and strategy execution across all levels of the organisation.

This session covers:

  • The difference between data-driven and scenario driven simulations
  • Real-life examples of business simulations making an impact on the bottom line
  • Lessons learned in the development and roll-out of these projects
  • The nuts-and-bolts of designing and planning a business simulation – and how to make the lessons stick
