Why business simulations

Pilots, military officers and surgeons go through thousands of hours of simulated training and practice before taking on their responsibilities. This is because simulated training environments teach these professionals how to effectively deal high-pressure situations, critical challenges and emergencies.

Given the huge acceptance of such simulations, wouldn't it, therefore, be wonderful if our learners also went through the same kind of experience to apply and test their learning?

What is a business simulation

A simulation is the imitation of a real-world process or system over time. For decades, simulated training has become very popular for learning new skills and technical processes, in a safe environment where learners can practice without impacting real-world situations.
Research and common sense both indicate that behavioral capabilities are much harder to learn than technical skills. Research suggests that this typically takes 10,000 hours or 6-10 years to accomplish. Therefore, learners find it difficult to sustain the practice of ambiguous and complex skillsets. As a result, error margins are higher, and the cost of not mastering a skill is substantial.

Leadership development

iLead

Effective Team Management

iLead is an innovative software simulation that helps business leaders hone their leadership styles. To successfully complete the simulation, learners are expected to use a variety of leadership styles in response to touch scenarios and produce extraordinary results by energizing and inspiring the team.

ChangeQuest

Drive Change Management

ChangeQuest is a Change Management simulation, where participants play the role of a change agent in a virtual organization. The objective is to secure the support of various stakeholders in the organization to bring in a transformational change.

Build-Your-Business

Develop Business Acumen

Build Your Business is an exciting business acumen simulation where the participants step into the shoes of a CEO and takes decisions spanning HR, Finance, Marketing, R&D with an objective of maximizing net profits. The simulation tests the participants on concepts revolving around P&L management, operational decision making and strategic execution.

Trust

Influence & Build Trust

Trust Simulation develops scenarios to influence and build trust with your stakeholders. It focuses on Relationship Styles, Power Map and Building Trust. Relationship Styles helps one understand the drivers of the stakeholders, Power Map aids in identifying the relationship between stakeholders, and Building Trust using Trust Equation concepts.

Delegate & Prioritize Tasks

In the lnbox simulation, the participants assume the role of an employee in an organization where they have to deal with the tasks of a busy day. The participants are exposed to a series of tasks and are expected to achieve business objectives by reading, writing e-mails, prioritizing and executing tasks within the allotted time.

Coaching

Coach & Manage Performance

The Coaching Sim helps managers learn the essentials of coaching and apply it in a safe, real-life like environment. Coaching is a complex skill, as a coach should not only motivate the team but also master the nuances of dealing with the inner emotions of a team member. The Coaching Sim has all these complexities built into itself, thereby making the learner exercise his faculty fully to have a successful coaching conversation.

Sales simulations

SalesQuest

Boost Sales Capabilities

The SalesQuest simulation places a user in the shoes of a sales executive, who is tasked with selling a B2B solution to individual customers. The user is presented with a sales funnel and no customer to begin with. The user needs to generate leads, qualify them, and with more and more interactions, convert them into revenue – just like a real life scenario!

Grand Prix

Facilitate Project Management

Grand Prix/F1 simulation traverses through the journey of a team manager who has to take key decisions in hiring the right personnel, take key engineering decisions, partner with sponsors and manage risks to take the team to victory in the upcoming grand prix season. The simulation takes users through an exciting journey of racing and tests their project and portfolio management mettle to get things done on time with the appropriate amount of resources.

Simulations for assessment

A key component of KNOLSKAPE’s virtual assessment suite are business simulations. Employing two simulations - The iLead Leadership Simulation and the Inbox Simulation, L&D teams can capture actual behaviors rather than the intended behaviours, allowing them to gather accurate information on an individual’s strengths, areas of improvement, motivation and role readiness.
