How to get started using business simulations within corporate training.

If you want to successfully use business simulations within corporate training or leadership development, the trick is to start small. If the simulation is too large, learners will lose track of the learning objectives. 

Business training simulations can be tricky, so don’t feel pressure to automatically go digital. In fact, some of the most successful business simulations for leadership development are paper based. Paper-based simulations are effective at reinforcing learning and come at a lower cost. Finally, if you choose to hire a provider to assist, ensure you select a provider you are comfortable partnering with.

Top 5 Tips and Tricks to Successfully Use a Business Simulation Within Leadership Development

  1. Think Simple: Business simulations should not be complicated. Small, focused, closely aligned solutions lead to the highest training-content retention.

  2. Talk to Others: Talk to those who have successfully used business simulations within leadership development. Feel free to contact us. We can put you in touch with companies that have successfully implemented training simulations. They’ll be delighted to assist you.

  3. Grab Some Paper: When most people think of Leadership Development Simulations, they automatically imagine they have to be computer based. However, paper-based business simulations can be highly effective and are easier to manage. 

  4. Stay Focused: Ensure the leadership-development business simulation doesn’t stray from your training goals and objectives. Scope creep is the enemy. Write out your learning objectives ahead of time and ensure the business simulation stays aligned with those.

  5. Partner Up: If you find yourself wanting to build something but expertise isn’t available within your organization, find a partner! You might look for a counterpart within another organization that has done this before and can assist. Alternatively, hire a firm that can assist. Ensure you partner with a firm you have full trust in and that has a great track record of partnering with customers.
