Business simulation without programming opportunity - partner search
My Eureka moment was 12 months ago - since then I have developed a fully working prototype of a tool to automate simulation building into just 3 steps:
STEP 1 - Define the "Life History" of the main business objects in the simulation
STEP 2 - Identify the main decisions to be explored in the simulation
STEP 3 - Cross-reference the impact of each decisions on the objects life history
To checkout a portfolio of applications built to test the prototype click here.
Also here is a PDF of the 2-page generic business simulator reference card which summarises the ptototypes underpinning meta model and the process whereby new user sims are created.
I am now looking for Business Partners interested in taking this to the next level.This could involve turning my prototype into a shrink-wrapped product and marketing it via existing channels or embedding the engine into an existing product using web services.
Partners could be business strategy/learning consultancies who want to develop their own unique tool or serious games companies who want to embed it inside their existing platforms or software companies who already have a portfolio of related products or even pragmatic academics who are looking a platform for a research project.
If you are interested in exploring this opportunity get in touch with me (Ken Thompson) by email.

Bioteams Books Reviews
Humans and animals do not need complete information to act; they can operate on various clues provided there is a sufficient context. Organizational teams can also use this thin slicing technique in conjunction with short messaging to enhance their performance. Malcolm Gladwell’s introspective book Blink digs deep into the abyss of human cognition to illustrate the human ability to think at a subconscious level. The idea of thin slicing is used where one is introduced to only a few snippets of information which lead to a series of conclusions based on moments of rapid cognition – an ability claimed to be intrinsically dormant in most humans.
