Create your own business simulation lab for better team decision-making

The huge interest in Serious Games, where gaming technology is used for serious or business purposes, has made it feasible for far-sighted organizations to gain enduring competitive advantage by creating their own business simulation labs to regularly present their senior teams with possible future business scenarios to improve decision-making and to allow the big mistakes to happen in the simulator and not in the business. My new white paper explains how.

The first part of this paper, to be published in the January 2011 edition of The Effective Executive Magazine, explores how people learn and explains why business simulation has become a vital tool for organizations who need their leaders and decision-makers to be "well drilled" in rehearsing the many highly challenging scenarios they could encounter in the business year.

The second part of the paper builds on this by proposing a systematic road-map which organizations can use to quickly and effectively define, design, calibrate, refine and experience the benefits of their own custom business simulation lab.
