Bridge-it business simulation

The business simulation Bridge-it is a wonderful vehicle for discussing and experiencing project management. The setup of Bridge-it contains a complete series of projects with a rising scale of difficulty. Furthermore, participants must incorporate the project results into a running business. A running business for which the project results cannot come quickly enough in order to achieve its operating targets, but that suffers from them at the same time. It suffers from them because they are 'over the wall', 'just too late', 'too expensive', 'don't quite fit', and because annoying but essential repair and finishing activities are required.

Bridge-it is frequently used to help organizations think about managing projects and programs in a more general sense, separately from any type of project management method. Besides being able to apply the method, project managers and team members must have skills and experience in terms of group dynamics, conflict management and leadership. In other words... they need to learn to sail in stormy weather!

Benefits of Taking This Simulation:

  • The participant has become versed in the Project management basic concepts (Knowledge)
  • The participant is familiar with the various Project management processes and understands how they are related (Process awareness)
  • The participant is capable of recognizing roles, targets and responsibilities, and can take action accordingly (Process based working)
  • The candidate appreciates collaboration and is able to adapt at times in order to be more effective and efficient as a team (Cooperation)
  • The participant understands that his or her work is oriented towards the creation of value for customers (Customer oriented working)

Duration: 1 day
Number of participants: 8-16
Related framework: PMP®, PRINCE2®

Control-IT business simulation

For many years now Control-IT has been used as a successful intervention in the area of ICT Service Management. Control-IT is energizing and will motivate you to adopt ITIL processes.

The strong client perspective in the simulation “forces” you and your colleagues to discover and implement Service Management yourselves. And so, helping you to be successful in the implementation in your real organization.

Control-IT provides you with the opportunity to make full use of all the experience, knowledge and ideas of your staff and/or your colleagues and it will help to motivate them.

Benefits of Taking This Simulation:

  • The participant has become versed in the ITIL theory, structure and basic concepts (Knowledge)
  • The participant is familiar with the various Process management processes and understands how they are related (Process awareness)
  • The participant is capable of recognizing roles, targets and responsibilities, and can take action accordingly (Processbased working)
  • The candidate appreciates collaboration and is able to adapt at times in order to be more effective and efficient as a team (Cooperation)
  • The participant understands that his or her work is oriented towards the creation of value for customers (Customer oriented working)

Duration: 1 day / 4 hours
Number of participants: 5-15
Related framework: ITIL®

Ease-it business simulation

Ease-it is often deployed in order to improve processes, based on various methods. The business simulation supports Lean or BPM implementations, for example, to clarify directions for solutions.

Ease-it confronts participants with matters such as chain-based thinking, quality, cost awareness and results orientation. These concepts are given a concrete meaning in the simulation. Participants experience the big difference between talking about it and actually implementing and doing it.

Duration: 1 day
Number of participants: 8-15
Related framework: Lean, BPM

A Heart Effort business simulation

The A Heart Effort questions and answers game was developed to get participants talking about a specific subject concerning their work and the organization in which they function. We use sets of questions geared specifically to the subject. The refined game design stimulates participants to discuss themes from a number of angles, to look for differences, to avoid socially desirable answers and to provide concrete examples from daily practice.

A Heart Effort is extremely suitable as a quick scan or kick-off at the start of a change process.

Results:

  • A Heart Effort provides important and concrete input for improvement projects
  • A Heart Effort breaks through standard patterns for meetings and consultations
  • A Heart Effort helps participants discuss topics freely
  • A Heart Effort confronts participants with one another’s concerns, wishes and ideas
  • A Heart Effort stimulates participants to let go of obvious solutions and viewpoints

Duration: 1-3 hours
Number of participants: 5-200
