Ready to unlock the full COMPETENCES and SKILLS of your organisation? Then bring these board games to the board room.
What do we do to prepare ourselves when it really matters in big organizations? How often do we gather the team for a training or warm-up session before launching a new strategy or implementing a strategic change project? In most organizations it rarely or never happens.
Lack of team preparation and change management training is one of the reasons why most companies struggle when it comes to organizational change.
A growing number of companies are inspired by board games to accelerate the organization’s ability to learn and adapt to change. This trend is especially accelerating where business leaders are using this approach to gain an advantage on their competitors. The companies use the simulations as a training ground, where leadership skills, business understanding and key strategies can be tested and fine-tuned before implementation in real life.
Board game based leadership simulations offer a highly efficient way to facilitate a “training environment” where team alignment and performance can be improved.
It is about elevating the organizational change capability with a focus on “just in time training” instead of the traditional “just in case” approach to leadership development.Browse through several board games that can be used for training various competences and skills based on a realistic scenario or use case. We offer these multi-player games for training purposes, including a train-the-trainer course.

During the game you experience the added value of supporting one another. The game scenario is about the comprehensive approach directed to military and civil coalitions and collaboration in humanitarian crisis situations.
