Still Building PowerPoint-centric Training?
In the new world of work, change is happening at an unprecedented pace. Traditional methods of learning are not proving effective, and they need to be reimagined and disrupted.
Effective Training for the Modern Workforce
We design immersive scenario simulation learning experiences that:
Whether on-site, virtual, or both, all employees need to experience high-quality learning experiences that provide equal opportunities for personal satisfaction and career growth. Our training scenario simulations meet the evolving needs of a hybrid workforce by making it possible to facilitate team collaboration from anywhere. They have also been shown to increase employee engagement and enhance empathy, both of which are critical to supporting the transformation to a hybrid working environment.
Scenario Simulation Features
- Synchronous, team-driven, discovery learning
- Blend cutting-edge technology
with sound instructional design
- On-site, virtual, and hybrid delivery options
- Live leaderboard
- Gamification (e.g., scoring, random events, multipliers, etc.)
- Real-life scenarios structured as engaging storylines
- Multiple modalities to facilitate connections to individual learners
- Off-the-shelf, tailored, and fully custom designs
Benefits of Our Business Simulation Training
- Consistently achieve business transformation objectives
- Learners apply new concepts and hone their skills in a safe environment
- Deliver unmatched engagement, which maximizes retention and application
- Virtual and hybrid options equal the impact of on-site deliveries
Types of Business Simulation Training
The new generation of spreadsheet simulations creates a safe space for learners to develop business acumen by modeling real-world challenges that are set in complex marketplaces. Outcomes change in real-time based on participants’ choices, which promotes the exploration of multiple options in any given scenario.
The best spreadsheet simulations give learners the opportunity to experiment and learn through failures without suffering real consequences. They utilize competitive environments to create learner tension, uncover behavioral tendencies, and deliver high-value coaching in the moment. Three such simulations that we have been testing and refining for nearly two decades are:
Business finance and strategy for managers and individual contributors
Enterprise Challenge™ and Executive Challenge™
Business finance and strategy for leaders and high potentials
Branching simulations invite learners to explore and experience divergent decision paths. Highly accurate and detailed feedback allows them to see how their decisions affect the outcome. A branching simulation is effective at developing a broad range of interpersonal and decision-focused competencies, such as sales, service, leadership, and decision-making. It can also incorporate interactions with relevant software and machines.
The most immersive branching simulations combine complex algorithms with sophisticated gaming engines to distribute thousands of nodes. The result is a virtual reality-based experience that showcases the power of artificial intelligence applied to training. Blueline has made significant investments in the design and development of two such simulations for the corporate marketplace:
Performance coaching for managers
Selling skills for sales professionals
Versatile scenario simulations can be used to explore simple dilemmas (delegating work) or complex challenges (launching a new product). Scenario simulations have proven effective for developing a wide range of interpersonal (emotional intelligence) and technical skills (data-driven decision-making). They can be deployed to individuals or teams in synchronous and asynchronous environments.
Blueline’s ExperienceBUILDER™ digital learning design platform makes it possible to deliver scenario simulations to a hybrid workforce. ExperienceBUILDER simulations induce thoughtful conversations, which in turn lead learners to share personal experiences, identify best practices, and uncover common failure points. Learners have the opportunity to build skills as individuals and as part of a team.
