Simulations: Why Are They Effective?

Indeed, why ARE business simulations so effective? For starters, this kind of experiential learning takes people out of their day-to-day business role and puts them in another. They can make important decisions without risk. They learn how the rest of the organization works, what’s really important, and how to tweak their individual effort to make a more meaningful impact.

In short, learners – and corporate training professionals – love simulations because they’re fun, challenging, and they work! In this article from BTS EVP Rommin Adl, you’ll learn why simulations are a great way to drive your organization’s learning goals.

You’re buckling in for an overseas flight in a brand-new Boeing 777. The pilot comes on the PA: “Ah, ladies and gentlemen, our flight time today will be six and a half hours at an altitude of 33,000 feet. And I should mention that this is the first time I have ever been on a 777. Wish me luck.”

Before setting foot in the real world, pilots, military personnel and disaster response teams use intense simulations to learn how to respond to high-intensity challenges.

Why would we place corporate leaders and their teams in situations without first giving them a chance to try things out? The risks are huge — new strategy investments can run into the hundreds of millions of dollars. BTS offers a better way: customized business simulations.
