"Leaders cannot create the necessary response in the midst of a crisis"*
Business Simulations provide an opportunity to test plans before committing resources. The Valuta Project Simulator gives your team the chance to walk through a plan that might take years to deliver in real time. Working through a complex programme in a simulator increases competence in the critical areas of collaborative working, risk management and planning. By stress-testing key stages of a programme, you will be able to refine your plans, reduce risk and improve your confidence of successful delivery. The Valuta Project Simulator starts with an information gathering phase, when we build our understanding of your project and the environment you are working in. We use this information to develop scenarios which you are likely to face as your project progresses.
The Simulation phase starts with a walk through of the plan in "perfect conditions", then, in the course of an intensive one or two-day period, your team will be faced with a range of unplanned events that will impact your plan. By working through each scenario, your team will develop a deeper understanding of how to manage change and create a repeatable approach for handling disruptive events with efficiency. The benefits gained through simulation include:
- Reduced the risk in your project;
- Identify areas of uncertainty and capability gaps;
- Gain critical insights to support successful delivery; and,
- Increase the capability and confidence of your team.
The medical profession, the military and the emergency services have used simulation for many years to prepare efficient responses in high risk situations. In a recent Financial Times article, organisations that dealt best with unexpected events were those that had the structures and processes in place - "Having a plan is not enough - getting it right takes practice".
Now you can give your team the skills, processes and confidence to work through challenging situations by using the Valuta Project Simulator. Call us now for an obligation-free discussion of your requirements.
