Simulations have been around for a long time. They were originally used in three main industries--the military, medicine, and aviation. These three have in common the risk of serious consequences, if a mistake is made.
Business simulation is different, but no less valuable. The lack of risk allows learners the freedom to try, fail, and try again. A well-designed business simulation is highly effective for preparing employees for their work. A poorly-designed simulation will do nothing more than distract and confuse learners, keeping them from connecting the dots between simulated activity and real-life application. The quality of design can make or break the outcome.
A simulation is only as good as its design. Here are some tips for creating successful simulations:
Creating an effective simulation requires some planning and thought about the best strategies to achieve the goal, which is an activity that is a true learning experience.
