Description

The simulations in this two binder collection. are designed to provide a wide choice of settings for your training assessment activites. The Dubchinzaneth Building Project: Tasked with providing help following a major international disaster, your participants must choose a reconstruction project. How will they plan the construction? What unexpected problems will they face and how will the team tackle them? The Nasmullin Product Development Project: Tasked with championing a new product development project, your participants must plan and manage the development of the product overseas in the face of threats to financial stability, sabotage and legal action. The Valleys Local Authorities Merger: As managers in a Local Authority, your participants need to make the merger with their neighbouring authority run successfully. The Brabent Hospital Trusts Merger: Your participants need to merge their Hospital Trust with a neighbouring Trust. Their job is to choose a merger project team and convince their colleagues of their choices. Then tackle the problems as they arise. Part One includes a complete set of guidance materials for running the simulations for an assessment or a development centre. And you can choose whether to run a linked sequence of activities or to mix and match across the four settings. Part Two includes guidance materials for using the simulations to train and develop the members of a team, or alternatively, team leaders and managers. Use them before, during or after the training, to identify needs, check learning, or let them practice applying the lessons. Part Three contains copies of all materials for running the simulations, for participants, centre managers and trainers. These simulations are a perfect way to assess and/or develop a wide range of core skills.
