Fact: People retain more information at a faster rate through active participation.
Simulations take advantage of this fact and provide realistic environments where executives can use models and practice behaviors (fusing theory and practice).
As one of the leading designers of behavioral simulations in the world today, we use our expertise to customize existing simulations or create new simulations that fit your individual needs and specifications.
We can develop a custom simulation for you, or you can select an existing simulation. The following are a few examples from our comprehensive library:
