Job Aid > Selecting a Simulation

Selecting a Simulation

The fit of a simulation to your organization is key. The following checklist can help you in finding the simulation that is right for you.

□ The type of business context (for example, manufacturing, services, global or domestic, government, public or private sector).

□ The organizational structure (for example, functional, product or matrix, team-based, decentralized, or cross-functional).

□ Turbulent versus stable environment.

□ The number of corporate versus divisional problem situations.

□ The amount of individual versus group actions required.

□ How much and what type of feedback required.

□ The type of culture the participants have come from (for example, authority-based versus group consensus-based cultures).

□ The mixture of individuals from different hierarchical levels.

□ The amount of reading participants are required to prepare.

□ The need for an “assessment of skills” approach without prior information versus a “development” approach, which provides information before the simulation to increase success in the exercise.

□ Decide how important “playful” versus “serious” is.

□ Length of time available.

□ Decide if “physical-handling or movement” simulations are needed versus “knowledge based.”
