Morgan Clarke’s Approach
We designed and built a bespoke, computer-based business simulation modelling the full breadth and depth of the client’s business. Using an interactive gaming board, participants ran their own look-alike companies in competitive teams. This showed participants the connectivity between their business units and geographical regions, and more importantly the contributions and the challenges and opportunities in each of the core business functions such as sales, services, operations, R&D, as well as the support functions.
Teams’ participants were mixed across functions, business units and geography with the simulation focused on enabling participants to understand the ‘what, why and how’ of the client’s business, skilled facilitation helped to embed a thorough understanding of what was driving value throughout the business, and how that value is recognised by investors.
At a subsequent strategic event we built on this foundation with drama-based workshops, using actor role-players, to enable business leaders work the core behaviours that were seen as paramount for collaboration and continued business success. After this assignment the client said that the “planning and execution by Morgan Clarke was exemplary” and that our team was “professional, knowledgeable and exceptionally astute in identifying our business challenges, linking these to the core behaviours, and then translating it into learning at the workshop.”
