Simulation Description

Silega ActivatorTM is a business simulation that models one year of change initiatives. Participants compete to maximise productivity during tough times. Their results are measured by people’s perception, stakeholders’ opinion and market reaction.

As the simulation progresses, they need to study the forces that cause the change, define what is their impact on productivity and how to deal with emotional reactions and behaviours that block productivity.

Teams have to work on establishing an action plan for change that involves all levels in an organisation. This programme provides participants with a methodology that will help them apply the key findings in their personal and professional life.

This is a table-mat simulation that puts participants into challenging assignment – to manage a change (restructuring) project within a company. They have to manage perceptions of all levels of the organisation (sell value to stake holders, people that will face the change and the impact this will have on them). They also have to manage the cost of the change initiative and the deadlines.

This is more of a strategic simulation, but it can be adapted to fit all levels of the organisation.
