Commercial Awareness Training
Using business simulations to improve financial awareness and performance throughout the organisation
Understanding the commercial consequences of operational decisions
Sound business intelligence delivers improved financial performance and better organisational leadership.
IDG Business simulations provide commercial awareness in a way that can be understood by all. Intensive, highly effective experiential learning creates a deep sense of ownership, motivating action back in the workplace.
We work with you to identify gaps in your organisational capability. Appropriate simulations are then designed to address the identified development need.
“There is no doubt that the IDG Business Simulation, designed specifically for our business, delivers an exceptional experience. Highly engaging, very relevant and expertly delivered. As well as the obvious commercial mind-set that the programme engenders, we have found that the networking and team building opportunities provided by the simulation have also proved invaluable to the organisation. We are looking forward to working with IDG again this year.”
Real world business problems faced in a safe environment
IDG’s business simulations are typically board games customised to the client and industry. Participants work in teams to solve real life business problems in a highly intensive compressed timescale.
Within minutes, they are wrestling with risks, issues and decisions they must make. Competition among teams drives engagement, invention and discovery. Decisions have financial consequences and lessons must be learned.
Our team are onsite to manage the simulation, guide the teams, and provide qualified feedback and analysis. By the end, participants have an informed appreciation of strategic alignment, commercial viability and the holistic consequences of their work. Simulations are particularly effective in assisting with the following scenarios:
Implementing a new strategy
Driving innovative thinking
Improving commercial awareness
Embedding culture change
