Learn what makes corporate IT tick

4 online courses to develop common understanding across your organisation

Organisations need a common understanding of terms and ideas if they are to be effective in communication, implementation and operation. Our courses develop that understanding, exploring the depth and breadth of corporate IT and how it fits into your organisation.

Throughout each short course, participants are led on a journey of guided discovery to understand the terms, concepts and context of IT. 

Our unique business games provide the highly detailed framework that enables participants to apply and experience what they learn as they learn it..

Onsite courses available on request

Soft skills

Learning how to express oneself, interact with others and be conscious of time, soft skills empower the other areas on the insight wheel.

Connections

Creating awareness of the larger organisation and your interaction with it. 

Mindset

Changing the way of thinking and acting to become more effective with less stress

Successful transformation is built on a solid, shared foundation

Our knowledge and understanding is built up incrementally over the years, layer by layer. Each layer builds on the one before and shapes the one that follows.

However, our world is changing rapidly and the foundation, on which we have built our current understanding, was laid in a time of different values, technology and methods.

It is time to reset your thinking by revisiting and rebuilding  those earlier foundation layers, bringing new insights and a new deeper level of understanding.

Through a series of modules reinforced by experiential simulations and an approach of guided discovery, Game-changing Insight offers a simple path to reset your thinking. 

The insight wheel

Shared vision with a focus on outcome

All players share the vision of what constitutes success and have the ability to track their progress. In all our games that success is ultimately determined by generating business value, illustrating the contribution of IT to the success of the business. Business value can be extremely difficult to pin down in the real world but many of the mechanisms employed by our simulations are transferable. Business value, its assessment and reporting are key discussion points in our courses.

Holistic mindset

The insight wheel helps you to understand the various aspects of the learning journey. 

It makes it easy to express your training needs and review your results.

Knowledge

Developing a clear and common understanding of all the moving parts.

Understanding the big picture is crucial in successfully defining and implementing a strategy. The nature of our games and the supporting training, teaches this approach - defining, tracking and incorporating all the moving parts that can place your plans at risk 

 

Developing soft skills for more effective teams

Each of our business strategy games provide a wealth of insight and learning experience with every round that's played

Over the course of a game an accelerated example of team development is revealed, assisted through a shared goal and common framework for engagement, delivered through the rules and mechanics of the game.

The nature of the simulations means that there is always a lot to keep in mind to make the right choices driving the need for attention to detail. Some games require players to negotiate with each other to deliver both the best results for themselves and for the whole scenario represented by the game space.

Some players will take the lead in supporting others and helping interpret the available options.

At it's core, each training game requires the participants to effectively convert time into business value. Indeed, the over-arching concept in the games is the idea that everything should lead to maximizing the business value delivered individually and collectively. 

The insights don't stop with the soft skills. Each business strategy game gives a view of a complete slice of corporate IT, replete with "Ah-ha" moments in such diverse areas as:

  • project management

  • software licensing

  • agile mindset

  • Knowledge management

  • business value and cost drivers

  • optimization

  • smart KPI's
