Navigate for success

Every company is involved in change management processes like desired cultural change, organizational change or strategic management. The ‘Change Game’ helps you making management and employees realize that change is often necessary and teaches your employees to embrace change. Strategic concepts like changing circumstances and changing the desired strategy are visualized.

Are your teams capable to handle organizational change? Do they use each other’s knowledge and do they look for opportunities? How do your teams communicate? Are they capable executing their plan and being flexible at the same time? This game is interactive, fun and creative. Participants will learn about the impact of Change Management on their department and how to cope with change.

Being firm but flexible helps to make the right choices
The Change game starts with a news emergency broadcast, an intense storm is being reported. Several countries in the Pacific Ocean are dependent on emergency help. We challenge the teams to build the perfect ship and offer emergency help as soon as possible. We plot a worldmap with coordinates on which the teams will be competing. The challenge is which ship to be the first to reach the island while having collected all help items on the way.

Embracing change helps!
The game starts with composing the ideal ship. The teams make their considerations on the basis of incomplete information. You never know what the future looks like.

Also finding the right route is far from easy. Unexpected weather comes up and the ship needs to adapt to changing circumstances. Do the teams stick to their original plan? Or do they look forward and make the best of it?

The teams are divided in several functions. The captain is responsible for movements on the map, the meteorologist knows all about the latest weather forecast and the stock manager takes care of sufficient oil and food on board. Communication and team work are essential to survive and make this mission successful. All aspects of strategic management are part of this challenging game.

The teams’ maneuverability is being visualized
The ship pins every ‘move’ by means of a ribbon connected to the ship. At the end of the game every team’s maneuvers have been visualized. This reflects the different team behavior. Were the teams able to embrace organizational change? Were the teams able to use each other’s knowledge and opportunities? How was the communication between the teams? Were they able to execute their plan and be more flexible in the meantime? Participants experience in an interactive way what Change Management means for the organization and how to cope with this in an efficient way. Is your team capable of making the change management process successful?
