The power of "serious gaming"

We developed this pricing game based on serious gaming principles to make learning really effective.
  • Serious games enable participants to learn in an interactive environment as close as possible to the real world.Our learning consultants adapt the gaming environment, making it possible to practice and compete within a close-to-your-reality world.    Retaining information and applying what is learned will be quickly translated.That’s what a ‘serious’ game is about.

  • Serious games are about action learning, which makes learning more effective

  • Serious games are about peer learning, which enhances team best practice sharing

  • The gaming spirit makes experimenting- in a safe environment which is close to their reality - fun (and yes, we all want to win) !

  • A last important advantage, for those responsible for the learning program, is that you constantly monitor the effectiveness of the learning objectives.

The Learning Flow

  2. Each learning objective is translated into a ‘theme’

Phase 1 :
Each ‘
theme’ is first introduced by a theory infusion (know-how sharing)

  1. Concepts/tools/examples are shared before the ‘gaming’ starts.

Phase 2 :
Game briefing & team decisions

  1. Teams receive additional documentation and insights on the specific ‘market environment’

  2. Teams receive the commercial goals to define their price strategy/policy

Phase 3 :
Teams set their prices, discount schemes, etc

Phase 4 :
Game round and debriefing

  1. One of the teams explains to the other groups the rationale of their decisions and the impact…
