is a sophisticated strategic planning tool in the form of
a multimedia role-playing interactive simulation that deals with the future
challenges and opportunities facing your organization. The simulation is
reality based, information intensive, and realistic, while also being easy
to play and fun.
The "normal" FutureGame has three sequential components: The FuturesAudit, the FutureGame simulation, and the Futures Retrospective. (The FutureGame can be used as a stand-alone product, but its impact is deepened, enriched, and extended if used in conjunction with the Futures Audit and Retrospective.)
How it is used
The FutureGame is used for mid- to long-range strategic planning, envisioning realistic future goals, opportunities and challenges, new product development and innovation opportunities, as well as team building in a context of organizationally relevant problem solving.
Who uses it
The FutureGame is designed to be played by senior level executives in groups that range in size from ten to one hundred. Players are on teams that correspond to real world divisions or geographical areas in which the organization is based. They deal with real issues facing the organization in a dynamic fast-paced scenario-driven environment that combines, at various times, structured brainstorming, thoughtful planning processes, presentations of results and plans, competition between teams, and cooperation as a whole organization.
