Rocket is the highly adaptable learning platform that teaches commercial skills within any size of organisation.
Being put in a room with 14 others, told you are the new team to take over an existing company, is daunting. You have to deal with a lot of facts, fast. You have to learn and assess how other people work and how you can support the group and influence the outcome.
ROCKET is challenging; you will laugh, question, you will make assumptions, maybe even point the finger of blame. One thing is absolutely certain: you will immediately sense parallels in your own business. You will start seeing how you can apply the elements that make your ROCKET team really successful to your world.
As an SME owner, you need to build the quality in your management team so you can reduce the number of sleepless nights.
If you really want to stretch the legs of your management team, ROCKET Scale will bring them together and equip you to build a world-class organisation.
If you're about to make a large investment in a new company, you'll want to know if the team spending your money has got what it takes. ROCKET Assess will tell you.
ROCKET is a highly flexible platform that can be adapted to deliver large scale change within organisations. You tell us what you need; we'll build it.
Who are your future leaders? Who are your agents of change? Difficult to tell straight out of university.
How did you learn to ride a bike? Did you read a manual or watch your Mum take you through a slide deck… No.
ROCKET business simulation by Games Without Frontiers parachutes you and the assembled team, into an existing business and you run it for the next year’s trade – in a morning.
This short burst of ROCKET will show you what can be achieved in one day. Your emotions will be taken on a rollercoaster. Your head will be bursting with ideas.
There's nothing small about Tim. Appetite for vintage Armagnac aside, he had The Big Idea and is entirely focused on the bigger picture. Less involved in daily GWOF, dropping in now and again to impart wisdom/put a spanner in the works. Tim has plans to make the world better using GWOF as a force for good - in business and particularly education.
Stuart is a GWOF cornerstone. They say opposites attract and he’s a perfect yin to Tim’s yang. He’s a details man, loves a plan and is all things gaming; from design to delivery. He keeps the team ‘amused’ with his large repertoire of truly awful jokes.
Mike’s manner is no-fuss, get stuff done but always having an awareness of his actions. He shows a passion for people, teams and processes and he applies techniques on each to successfully grow organisations.
Fiona, aka 'the grammar police' likens working for GWOF to living on a small Hebridean island (minus the micro gin distillery). A close knit community, multitasking and each wearing varied 'hats' she is currently working on Grants & Awards and Events. Of course, that is likely to change.
The biggest smile and the eternal optimist, Colin is focused on the bigger vision: Ensuring GWOF will impact the world of education and learning. Protective of the team and the impression we make; if you’ve heard of us he’ll have had something to do with it.
Calum is really bad at writing his bio. In the interests of getting this site online soon, we have had to accept this poor meta-attempt. Thankfully he is a bit better at building technology platforms.
Nadine is our bonne-viveuse around town, she’s well connected and likes to chat, often with a glass of red in her hand. When she’s not on duty she can be found roaming the Scottish countryside with her cocker spaniels in tow.
A marketing fledgling and apprentice game facilitator (with fewer bad jokes - thankfully), Alice is an early riser, putting in triathlon training before a day spent applying an expert eye to marketing content design. She seems determined to establish a GWOF lunchtime running club - good luck with that!
Shannon is a newbie to the GWOF community. Currently a student, she’s living the double life. On Planet Earth she’s studying at Edinburgh University, but with Rocket, she’s guiding the community to Outer Space. With the cadets under her wing, she’s managing the ever-growing Rocket community.
GWOF are the only people first, business gaming and technology providers in the world creating team experiences for individuals to better accelerate a deeper understanding of how a business succeeds.
We wake every morning looking for new ways to inspire businesses to achieve greater success. We want to open your team's eyes and help them create a better future for your business.
As a start-up we are keen to hear from you in any capacity; we welcome feedback, reviews, hints and tips or anything you think we could benefit from.
