What is the Rocket simulation?

Rocket is the interactive team simulation where the pressures of running a commercial business are experienced in just a few hours. The applications for this accelerated learning include graduate training, recruitment assessment, commercial up-skilling, enhanced relationship management, leadership development and corporate away-days. With the opportunity to be delivered “as-is”, with your branding, or a completely bespoke version, unique to your business.

6-15 team members are allocated roles across different departments. Each department has written information and a unique (although collectively connected) screens which they must assess, analyse, manage, share and act upon in order to optimise the performance of their company. Over the course of a series of progressive levels they manage cash-flow, ROI, payroll, sales & marketing, production challenges and make key business decisions.

The levels take the team from an appreciation of business basics through to the complexity of scaling. Between each round the team have an opportunity to re-group and work out how to work more efficiently in the next level as they are given more opportunities to assess and problems to manage. Decisions are made under pressure and the team must work together, and with focus, to achieve their goals of improving the performance of the business.
