The Rocket assessment programme uniquely combines authentic time pressured simulation with assessment and strategy sessions. Over 4 progressive levels participants must run a commercial business and dramatically improve the performance of the business as they make key strategic business decisions and react to external pressures.
Teams of up to fifteen are allocated areas of responsibility across core business functions. Each have different information and unique digital tools which they must understand, process, analyse, manage, share and act upon. They operate cash- flow, ROI, payroll, sales, marketing and production challenges in order to optimise the performance of their company. Participants experience elation, frustration, stress and excitement with the success (or failure) of the enterprise in their hands.
Each level includes a 20 minute review (intro) session, a 30 minute planning session and a 26 minute live action sequence. Every minute of live action, represents 1 week of operating the business; 6 months trade in 26 minutes; or 2 years trade in a matter of hours.
The opportunity for AC’s (Assessment Centre’s) is the unique ability to assess individuals in multiple situations. Those range from action and reaction in stressful situations to strategic planning in an entirely business context. Although a group activity, there is no ability to hide or be distracted in this hugely immersive environment.
