What is ROCKET?

The ROCKET simulation is used to train groups of individuals to understand the context of how an organisation works and how to optimize it.

Participants find the experience engaging, fun and empowering.

This is not traditional training – ROCKET uses cutting edge science to enable people to learn for themselves.

And it’s award-winning: We won the International Business Learning Games Competition in 2019.

How ROCKET works

Teams of players (minimum 6, maximum 15) are brought together and split into the typical roles you would see in most businesses:

MARKETING, SALES, DIRECTOR/CEO, DELIVERY, FINANCE.

At the beginning of a session, the participants are given approximately 30 minutes to ‘onboard’ so they know the basics of running the fully simulated business.

Then, through cycles of learning (David Kolb – experiential learning cycles) – they will play the game and reflect on what they should do to make things better.

Only… we do 26 weeks of trade in 26 minutes.

FAST. FURIOUS. FUN.

Are you up for the challenge?

Who is ROCKET for?

ROCKET is for teams and groups of people who want an exciting experience to run a complete business in this fast-paced business simulation scenario.

The game brings individuals together and so it is perfect for organizations to establish great teamwork, drive core business productivity, build commercial awareness, and achieve interpersonal empathy and trust.

It was like a mini-MBA in a day!

Playing the game made me understand the difficulties and decisions our clients have to make every day.

Testimonials

Alex Butcher

There were lots of examples of useful activities and actions taking place... It was good to see people unfamiliar with the sales process, navigate the complexities of marketing and sales alike. Even the realisation that sales and marketing are different concerns with aligned goals but separate skill-sets was invaluable.

No longer will death by powerpoint suffice, setting time aside, mixing with your colleagues and interacting is key to embedding the learning down.

David Crawley

The great thing about ROCKET-remote is that it is helping our clients answer a number of their most pressing remote working challenges now. Right Now. With classroom, boardroom and training room based delivery on hold for the foreseeable future, we are excited to be able to offer a meaningful and realistic, remotely delivered business training proposition in these disruptive times.

It was incredibly fast-paced, which was great. It keeps you on your toes. It was completely interactive. It definitely pushed me, personally, outside of my comfort zone which I think a lot of people would benefit from.

The team learned that we need to stop accepting legacy rules and ways of working. If we’re going to be successful we need to be prepared to challenge convention.

Playing ROCKET has taken us from just having a shouting match to actually setting tasks and (almost!) sticking to them. This made me realise how hard it is to balance a group of people.

Clients are queuing out the door to try ROCKET-remote. We've found that it largely sells itself and is truly a product for these times. It is supremely adaptable and can be tailored to fit practically any number of client needs. I can't recommend it highly enough and the clients who have tried it, love it!

David Arneil

The game was great fun, and it couldn't have come along at a better time. The new reality in which we find ourselves presents us with new challenges and Rocket helps highlight the opportunities we have to meet these challenges, become more efficient and improve as a team.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Rocket-remote demo. It really did feel like a mini-MBA, as I walked away with a comprehensive understanding of how a business is run and how various departments come together to make it a success. I also learned a lot about remote working; a group of strangers transformed into a great team by the end of it, almost as if we had been working together for months before.

It is an excellent product: thought provoking, fostering greater collaboration, process improvement and a better understanding of the big picture, and it’s FUN!

Mark Lawson

This is a unique opportunity to experiment and implement new business strategies within an immersive, fun and safe simulated business environment that revealed how a successful business should be run. ROCKET will bring great value to teams in commercial organisations.

ROCKET has provided invaluable insights and reflections into how VWS is run, giving my team the confidence to implement new ideas and strategies in the business almost immediately, in stark contrast to my past failed attempts to engage and empower them.
