The concept of integrating fun into learning is quite popular in primary and secondary education, but not exactly at the top of the list in corporate education. Maybe it should be? Take simulation games, for example. In this training method, individuals in an organization’s workforce engage in a collaborative competition that uses tools and experience from their daily professional lives to give them an insight into best practices, enhance teamwork and get an understanding of the direct impact their actions have on the business.
SAP Education has embraced this concept with the SAP ERP Simulation game by Baton Simula¬tions, a classroom-based, competitive business game played in a live SAP environment. In small teams, participants run the full business cycle of a small company, using standard SAP reports and dashboards to make and execute business deci¬sions. The teams operate a manufacturing or distribution company’s entire order-to-cash cycle. Striving to achieve efficiency, effectiveness, and profitability, teams interact with suppliers, customers, and internal groups – all while working within a real SAP solution. The result is a workforce that is more intimately familiar with SAP ERP, can execute transactions with greater speed and accuracy, and has a deeper appreciation for collaboration.
Tap into Delivery Options and Post-event Insights
The game can be delivered as a course conducted by SAP or as a self-service offering via our subscription model. A post-event debriefing is delivered in the course run by SAP (and is strongly encouraged for self-service events) so players can learn from each team’s decisions and results.
Increase Adoption and Productivity
SAP ERP Simulation delivers results for your business by providing a compelling, competitive learning environment that directly reflects SAP software– based processes. By transforming the traditional education process into a dynamic learning experience, the game engages your workforce in a way that acquaints them more intimately with SAP ERP. They learn to execute transactions with greater speed and accuracy and gain a deeper appreciation for collaboration.
Benefits of the game
At the end of the day participants will have
- An insight into how process chains within their own organizations can be improved
- An ability to quickly recognize “information silos” within their own organizations
- An understanding of the positive contribution that change communication and change management can make to improve performance
