Experiential simulations

Experiential simulations are interactive and immersive learning experiences where participants can experience real-world business scenarios to develop an understanding of industry best practices and their application. This allows participants to bring their own knowledge and experience and provide the opportunity to test their perceptions and responses, while gaining new knowledge and experience to experiment with and test in a safe environment.

The value

Experiential Simulations

Through the use of experiential simulations, Simplayfi create game changing experiences that are used as a key component of cultural change programs that help to drive business transformation, particularly in large and complex global enterprises.

Experiential simulations can also be used as part of other change management transformation tactics and strategies to help raise awareness, increase engagement, enhance knowledge retention, and to drive adoption in a new, engaging, and innovative way.

Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience.

Experiential Learning Simulations in Business

Experiential Simulations have gained popularity as business tools for several reasons


Simulations offer an immersive, real-world-like participant experience for risk-free skill application.

Accelerated Learning

Simulations promote rapid, effective learning, outperforming traditional methods like student lectures or e-learning.


Simulations are adaptable, meeting specific organizational needs and addressing unique business challenges.

Measurable Outcomes

Simulations deliver objective performance data, facilitating easy evaluation of transformation initiatives.

Experiential Learning Simulation Benefits

An experiential learning simulation offers numerous benefits to businesses and their employees, including

Participants are more likely to remember what they’ve learned in a simulation, as the experience encourages active learning and problem-solving. This leads to long-term retention of knowledge and improved performance on the job.

As learners engage with various challenges and opportunities in experiential settings, they develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making abilities. These essential skills not only enhance an individual’s performance but also contribute to their overall growth as competent professionals. Thus, experiential learning plays a vital role in nurturing well-rounded individuals who can adapt to different situations and tackle complex tasks effectively.

Experiential learning activities often involve group projects or simulations that require participants to collaborate and solve problems together. This hands-on approach encourages individuals to:

  • Develop strong communication skills
  • Listen actively and empathetically
  • Express ideas clearly and concisely
  • Hone their problem-solving abilities
  • Identify issues collectively
  • Devise solutions as a team

Experiential simulations help foster collaboration amongst peers by encouraging group work on projects or tasks that require collective effort. Students learn how to work together towards common goals by sharing ideas, discussing potential solutions, and building upon each other’s insights. This type of dialogue leads to an increased level of engagement among participants which is beneficial for overall performance.

Immersive simulations increase motivation, job satisfaction, and commitment to learning, reducing turnover

True transformation is complex and hard! Simulations allow participants to experience a relatable, multi-stage journey giving them a 30,000ft view of the entire landscape and to experience how the future state could look and feel.

Simulations facilitate and accelerate acceptance of new processes, technologies, or structures, aiding in organizational change.
