applications

client

empathy

If you are in Professional or Financial Services, this is for you. This TRANSFORM Rocket session fuels client-centricity by getting to grips with what running a client business really entails on a day to day basis.

The authentic time pressured simulation includes live action sequences, planning and strategy sessions. Over a number of progressive levels participants parachute into an existing commercial business and are tasked with dramatically improving the performance of their business as they make key strategic business decisions and react to external pressures.

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.

Those who have played TRANSFORM Rocket say they feel as though they have actually run this business and as such have formed better empathy and understanding of the pressures that their clients experience.

Participants natural guarded or siloed approaches greatly diminish because they become so immersed in the activity. They feel the need to master their specific tasks as well as being driven by the group to keep this business operational and successful.

TRANSFORM Rocket is a ‘no-hiding’ group assessment programme. By pitching the participants into the high pressure environment, you are able to observe candidates as they reveal their true personalities and traits.

Assessment

programme

The TRANSFORM 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 organisation 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.

What is TRANSFORM Rocket?

TRANSFORM Rocket is the ultimate interactive business 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, eradicate siloed thinking, leadership development and enhance communication and collaboration. We can deliver the session with your branding, or a completely bespoke white label version, unique to your business.

9-15 team members are allocated roles across different departments. Each department has written information and 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 and 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 and growth. Between each round the team have an opportunity to re-group, reflect and work out how, together, they can work more efficiently in the next level as they are given more opportunities to assess and eradicate problems and to manage expectations. 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 and ultimately steer it out of danger.
