WorldGAMES creates fun, effective and lasting training:
. Our games are powerful metaphors for what happens in the workplace. They are fun, mostly competitive, have rules and winners. As children we learn best through playing games and as adults they are just as effective. Click on Products for information about our great business training games packs, games summaries or read about how to use experiential games in training.
Exercises are non competitive learning activities that lead participants to a desired outcome. Like games they are fun, active and effective learning tools. Unlike games, there are no set rules and many of them can be played alone. Games and exercises used in conjunction with each other form a very powerful learning combination.

While games are metaphors, rather than mirrors of the workplace, simulations parallel real life. They are like special filters that compact and enhance the action, raising the key points clear of the surrounding detail so that they can be more clearly understood and actioned. Simulations are used to illustrate the differences that make the difference.

"The transfer of the learning from the training room to the job has been truly remarkable"
Experiential Programs are a combination of games, exercises, simulations and tools packaged to achieve a specific learning outcome. There are currently 39 different off-the-shelf programs available covering a broad range of the “soft skills” (non-technical). They work because they are fun, active, engaging and comprehensive.
"It is possible to speed up the learning process anywhere from five to twenty times."
Games, exercises, simulations, tools and programs come in the following packages:

In one-on-one feedback sessions, we have witnessed a greater than 95% correlation between the way participants behave in a series of experiential activities and the way they behave in the workplace. There is no more powerful way to predict future behaviour that past and current behaviour. Assessment Centres are powerful selection tools and identifiers of team drivers and barriers. Using your key competencies, we help design an assessment process to meet your precise needs and outcomes.
