Covid-19 Update

We are trying to do everything we can to make sure our employees and our customers can get through this period as smoothly as possible.

We have been focusing our attention in recent weeks towards how we can enable our clients to continue to deliver critical training to their people in the current circumstances.

These are unprecedented times.

 

Many businesses and people find themselves in very unfortunate circumstances.

 

Our team is working from home. All have access to email and mobile devices, so are contactable as normal.

 

We are trying to do everything we can to make sure our employees and our customers can get through this period as smoothly as possible.

 

Why constraints are good for innovation

 

Perhaps there are glimpses of good things to come.  

 

As a training business, we are of course impacted. But we are lucky to have a team of dedicated people who are super passionate about our products, and about helping our customers.  

 

Constraints can act like a pressure cooker for innovation.

 

We have been focusing our attention in recent weeks towards how we can enable our clients to continue to deliver critical training to their people in the current circumstances.

 

We have always prided ourselves on making the complex simple, and on delivering experiences to people that are less talking, and more doing. 

 

 We think that, with help from our clients, we can create amazing virtual or digital learning experiences.   And we've already started.

 

Here is a list of the simulations we can deliver virtually or digitally:  

 

1. Decision Maker - totally relevant for the Covid-19 context, a digital tool which simulates real management and leadership problems, forcing participants to make strategically urgent decisions under extreme pressure.

 

2. A Team in Action - this proven program promotes collaboration and cross-functional communication within virtual teams, using the context of taking a new product to market.

 

3. Innovators Dilemma - another one perfect for "the new reality", this simulation introduces managers to the world of digital innovation by allowing teams to make launch decisions on new digital products.

 

4. Pricing for Profit - this fast paced virtual simulation is sales focused, getting your teams to get up to speed on differentiation, data-led pricing and how to create value in your business.

 

 

Please contact yasmin.elgen@profitability.com if you would like to know more about how to get involved in testing or piloting these virtual simulations in your business.
