Measuring management skills through an interesting game!
UTOPIA©: USABLE FOR INDIVIDUALS AND TEAMS
The Utopia© business game enables the assessment of problem-solving and decision-making skills in complex situations for individuals and for teams. Utopia© is fun and has a high level of acceptance among participants. The business game was tested by thousands of candidates across the world (managers, executives...) and was validated by several statistical studies.
Utopia© can be used on an individual level in the assessment of a candidate, but can also be a great game during a teambuilding event (team assessment).
During a team activity, it is important to see how participants cooperate and opt for a certain direction. Who takes the lead, who follows? Are decisions made easily, are risks taken or avoided?
WHAT UTOPIA© IS ABOUT
Participants rule over a fictitious island for 15 months, individual or in a group. The task: balancing 3 important cornerstones (finances, environment and standard of living) and bringing these to an acceptable level in case of setbacks.
Participants are faced with complicated problems and objectives, but also with moments of crisis that require an adaptation of strategy. The simulation takes 85 minutes. During various phases participants get an intermediate state of affairs. This way, they can decide whether or not to adjust the strategy. At the end we measure if the presupposed objectives have been met.
