The difference between success and failure in business is often related to errors of judgement happening at critical points during the opportunity realisation process.
Project benchmarking studies and after action reviews often reveal a pretty consistent picture of flaws leading to underperformance (see the related article on “augmented competitiveness”), a lot of which relate to behavioural issues: experience biases, complacency and subjectivity.
Moving organisations out of their comfort zone, whilst tasking them to create business value generates the right environment and tension to raise the consciousness about these pitfalls and engage them in efficient improvement management.
To tackle this challenge, ALL4ONE consulting has developed the ALL4ONE TROPHY, a serious game simulating the preparation and participation in an offshore sailing race, designed to prevent the most prevalent mistakes resulting in project underperformance.
The simulation exposes the participants to competitive situations and provides keys to address them successfully, using design thinking, lean start-up and team dynamics principles.
Indeed particpating in an offshore sailing race is a team effort by excellence requiring a deep understanding of the end-user experience to produce the machine, which will meet his/her needs to fulfill their race victory objective. It is also an incredibly collaborative undertaking, whose level of integration, focus and effectiveness will drive the outcome.
An offshore racing project concentrates all the factors defining today’s business competitive environment from the need to understand the skipper needs and the sponsors expectations for the boat design to the criticality of defining the adequate race strategy and of making the right improvements in constantly evolving conditions.Creating an immersion into the world of offshore sailing races enables participants to visualise and feel the consequences of a suboptimal value-scope-risks balance on the performance of their boat. They also see the combined effect of design choices and team effectiveness on the value realisation during the race.
Transposing the realisation of a business opportunity in the usually unfamiliar context of offshore sailing races acts as an instant revelator of the causes of inefficiency at these critical points and enables to address the mindsets, attitudes and behaviours leading to them.
This one-day training session provides participants with a scalable framework to avoid critical project performance errors, compatible with all project methodologies and relevant to all industry sectors.
