Storyline

FocusU in aFocusU, in association with Knolskape, brings the Build Your Business Simulation which is designed to help participants understand and practice business acumen and entrepreneurship capabilities.

Within the simulation, participants assume the role of the company’s CEO, responsible for all the business decisions – pricing, production, quality, advertising, employee morale and ensuring the successful launch of a new venture. The simulation allows participants to read financial documents, understand the interdependency between functions, taking risks, and the importance of all the functions working together for the business to thrive and report high profits.

By enabling participants to experience and work through such challenges which are as close to real life as possible, the simulation analytics and debrief sessions (optional) by the facilitators help participants in deriving great insight into the skill of business acumen.

The simulation throws up useful analytics for individual participants that includes:

  • Net Profit
  • R&D Cost
  • Market Share
  • Employee Utilization
  • Opportunity Lost
  • Inventory

The simulation addresses generic challenges encountered at the workplace. The customisation to the specific cohort as per their industry / company situation is done by the Facilitator running the session.

Do download the brochure Above. While this will give you an overall workshop structure, our learning designers will still need to talk with you to customize the workshop to your context.

For each workshop, we can help you with three different teasers you can customize and share periodically with participants to build excitement and get traction.

Simulations can be delivered in virtual or in-person mode. This simulation cannot be delivered asynchronously, since the learning happens from the group interactions.

    It forced me to learn and grow in spite of dealing with my busy schedule of juggling between work and a new-born back at home. You helped me understand new concepts in merely 15-30 mins ; and challenged me to think through different issues I should deal with. I should get them sorted mentally in my mind first than in real life. Thank you for helping me grow my knowledge.

    It’s not about the content or activities. Those can be replicated by others. It’s what the FocusU team does with them which makes the experience so special.

Would say this is easily one of the best sessions I would have attended in a long time – the mix of fun and messaging was perfect and can easily notice the change in attitudes on the floor. Well done, pls. convey my kudos to the rest of the team as well.

    The dance session was really awesome. We learned some great and interesting dance steps with expressions. The best part is that we all were dancing virtually but still we were able to match our steps with the music. It was really engaging and we all had so much fun. Thank you so much.
