Professional Business Simulations, or serious games, are interactive workshops in which teams of employees work on challenging issues within a simulated environment. The environment can be the same or a totally different context to the 'normal' working environment. In a simulation each participant will play a role and has specific tasks, responsibilities and authority.

The "Apollo 13 – an ITSM case experience™" simulation game is an intense, one-day training in which ITIL concepts and processes are experienced through the use of an interactive game.

In this training, real life situations taken from the Apollo 13 mission are simulated. You will work in a team, playing the roles of the Mission Control Center in Houston. Your mission: bring the crippled spacecraft and its crew safely home. By doing so, you and your colleagues will learn and experience all the benefits of ITIL best practice solutions.

By investigating the Apollo 13 case, attendees will experience how ITIL processes have been used in other environments. By the end of the workshop, participants will understand:

  • The interdependency of processes
  • The processes' impact on business continuity
  • What it takes to make a process “work”
  • How good designs can improve the performance of the service department
  • How to design and apply processes aimed at realizing a set of Service Level Agreements
  • How to improve working processes by designing and implementing as a team
  • The importance of communication and teamwork

Apollo 13 - an ITSM case experience™ Business Simulation

The Phoenix Project simulation game is an intense, one-day training in which DevOps concepts and approach are experienced through the use of an interactive game.

The Phoenix Project

We all know the typical IT behaviors and complains about developers
throwing seemingly untested solutions over the wall into production and leaving operations to pick up the pieces. On the other hand, we hear development complaining about the barriers put up by operations that delay deployment, or workload demands placed on developers from IT Operations like small updates, fixing issues and applications not working. The increasing penetration of IT into all areas of the business and the desire for ever more and ever faster customer facing solutions is compounding the issues even more. As a result, the workload on development and IT Operations is growing, workflows are stuck and, IT Projects are failing, business executives are angry and frustrated, seeing lost business opportunities and risks to business operations.

Gene Kim, Kevin Behr and George Spafford wrote an excellent novel
“The Phoenix Project” about an organization facing these challenges and how the applied DevOps principles to realize significant improvements and business value.

This simulation is built around this ground breaking book and let you experience the dynamics of the book.

The Phoenix Project

The Phoenix Project – DevOps Business Simulation

Jest to dynamiczna symulacja biznesowa, która przenosi grupę uczestników do czasów starożytnego Egiptu.

Zadaniem zespołu jest stworzenie organizacji projektowej, która zbuduje sławne Piramidy Cheops'a. Podczas jednodniowej sesji grupa będzie zmagała się z wieloma wyzwaniami starożytnych Egipcjan np. z wylewami Nilu, wojnami, czy też niespodziewaną zmianą woli rządzącego Faraona. Celem do realizacji dla zespołu jest ukończenie projektu w danym czasie, zakresie, budżecie i w planowanej jakości.

Why Challenge of Egipt?

Between 60 - 80% of projects fail to realize the required results. Despite the enormous amount of PM certificates in PMI or Prince2. This is generally not because of the lack of education or theory, but lack of understanding of how to translate theory into practice, or the lack of the right behaviors within the team. If you want to learn how to translate theory into practice, assess your project behavior and processes, and identify how to improve your project management performance, this simulation can help.
