Business Simulations in St Albans

St Albans is a beautiful city located in Southern Herefordshire which provides a mixture of stunning open countryside and charming, historic venues. St Albans is extremely accessible and offers the perfect combination of urban and rural character for numerous corporate team building activities and event management opportunities.

We take a hypothetical scenario or business process and simulate this through an event experience.

At Maximillion we are continually designing activity-based learning tools into our interventions and think of these facilitated business games and simulation models as exciting tools that reflect and replicate workplace issues and bring learning to life in stimulating and non threatening ways.

We design or select them to offer insights into every level of business process, from the all day - everyday routine interaction of people at work to the complexity of whole systems in operation. Our designs derive from real working environments - what makes them work and what makes them work efficiently. Participants readily relate to the simulation content because what happens in our activities happens at work.

A bespoke approach - simulation model design process

Many of our business simulation model designs originate from a specific customer brief and undergo an iterative development process. Many of our original designs can also be adjusted and repositioned to fit other contexts and circumstances. An insight into how we approach the design brief of a bespoke simulation model is represented below:

Who are they for?

Our experiential team development challenges, business games and simulation models work with individuals, teams and groups from across all organisational and functional levels, e.g. leadership teams, operational teams, project teams, sales teams, as well as multi-disciplinary cross functional teams and groups

Key features

  • Designed & facilitated by expert practitioners
  • Content is aligned to organisational context
  • Designed on the principles of learning through doing  
  • Each one is hands on & experiential - selected and to be interactive and engaging
  • Positioned and debriefed against the organisational context
  • Fun and non-threatening, but stimulating and challenging
  • Last in duration from 30 minutes to half a day
  • Work with groups ranging from 5 to 500

Key benefits

  • Scalable and flexible - many can be adjusted to fit your requirements (small - large group sizes, timings, theme, objective & context)
  • Raise self-generated levels of awareness within participants of the impact that behaviours have on performance and effectiveness
  • Something for everyone. Inclusive activities - playing to the diverse strengths and areas of interest of your participants
  • Development happens when people operate close to what they think are the limitations of their abilities - participants add content, detail and their own specific knowledge and experience.
  • People are at their most receptive when they are enjoying what they are doing - we don't believe that addressing workplace issues means we cannot have fun!
