Running a Simulation

From 3 to 16 per table

Group sizes are between 1 (limited learning) to 4 per team, with up to 4 teams per table. Each table can hold from 3 to 16 people. The recommended size is 3-4 groups of 3 people per group.

A session can have anywhere from one table to 30+ tables, depending on the group size, materials, and available space.

From 3 hours to 3+ days

The simulations can be designed around 1/2 day, 1-day, 2-day or 3-day workshop programs, depending on the depth of learning and impact.

The 1-day format is common. Some faculty members are looking into even longer programs, even extending across multiple academic courses in a single semester.

Facilitator Setup

Each group should have one table facilitator. This can be faculty or students. For multiple groups, students can manage each table, with the faculty member as Master Facilitator.

For first-time facilitators, basic learning and training (offline or online) are suggested.

Strategy Tools @FHV Voralberg, Graduate-level Entrepreneurship, Austria

“For the past year, I have been searching for a simulation relevant to the Berkley Method of Entrepreneurship, experiential learning and building a startup from scratch.

We ran our simulation with 19 students divided into 2 groups, each of us running one board. The students, the school and I were all suitably impressed with Chris and the simulation. I look forward to running a few more sessions under my belt and bringing this new modality of learning to the US.”

Participant Feedback

I will not forget this experience for the next decade.

My brain is fried.

Now I feel comfortable negotiating with investors.

I wish we had this much earlier in the MBA Program.

The emotional engagement, the energy, is a big part of the learning design.

I love this.

Every simulation feels like two Master’s Programs.
