Innovation Island DE1-223-I-M
Innovation Island is an out-of-the-box interactive simulation created to facilitate a practical in-class learning journey for instructors focusing on various strategic and leadership themes, such as leadership intelligence, collaborative innovation, design thinking and scenario planning.
After a plane crash, learners are stranded on a deserted island together with limited resources and an abundance of dangers. Using lessons from the professor himself, survivors must work in groups to develop a prototype that will assist them in confronting at least one particular uncertainty that jeopardizes their survival on this unforgiving island.
This multimedia is unique in that it gives instructors the freedom to focus their session on the themes they choose (e.g. soft skills and leadership intelligence).
The activity is also heavily based on collaboration and teamwork, encouraging learners to spend the majority of their time putting into practice the takeaways provided by the instructors in their class in a highly constructive way. Also, being put in a fictitious situation not typically used in higher-education/continuing-education settings, participants are 1) all able to connect and collaborate on a goal, regardless of their professional backgrounds, and 2) forced to think outside the box critically.
This simulation can be used effectively in MBA, MIB and M.Sc.; Global or Executive programs at any level, particularly in courses focusing on: innovation, leadership, strategy, strategy execution, complexity management and/or team dynamicsAcademic Area:Strategy | Innovation
