  1. 1. Training Games Experiential Learning
  2. 2. ACTION A company with 15 years of experience applying gaming and LEARNING simulation as experiential learning methodology to the development of systemic competencies. SPECIALIST Training Games started in 1995 with the initial Synergy is our supreme exponent, where all learning objective of developing games and simulations to occurs around the analysis of the evolution and make training not only a more effective experience maturity of a group. but also more entertaining. We still have the capacity to develop new products and to custom-design Since the beginning we have specialised in those courses. areas where games and simulation offer better results than other training methods. In little more than one year, we went from creating Soft Skills: Communication, teamwork, shared games that were complementary to training and leadership, creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit centred on content (1st generation) to nuclear games are without a doubt competencies that are listed in centred on interrelationships from where training many dictionaries. However, their development is conclusions are extracted (2nd generation). After two not about a problem of comprehension, or even years, our level of technological development about being in agreement. They depend on allowed us to produce 3rd generation games. These believing it, and there is nothing better than games are open and fundamentally based on experiencing it. simulators, and their evolution depends on the Systems Thinking: Systems, interrelationships, decisions made by the participants. No pattern or interdependencies, complexity, uncertainty, are a rules are followed, not even a decision protocol. whole set of concepts linked to the global vision. There is only the action framework and an objective. The models explained through simulations are the Synergy is our supreme exponent, where all learning ideal way to understand and internalize that occurs around the analysis of the evolution and perspective of whole. maturity of a group.

  3. 3. The formation of a new team of persons coming from different business areas, and even from other organisations, to take on a far-reaching project resulted in the need to develop a training program that would create a propitious environment for interpersonal knowledge and promote teamwork. But above all, it was necessary to clearly show the challenges and problems that we faced, which is the most novel aspect with respect to a training action. The experience with the Equilibrium Cone was simultaneously gratifying and successful, given that it combined fun aspects (games and simulators) and operational aspects (specific work projects) that satisfied the objectives of both cohesion and efficiency, respectively.” Ricardo Alonso Fernández Director of Corporate Banking Global Banking & Markets Banco Santander Group
  4. 4. SIMULATION & GAMING Participants retain as much as 75% of the information obtained, because they «listen, see, ask and act» Simulation and games, used as learning devices, facilitate the gathering of knowledge in a variety of scientific disciplines, making complex realities easier to understand and combining inter-related focuses. They help understand dynamic contexts and are thus ideal for the acquisition of systematic skills. Experimentation through games and simulation enables knowledge to be integrated and automated and is particularly useful when applied to improving abilities and even in transforming attitudes, something difficult to attain using other methods. The game plays upon the more excitable nature of the participant and uses it as a training tool. The game influences attitudes, improves relationships, encourages cohesion and team spirit and generates link networks among the participants, creating affective bonds between The experiential learning cycle of Kurt Z. Lewin them. Field Theory in Social Sciences. New York: Harper & Row, 1951 The result is a process of learning, motivation and integration, far more efficient than with traditional training methods. For the same reason, play can also be useful, on occasions, in overcoming the self-induced block out produced by the fear that certain training situations bring out in us. Training Games 2
  5. 5. OUR ESPECIALIZATION Training Games’ development model is structured around two dimensions: Efficiency and Cohesion. All Custom courses research and the standardisation process are directed Unilever: Selling Out at delving into our areas of specialisation and at LU: Merchandising developing the related competencies. Lafarge: Clienting The closer we are to the axis of cohesion, the greater Angelini: Coaching the emphasis placed on relational aspects, and Endesa: Sales techniques therefore the selected methodology is also somewhat more play-oriented. Custom simulations Conversely, when we approach the efficiency axis, training actions become more applicable. The Danone: Milk Management methodology continues to be play-oriented, but on Inditex: Shop Management this occasion the topics in question pertain to the Frigo: Selling Out company itself and are normally based on real or Generalitat: Entrepreneurship immediately applicable topics.

  6. 6. I met Ricardo Zamora a few years ago. He presented a teamwork project to us that we were going to love. The truth is that, due to being novel and atypical, I have to confess, when the presentation was over my initial idea was to forget about it. However, we tossed the idea around and decided to send an elite group to take the training. It was a huge success, a total innovation within our training system, and the most wonderful thing is that the team had a good time and acknowledged having learned about subjects as important as communication, teamwork, work systems, etc. Over the last three years, our entire team of managers and middle managers has gone through this training, with excellent results when applying the acquired knowledge in their usual jobs.

  8. 8. Participating in SYNERGY was an intellectual challenge for me due to the different way of facing a known subject. The idea of breaking with schemes and not being anchored in traditional ones is perfectly clear. Learning to dominate my natural leadership in order to adapt it to good teamwork was another good practice. Overall, an intense and very recommendable experience for people who want to learn different methodologies. Jordi Ballesté Chief Executive Officer Angelini Group
  9. 9. RICARDO ZAMORA 15 years of experience on teamwork and collaboration Ricardo Zamora is Bachelor of Science in Business and a Masters in Business Management from ESADE, one of the top 10 European and International Business Schools (see at He is Associate in the Advanced Management Program at ESADE Executive Education as well as other School of Business and at some Latin American Universities.

The creator of simulators such as Salesmanship, Carterbanc and Synergy, as well as games such as Teaching Cards, Fork, The 5 phases of the sale and Linker. Zamora has specialized in the development of systemic competences and applies his programs in large corporations with complex interrelationships. He is the creator of Synergy, an attended seminar that, for two days, submerges the participants in a situation of growing complexity, uncertainty and change. Using the “behavior simulator” developed by Zamora, Synergy covers a dual analysis of complementary aspects –personal and business- when promoting a culture of distributed leadership and teamwork at organizations. Based on the management behaviours showed in Synergy that systematically appears when facing uncertain and complex environments, he has developed Cooplexity (cooperation under complexity), a very robust and academically consistent model. He has published a book of the same name with the results of a 5 years research on the issue. Large and multinational companies such as Dannon, Heineken, Unilever, HP, Arbora & Ausonia (Procter), Lafarge or Santander Banking Group are some of Zamora’s customers. 5 Training Games
