Rocket Remote is an award-winning facilitated training game for business. It drives remote-working productivity, cements teams and builds leadership skills. Don't just teach your employees, let them learn by doing.
Your team will need to collaborate to transform a failing business in a simulation where week of trading happens in just a minute. Will they communicate effectively? Will they fix the broken business model? Or will they overt-trade and go bust?
Rocket teaches commercial acumen, process optimisation, leadership, communication, team-building and soft skills like empathy and listening. Facilitators ensure that players enjoy their half-day and take away the right lessons.
Corporate players of Rocket include Lloyds Banking Group, Highland Spring, Cala Homes, Facilicom and Barclays Bank.
Cost-effective : No travel time or cost and no location hire
Opens up communication : Encourages players to think about communication channels and reach out - even more important in lock-down.
Challenges Isolation : Not another solo mandatory online training.
Impactful : Memorable, learn by doing. Builds the teams's self-knowledge.
Meaningful Start : Ideal for programme initiation, forming new teams and refreshing existing ones.
Commercial Awareness : Gives the team an end-to-end perspective on the commercial aspects of running any business.
New work paradigm : Have we really understood remote working at scale? This game emphasises the challenge of process improvement and alignment in a remote model.
Big Changes Ahead : Businesses of all shapes and sizes will need to transform themselves. This game sets the scene for transformation - the commercial imperative, leadership, communication and taking ownership of the outcome.
Old team-building impractical : Social distancing, self-isolation and shielding will make it very difficult to create a meaningful and well-attended physical meeting.
Maximum Flexibility : Rocket remote needs five to ten players but they can be anywhere, last-minute cancellations are not critical and learning topics can easily be tailored.
Because it's fun : Lock-down has taken the fun out of work. The social side of the workplace has been lost because online conversations tend to be transactional. Good employers need to redress the balance.
Learn by doing : Experiential learning. Try it out, reflect on how it went and try again. Just like learning to cook.
Journey of Discovery : Teams go on the journey from a chaotic panic to a structured process and finally a well-run, high-performing team focusing on continuous improvement.
Fun and exciting : Not another solo mandatory online training. This is challenging and addictive.
Collaborative : Ideal for programme initiation, forming new teams and refreshing existing ones.
A new agenda : Opens up a conversation about doing things differently and amending the team's strategy for the times we live in.
No Corporate IT : The game is played online. There is a pdf manual and two team speadsheets which can be hosted publicly or in your environment.
Use your tools : Businesses are encouraged to use the communication tools the players know best - Zoom, Teams, WhatsApp, Slack...up to you.
Scalable : Game play is typically 5-10 players with a facilitator. We are able to train your own facilitators.
Versatile : Rocket teaches commercial acumen, process optimisation, leadership, communication, team-building and soft skills like empathy and listening. Facilitators can adjust the balance as well as making the game harder or easier.
Timing : A typical session lasts 4 hours, allowing for initiation, rest breaks, game play, reflections and wrap up. Players operate their simulated business for 15 minutes at a time, incorporating their improvements before the next period.
