What is Launch?
Through gameplay, participants are immersed in a fast-paced environment with limited resources. In LAUNCH, success is determined by your crew’s ability to apply logic, deductive reasoning, resource management and risk assessment to make critical decisions.
Are you ready to LAUNCH your next meeting? Let us help! LAUNCH is offered across a variety of deployment options. From standalone product purchases, to full service strategic planning and consulting, LAUNCH is a tool engineered to extract learnings and valuable insights critical to corporate planning and strategy.
How does Launch work?
Through the guise of a game, participants act as the stranded flight crew of a spaceship about to enter an ambiguous and dangerous scenario. Team members have limited resources and time, and must work together to apply logic, deductive reasoning, resource management and risk assessment in order to make mission-critical decisions.
Upon completing the exercise, participants will be able to draw parallels between the game scenario and real-life strategic planning experiences. At minimum, the experience will challenge team members to plan carefully and think critically; at most the exercise can inspire and challenge participants to approach future strategic planning sessions with both enthusiasm and creativity.Watch Video
