Most managers would like to do a better job at ensuring employee satisfaction. They strive towards becoming better leaders, but sometimes, they need help. They need the opportunity to learn how to collaborate more effectively, redesign work processes, and manage internal and external change. Our award-winning change management simulation allows groups of employees to learn the value of redesigning how they work, internalize those insights and bring them back to their jobs. Plus, Paper Planes Inc. provides insights on how an organization or team can prepare for changes within their organizations. Participants play the roles of employees in an aircraft manufacturing company — assembler, inspector, tester and so forth. Teams have an opportunity to sell as many planes as they can make that meet specific visual and performance quality standards defined by the customer and also have the opportunity to redesign the process.
