ITIL Simulations (PoleStar IT Service Management)
Simulations are an effective form of experiential learning. They involve putting people into a realistic simulated environment to allow them to experience complex situations or best practices, while creating breakthrough understanding of benefits and consequences.

Normally delivered over a number of ‘rounds’, the PoleStar simulation uses gaming dynamics to mirror the real world interaction between IT and the business, from both a strategic and operational perspective. The iterative nature of the ‘rounds’ is based around the experiential learning cycle theories of David Kolb. In addition, the experience continues between rounds through defined service transition phases requiring the participants’ engagement in planning for strategic and operational continuous service improvements. 

THE BENEFITS of this Simulation include:

  • Creates rapid familiarization with IT Service & Operations Management / ITIL terminologies, tools and processes.
  • Breaks down silos, energizing and motivating staff towards successful change.
  • Provides realization of the contribution that enterprise IT makes to business success.
  • Creates commitment to IT Service & Operations Management related improvement programs.
  • Provides a fast and cost effective alternative to traditional training.
 

Course Length:  1/2 day
Time:  Morning or afternoon sessions (onsite only)
Who:  This course is designed for ~ 15 - 20 team members and is a highly participative face-to-face experiential learning workshop designed to drive change and create breakthrough understanding of the benefits of IT Service & Operations tools and best practices.

Bringing to life the behavioural and business issues faced by IT organizations today.  This simulation event offers an unparalleled level of interactivity to participants while creating a fun, and highly memorable, shared experience for all.

Not only did everyone have a great time, but it really helped bridge the gap between many of our teams understanding of ITIL and real-world implications to their roles and others in the company.
