The CEO: “We had to take a decision. We felt responsible“.
The Board of Directors: “We thought we were in for a conflict, that they would protest“.
The Production Managers: “We missed a sense of unity“.
The Production Operatives: “We felt disregarded. We came together and discussed how to put up resistance“.
’30 Days’ is a simulation game which transports the players to the final month of an economic slowdown. They are in charge of a small shipyard and their task is to survive the final 30 days of the difficult situation. A positive financial result at the end of the month will mean that the aim has been achieved. A negative result will portend bankruptcy.
At a moment as difficult as this, no simple solutions or quick compromises will do. There are a few possible options: e.g. lay-offs, employment structure modification or production restructuring. One thing is certain – changes are inevitable.
Time is pressing – 30 days in 30 minutes. It is astonishing how much can be learnt about change management in such a short time.
The game will enable you and your group to identify the sources of employees’ resistance to change, as well as the key determinants of successful change implementation.
