BigPicture™ Organizational Simulation

BigPicture™ is an outstanding solution for creating an interactive learning environment in meetings or training programs. The simulation effectively addresses collaborating across teams and silos, leading by vision, and flexibility in the face of changing customer expectations.

Scenes from a BigPicture™ Session:

HOW BIGPICTURE™ WORKS

In just a few hours, BigPicture™ engages a group to meet customer requirements in designing, painting, coloring and assembling a collaborative mural, by enlarging small portions of a picture to create a wall-sized picture. Participants’ work roles are turned upside down as they are organized into groups representing work teams, management teams, and customers. Work teams are concerned with issues of interdependencies regarding color, texture, scale, customer needs, cost, and time to market. Managers drive their teams to meet milestones, ship dates and budgets, and to take ownership of the final product. Everyone has what they need to succeed, as long as they focus on the critical objectives and processes that create the BIG picture.

Despite detailed instructions, participants often don’t immediately see what is necessary for success. When teams are redirected to focus on the important needs to accomplish the vision, frustration becomes coordinated action and productivity takes a quantum leap. Participants end the simulation energized and ready to apply these insights in their own work practices.
