The Corporate Social Responsibility Simulation

Every organization today is facing challenges of managing and distributing a knowledge base that will meet the needs of tomorrow. Coordinated communications and persistent exploration of competencies bring new insight and spark innovation. Our simulation combined with proven coaching techniques is the best tool for doing in-house sessions with senior managers and staff for exploring and developing responsible business projects, programs and innovation.

Business is the most integrated form of organization working with communities today. Along with other institutions such as education, government, and civic, business is in the best place to create new opportunities. With the greatest potential for growth, the social innovation and responsibility sector can tap new markets, secure stakeholder relationships, and attract talent and revenue from a valuable customer base.


Why it works? It’s different! By using our simulation, in-house representatives or consultants have a powerful tool that is both stimulating and thoughtful. Built on proven experience, this tool will guide you to question, think, explain, and strategize, allowing for a constructive forum to make and correct false assumptions, find where lack of expertise exists, and allow for errors while discovering opportunities before engaging in a project charter. It may be used as many times as you like, with groups ranging from 6-16 people or can be customized by the facilitator to meet the needs of the team.


This simulation specifically addresses planning skills while building understanding of balancing consideration for economic, social and environmental progress. It is turn based yet allows for much interaction and dialogue with other teams. The goal is to meet the planning and project objectives you have set out for the team before game play. During game play you will use budgeting, planning, and negotiation skills before using the second board.


How the Simulation Works


The challenge board is used to make the links between the plans the team made previously and the investment acquired. All of the investments are favored economically, socially or environmentally. Chips are used to maintain the portfolio. As investments are acquired and returns on investments are made, the chips will adjust according to the porThe Corporate Social Responsibility Simulationtfolio of
investments indicating a balanced portfolio.

The game is based on real-world experience, planning skills and actual investment types. It was made for and by real management consultants and change specialists who want a tool to enhance information and training sessions.

10 Reasons for Using This Simulation for Learning and Development

    1. Learning becomes enjoyable, challenging and stimulating
    2. It will enable the participants to quickly realize their strengths and weaknesses in a relatively safe environment
    3. It will enable the transfer of theory into practice
    4. It will enable the participants to see and experience the gap between what they think they believe and what their behaviour demonstrates they believe
    5. The simulation encourage participants to take risks and experiment with new behaviour
    6. Participants often know more than they think they know. This simulation will help participants to discover the underlying principles that make them competent
    7. The simulation will stimulate participants to ask more penetrating questions, about themselves, their colleagues and their organization, than a more formal learning process would trigger
    8. It will produce more powerful insights than were planned for the learning experience
    9. It will enable your people to learn by doing
    10. This simulation is FUN.
