Simulation-Based Training and Online Gaming in Skill Development

An excellent article in Chief Learning Officer Magazine takes a historical look at the empirical data on the benefits of simulation on learning. I would also recommend one of my favorite recent articles on the role of online gaming on leadership develop. The study was conducted by Seriosity and IBM and confirms what I have long observed in multi-player gaming environments. These games require participants to learn negotiation, risk taking, collaboration, problem-solving and other requisite skills that are also necessary for success in today’s leaders.
