Tata Interactive Systems (TIS) and Caterpillar University’s former President, Dave Vance, have collaborated to design and create a simulation - TOPSIM® – Learning Manager - for decision makers in the learning function of an organization. The simulation allows participants to run their organisation’s learning function like a business, making strategic and tactical decisions, affecting the organisation’s training and learning strategies as well as their deployment.

According to TIS’s President, Simulations, Manoj Kutty: “Learning Manager creates a simulated environment where users can make learning decisions and see the benefits and/or repercussions in real time. Participants can map their strategy to the key challenges faced by their organisation, develop a business plan for learning and use decision-making and cost-benefit analysis tools to maximise the impact of learning.”

This day-long Learning Manager workshop, conducted by Dave Vance, is intended mainly for CLOs, training directors, and senior learning professionals. It also helps consultants and HR managers who want to provide better guidance to learning professionals.

Vance said: “The partnership has created a highly engaging simulation. The participants were enthusiastic about refining their business plan to achieve the greatest impact on their organisation and did not want the simulation to end.

“It is a unique simulation which gives professionals an opportunity to practise the key concepts of strategic alignment, programme selection and prioritisation. It even allows cost-benefit analysis.

“The key benefit of instruction combined with simulation is the immediate practise of new skills, providing both the knowledge and the confidence to apply these concepts back in the office.”

“I have received extremely positive feedback from the participants,” Vance added. “Some of them even commented that this was the most intuitive and easy-to-comprehend simulation they had ever played.”

TIS’s Kutty commented, “Managing a corporate university budget is often a challenging assignment and, in today’s difficult business environment with limited resources, it can be even more demanding. We built our simulation to enable training function managers to test out different strategies in a risk free environment to understand and maximise the return on investment of their training budget.

“The multi-player, game-based approach within the simulation will keep the audience engaged. Our partner and facilitator, Dave Vance, is an industry veteran who has run one of the largest corporate universities in the USA with distinction.”

TIS’ business acumen simulations are highly acclaimed and proven solutions for management challenges. These simulations have delivered tangible results at leading organisations and educational institutions around the globe.

TIS’s simulations have improved financial results and return on investment (ROI) by teaching participants to make better investment decisions and then to apply that knowledge in relevant situations. The workshops offer an enhanced understanding of the enterprise-wide consequences of business and learning decisions.

Dave Vance also took part in the Tata Interactive Learning Forum (TLF) towards the end of 2007. At that event, Vance shared his knowledge on making the right training decisions in organisations and conducted the Learning Manager workshop for the attendees.
