Business Acumen Reimagined
Wyda game has been designed to allow players with different levels of experience and education to build their business savvy. By understanding the business of your clients, suppliers and competitors you can give yourself the edge in negotiations.
Make your organisation more profitable and resilient by supporting people to make better decisions. Enhance collaboration and communication by creating empathy. The game allows you to experience the realities of cost constraint, revenue growth, risk management and human dynamics, and learn how you can influence it.
Boost innovation and creativity by taking a wider perspective to organisational problem solving and opportunity finding.
Facilitate effective cross-functional flow by increasing understanding of other functions.
Wyda will help you learn five core business pillars in the context of each executive role you experience, as well as how they are connected.
The external environment
Game Based Learning
More than gamification, this is a fully immersive ‘serious game’ to transform a dry, intimidating subject into approachable, fun, engaging and measurable learning that anyone can relate to.
Wyda is designed to catalyse substantial and sustainable learning outcomes and draws on neuropsychology brain-behaviour concepts through every aspect of Wyda.
We all know how much ‘one off’ learning is retained and applied (almost none). Wyda overcomes this at scale with levels progressively unlocked each week for spaced learning. Each builds on previous learning, layers in new concepts with immediate application and generates personalised feedback for real time learning, as well as reflections that encourage connections to the players day to day role.
Engaging & fun gameplay
Location and Time Agnostic
Adaptable learning for a remote or hybrid workplace. Online, autonomous learning with support and the option of virtual facilitated group discussions.
The cohort learns together but retains autonomy on when they want to learn within a window, requiring approx. 1 hour a week from the players through the program.
Blend autonomous level play with social connections and discussion through optional coaching, workshops, discussion forums.
Perfect for hybrid teams – the virtual cohort can learn from the office, home or a combination and have the same consistent high-quality experience regardless. The program reduces your delivery risk as it does not need to be adjusted to accommodate changes in ways of working across regions or preferences of individual staff.
Easy for Learning & Development Teams
This program is efficient and automated, requiring minimal time from L&D to deploy. You nominate the participants and then receive progress reports throughout the program.
We will create pre-release communications, log-ins, onboarding and tips, nudge your participants to complete their learning over the program and celebrate highlights along the way and keep the energy up. We will remind players individually where they are up to against the cohort goals, and provide regular reports on completion and progress by team, region or department.
All of this can be customised to dovetail in to the broader learning goals of your organisation.
Unmatched Holistic Professional Development
The real business landscape isn’t simple – it’s not enough to be functionally knowledgeable.
To be effective you must have strong personal communication and connections, you need the capability to see the bigger picture, join the dots, anticipate and adapt and understand the human nuance to decision dynamics. Power up your business savvy through experiential learning in three dimensions:
Manage priorities, energy, relationships, wellbeing and more.
Build new pathways connecting strategy, operations, finance, legal and the external environment.
Role Based Disciplines
A 360° view of functional silos within 9 different departments to deliver a well-rounded view, and the capacity to understand not just what they do, but how they succeed.
