Interesting - Thanks all.
George - know and love the game. Can't imagine virtually.
David and James - have used that game. I even use a variant of this in my CSM.
All ideas focus on a manager who deals with a couple of teams. The problem I want to bring to light is executives in $1+ billion (Canadian not real money :-), organizations that micromanage down to the small decision level. I wouldn't expect execs in a billion dollar org to make many decisions that are smaller than millions and yet at least one is routinely going down further than this.
The problem with the traffic light sim - two fold:
- it's not hands on/way too intellectual
- It's not painful enough -> from teams to Sr Execs there are four levels. Some decisions can be delayed by 1+ mth, when an experiment could be run in hours/days.
