The Celemi ApproachThe Power of Learning lies in our unique methodology and consultative expertise. Ultimately, we ensure that participants are able to implement their newly acquired business acumen insights quickly into their own operations.
Ask "What if…"
- all our employees thought and acted like they owned the company?
- all our employees could see and understand our value drivers?
- we could experiment with different strategies for our stiff competition?
- we could increase competence without spending weeks in training?
- our employees could get a hands-on experience to see how a more efficient operation will improve sales and performance?
Why Business Simulations for business training?
Knowledge is the capacity to act in context.
Sometimes even a good learning experience may be of little value only because the participants cannot relate the activities to their own working experience. To avoid this, the structure of the learning has to match the structure of the business reality.
To start, we work closely with you to ensure a mutual understanding of your unique challenges, issues, employees and conditions. Furthermore, we can work with your senior management to define your strategic and tactical learning needs. We then frame the expected results by tying the learning solution to your desired achievements for increased company performance.
This is an important step to ensure consistency of learning outcomes for all participants and avoid contradictions & confusion. The choice of activities must be built upon relevant information and concepts - to ensure lasting knowledge, not short-lived lessons.
Most importantly, we work with you to ensure Celemi Solutions are a good match with your existing training and development programs.
"We cannot just absorb other people's knowledge…we can only create our own."
It is human nature that people do not want to be spoon-fed conclusions made by others. They want to be provided with the relevant information and the opportunity to build their own big-picture understanding, reach their own "aha's" and draw their own conclusions.
Our realistic business simulations and learning tools engage and challenge people as they develop the knowledge and skills required to improve business performance.
The value of what you know can only be seen by what you do.
Interaction and dialogue are proven methods for learning that lasts; traditional monologue lectures and handouts are not. Celemi's media mix is designed to maximize dialogue, teamwork and interactivity - which are essential to effectiveness in both large and small group settings.
Celemi's board- and computer-based business simulations are among the best in the world. We have decades of experience in helping participants experience the impact of business decisions, which enables them to make smarter choices in real-life.
Celemi is the originator of learning mat technologies - WorkMats® and DialogMats™ - large, custom designed table-top posters that contain interactive activities and guide relevant discussions.
All mats are supplemented with Celemi's printed Learning Guides, designed to capture an individual's thoughts, observations and conclusions. They can also be used in preparation or follow-up for a seminar.
In any business, time of the essence. We have helped many companies - regional, national and multinational - to reach their entire employee base quickly, easily and consistently. We can also work with you to seamlessly integrate Celemi programs with other events that you may be scheduling, such as speaker events, conferences and workshops.
Facilitation plays a very important role in the creation of a learning environment as it requires a special approach to the seminar. Through a well defined accreditation process, we guarantee high impact, high quality deliveries. Celemi's global network of certified, expert facilitators run both onsite corporate sessions and regional open sessions. For company-wide implementations, we can certify members of your own team for in-house expertise!
Employees who know how their business runs and the reasons behind the processes add more value to the company in terms of better decisions, intellectual capital, longevity and morale. We are very proud of our track record in this arena.
See what our clients are saying about the measurable results they have experienced as a result of incorporating Celemi into their learning programs.
The success of the learning program is often evident during the program itself. However, the return on investment can be measured over the long term. We work with our clients to define the qualitative and quantitative evaluation criteria that will give a realistic picture of impact.
Open Sessions are regularly scheduled regional sessions of Celemi Learning Solutions that are open to the public. Attending an open session might be appropriate if:
- you are a small business and do not have the required minimum number of participants (16) for an effective learning session
- your company is unable to train several employees all at once due to staffing and/or time constraints
- you wish to send a smaller number of employees to experience Celemi before implementing the program company-wide
- the regional sessions are more convenient for you and your employees
The Open Session are geared to different general environments - including manufacturing, knowledge, service and retail - and mimic the respective key characteristics of these. As with any session, participants receive expert facilitation and world-class business acumen training and learning outcomes. In many cases, working with people from other companies and industries provides additional perspectives in discovering what it takes to win in a fluid marketplace.
