Contents and Schedule

The two-day simulation focuses on a fictional county health and social services ecosystem. The participants in the simulation play the roles of various health and social services actors who operate in groups and make decisions that affect the realization of the county’s goals. You will receive a source material package, and the actual twists and turns of the simulation will be revealed to you during the simulation. The simulation’s facilitators control the flow of the simulation, and the course and outcomes of the simulation depend primarily on the results of the decisions made by the participants. Keynote speeches provide in-depth knowledge to support each participant’s decision-making.

The training methods are based on Aalto EE’s Strategy Game simulation method, which has been implemented in several tailored leadership trainings, for example.

Note that this program is held in Finnish.
