Activity Overview

Shaping the Future began as a design that was created by Dr. Geoff Cox, Design Director of RSVP Design.

Initially developed for the Motorola organisation as the ‘Leading Figures’ simulation in the late 90’s part of their move towards a shared-service finance model. Over a period of 18 months all senior finance professionals from Motorola EMEA came to a project base in Austria to go through a 5 day learning event which had as its heart the 24 hour long Leading Figures simulation.

The program was then rolled out to Motorola Asia and to a limited US population. The program was very successful in developing a comprehensive understanding of what this change would demand of the finance professionals - both ‘heart and mind’.

The program won the 1999 Motorola Presidents Award for Business Excellence - the first of a number of awards it has received including the 2008 TNT Masters Award which recognised its contribution to the implementation of the organisation’s new Risk and Control Strategy.

Activity Description

Activity Contents:

Comprehensive set of activity materials & briefing documents with training

Package Weight: 40kg

Over a series of rounds, teams must meet the needs of a demanding customer by building and supplying increasingly complex 3D geometric structures, within time and budget constraints.

As they tackle the problems this produces they must create effective and efficient management processes, communicate and manage information accurately and be innovative in the design of new products.

In addition, teams have decisions to make around resource allocation to ensure that they achieve the challenging financial target they have been set. They must also ensure compliance: completing regular, routine tasks that demonstrate the efficiency of their internal controls and compliance processes. A significant emphasis during this simulation is upon ’continuing professional development’. A requirement of the activity is that individual team members rotate through an observation and coaching role (known as the CPD task) in which they observe and review progress and then plan and manage regular learning reviews. In this way, the extended exercise offers significant opportunities for the teams to learn from experience, changing strategy and behaviour as appropriate.
