Overview

Next-Day Inc.

What exactly is the digital management simulation “Next-Day Inc.”?

  • it is a digital exercise for your personnel development or your recruitment process
  • the exercise is a realistic office workplace simulation of a management function during 50 minutes
  • the candidate have to take various decisions, analyse information, assess risks and plan tasks

Target groups

The management simulation is particularly suitable for three target groups:

  1. Young “high potentials”: in this group, two different aspects of the simulation are in the focus. One the one hand, the simulation shows to what extent the participant can quickly and correctly process complex information and on the other hand, the simulation reveals how far the understanding of a leadership or management role is already present and independent decisions are made. Approximately 41% of the individuals from the norm sample can be assigned to this group.
  2. Managers with first leadership experience: for managers with first management experience, the simulation is often used for a strengths / weaknesses analysis as an important basis for further development or for possible support of a career decision. Approximately 39% of the individuals from the norm sample can be assigned to this group.
  3. Experienced managers up to C-level: for this group, the simulation is well suited for a “review” since you would expect that these individuals achieve above-average results. In fact, the individuals in the norm sample with management experience achieve on average better results than those without management experience. Approximately 20% of the persons from the norm sample can be assigned to this group.

The characteristics

"Next-Day Inc." is designed in a modern style and is fully personalized, the candidate is addressed directly with his/her name. Different mails, letters and voice messages arrive dynamically in the digital mailbox, the simulation "reacts" to the answers of the participants.

The exercise does not require instructions from a moderator. Before the exercise, the candidate will see a short interactdive online-introduction explaining how to use it. The simulation is evaluated fully automatically, a feedback report is sent directly to the predefined contact person (e.g. the HR coordinator in your company).
It offers high validity due to the standardized evaluation, which compares the participant with the norm group (981 professionals and managers between 23 and 61). Of the participants in the norm group, 58.2% stated that they currently have a role with leadership responsibility.
The simulation guarantees the highest possible security and anonymity, no participant data are permanently stored, they are deleted after the simulation. All results are stored anonymously.

Application areas

The online-exercise may be used very well as complementary exercise in any assessment method. It is suitable for development- and assessment centers and similarly, it is a useful tool in recruitment procedures. It’s a helpful complementary element to verify the findings of interview, case studies, presentations, simulations or psychometric tests.
