Why Play A Game?

Live interactive experiences with real-world scenarios make long-lasting impacts. Rather than traditional lecture-based seminars, people love to learn by doing. Large companies like KEEN, NIKE,NASA and AMAZON use it to train their leaders and recommend it to their colleagues. Previously only available for the biggest and richest companies, READY OR NOT brings this advanced learning technique to small and medium manufacturers.

What are the Benefits for an MEP Center?

OMEP created the Ready or Not Business Simulation game because we know manufacturers learn best through practical hands-on experiences. Players participate in strategic business decision making, broadening their thinking as well as building partnerships with manufacturing peers. Based on OMEP’s experience running Ready or Not with clients, partners, and prospects, game play is engaging, even upon multiple play throughs. It builds a pathway for valuable conversation between centers and clients about a holistic approach to business improvement. 

We want to share these capabilities with the MEP National Network. Benefits and potential use cases of Ready or Not include: 

Broaden the perspective of clients or prospects to MEP Center capabilities beyond the shop floor 

Create unique and memorable events to increase your center’s market penetration – potential light-touch survey for participants 

Educate partners and other organizations – use Ready or Not to help them understand the challenges of small manufacturing businesses and how MEP centers can help. 

Ready or Not is a fun, interactive simulation where you have a seat on the leadership team! Working collaboratively, you get to make decisions that will impact you short and long term – plus many twists along the way.
