PepsiCo France aimed to enhance the performance and agility of its management leadership team. To achieve this, they partnered with Ad Arborem, a Miki Island certified partner in france. The focus was to foster a high-performance culture through experiential learning, team games, and structured debriefing sessions.

The Solution: Miki Island Experience

1. Team Game:
The leadership team participated in a dynamic and engaging game designed by Miki Island. This game was created to simulate real-world business challenges and required the team to make quick decisions, collaborate under pressure, and adapt to evolving scenarios. The immersive nature of the game allowed team members to experience the urgency and complexity of real-time problem-solving in a controlled environment.

2. Debriefing Sessions:
Following the game, the team engaged in thorough debriefing sessions. These sessions were structured to help team members reflect on their actions and decisions during the game. The debriefing allowed them to identify both strengths and areas for improvement. Additionally, the sessions facilitated discussions on how the agile principles demonstrated in the game could be applied to their daily work environment. This reflective process was crucial in translating game experiences into actionable insights for improving team performance.
