An Actee game is a simulation of leadership and/or management situations. These simulations are based on theoretical knowledge of the topics that are covered. The simulations aim to deal with common issues within the fields of change management, leadership, and communication.

After you register as a user, you can create your own subscription, and here are the instructions on how to do it. 

 

 

 

 

  1. Click the button Actee Login in the top right corner and enter your account credentials.
  2. You will land on a page to put the name you prefer (normally related to the company you are working with).
  3. Afterward, you must select the industry of the company.
  4. Then you can choose the option that better suits your company.
  5. Read the general terms of the partnership agreement.
  6. Start using the platform and create your sessions.

How do I get started

 

Please let us know if you have further questions related to this write us an email at info@actee.com or call us at +4570707505.

No physical material is needed in addition to playing a game. You can play all our games and work with online tools as well as facilitate without any additional material. 

But should you still prefer to use handouts with the game stories and choices, you can download a PDF before starting the game. This also enables you to print the storyline and choices, or you can implement the texts in your own design document.

We also have a floorboard, which is a physical gameboard that comes with boats and stakeholder pieces, you can use to activate participants in the room and to visualize game positions of the different groups as part of a session/course. 

The digital alternate for the physical floorboard is the Host View.

To find out more about the Host View go to our article. Click here

 

 

 

If you want to start using Actee on a regular basis, you should consider making your own subscription. This can be done for free and will give you access to the game builder, the toolbox, and all the games that were previously locked when you were playing as an Actee Free user. In other words, there is no reason for you not to register for a partner module.

 

Here is a simple step guide on how to complete this process.

 

Step 1: Locating the option

After creating a free user and going to the right corner, you can click the option called Settings.

 

Then go to Create Subscription and click this button and follow the step guide presented to you.

Step 2: Creating the subscription

The creation of a subscription involves several steps of which the first five are the most important. During the last steps, you will be able to customize the visuals of your subscription. However, the last steps do not need any changes to complete the process. For this reason, we will focus on the initial five steps in this guide. Below you will find a picture of what the guide layout looks like:

 

  • Subscription name: Come up with a name for your platform. This could either be the name of your company or something more personal if you are working on your own.
  • Business field: Select the business field you are working in. Remember to also find a sub-area if there is only one option of sub-area, you must select that one.
  • Subscription owner: Decide who is going to be the subscription owner(s). You will be on this list by default, but if you want to add a colleague or a friend to your module, you can do that here.
  • Sub-URL: This step is important for when you log on to the system in the future. Currently, you will be located on actee.com. However, this process will result in you having your own sub-page on actee.com, which is why the app part will be replaced by a URL of your choice (example: freesubscription.actee.com).
  • Optional: If you are purchasing a paid subscription, you will be presented with a payment flow at this point. If you are registering a free subscription, you will automatically move to the next step.
  • Fill out the visuals – or skip this: At this point, your partner module has been created and is ready for use. You can, however, add your own logo and maybe a few colors to the page on the last steps of the step guide.

Good luck and have fun with your new free or paid subscription!

Make Your Own Game!

 

The Game Builder is a tool, which enables you to design or tailor your own games from your subscription.

You can build your own game within the main concepts of Cycle, Barometer, and Bubbles, where you can choose both long, short, and mini versions. You can create your own games by using one of our existing games templates. Certified consultants with their own partner module can access the Game Builder and Company subscriptions as well. Click here to find out more about our packages!

Depending on your purpose and goals, you can use the Game Builder to build a new game with your own storyline, dilemmas, and theories or you can just change a few elements (e.g. company name or stakeholder descriptions - see the adjustable elements in the list below).

If you are interested in grappling with designing or making your own adjusted game version in one of the game concepts, you can go to the Game Builder tool, which will walk you through the necessary steps and help you to get started with building your game.

Adjustable Game Elements

  • Intros.
  • Stakeholders comments, leadership feedback. 
  • Add or change stakeholders types.  
  • Add Theory or models fitting your specific need. Including player endgame profiles, stakeholder profiles 
  • Profile feedback, what did the player focus on in the game. What was created as a great result due to the profile and what is to be noted if this is the players' profile. 
  • End chapter info.
  • Main-section options - interventions. Including feedback. 
  • Stakeholder Comments.
  • Movement of the element as a result of the specific choice. 
  • Resources or cost of interventions.
  • Options.  
  • Add or reduce chapters, choices, stakeholders, and length of the games.  
  • Put pictures and videos into the game chapters, choices, results, and texts. 
  • Collect your own theoretical statistic to guide your HR L&D decisions for specific groups who have played your game. 
  • Display your cool game to all users on Actee or keep your game and sell your game to only your clients.       

Watch this Game Builder guide on our explanatory videos below.

 

 

If you still have doubts and questions regarding these topics please let us know via email at info@actee.com or call us at +4570707505.

 

You need to have a paid subscription or access to a subscription as a superuser in order to work with the Game Builder tool.

Gaining access can be done by either being part of a company subscription or by registering as a certified consultant and creating a partner module. If you are interested in purchasing a company subscription, you should click here to find out more. If you have participated in a facilitated certification or self study program, you should consider registering for a partner module.

Is it possible to change the maximum number of characters once the game is designed? 

Yes, you can add or extract more people (stakeholders) in your game.

1. Go to your games under the Game Builder tool (from your dashboard after logging in to Actee www.actee.com). 

2. Pres edit on the game. (or add a new game if you haven't worked in the game builder before). 

3. Go to Stakeholder Info.

 

4. Press on a stakeholder that will open below. You can add up to 16 stakeholders. 

 

How do the theories that are selected in an option (on the right side) show up in the game?

In the front-end of the game, the player cannot see the theory you have added or selected. unless you describe it in your result text - Feedback window to the player. We advise 100% transparency and links to theories and research allowing accreditation for great work someone has to spend life on. But also to encourage the player to dig deeper and learn more.     

Theories show at the end of the game in 2 ways.

1. As a leadership profile. depending on the choices of the players.

2. As profile (if you have added this when you add the theory in the backend).

This section is explaining the basics of the theory section and opportunities in the game builder article.

 

Program the impact of the option or start position of your game.

As the game developer, you are also the expert on your theory. You are also the right person to make decisions on how a theory in your choice, in your story, is calculated. 

You make the movement in your game. The better movement in the triangle of, theory, story, and movement the better game. So work with the movement.  

Movement is changed under the option and result section. 

You can change two elements. 

1. the start position of a chapter. 

2. the movement of each option.

(depending on your game and game board you are working with movement options will vary eg. Actee Cycle game, Actee Barometer Game, or Actee Bubbles game).

 

Movement of start position:

 

Change the movement of an option in your game:

 

Remember you are the expert and the system needs your knowledge to make the specific movement related to your theory and history. 

 

Time, resources for the player in games and chapters.

In Actee each option has a # of hours and each chapter is limited to a certain time. Where to program this?

You have to take 2 steps

1. Click time on by using the grey toggle.  

2. Set the time

(In big games we have a great experience with 100 hours). Note you also need to set time on options after you have added time "on" to your chapter. 

 

Can the manager be part of the team/project in a game? Eg. In most games, the players are not on the board. Would that make sense?

Yes, it can make sense but!

The more complex the story and the more you need the player to understand the more text you need to explain.  

You might want to consider making a game including the manager in the leadership games?  

Note we are adding up an opportunity to display your games to all users soon we love to get feedback on such a game.

 

How do you simulate/test the game (during the development)?

 

Step 1. You need to publish your game. done in your game-builder / game overview

(Note when you have made games you need to make a copy of your game before you can start deleting chapters and adding chapters) 

 

Step 2.

On A subscription (Free or paid) remember that some games are not available on a free subscription.

2.1 Dashboard.

2.2 Concept (Cycle, Barometer, or Bubbles).

2.3 Games find your game. 

2.4 start game. 

 

What is a challenge, case, and rounds? 

Legacy wording...

  • Challenge = Chapter 
  • Case = Game 
  • Rounds = Chapter

We are trying to keep up!

Please send more questions, call us at +4570707505 or write to info@actee.com

 

Actee uses many options related to this topic. The theories are based on different authors who are relevant in themes about Communication, Leadership, and Management.

Every game can have one or more theories attached to the simulation or situation. For example, as shown in the picture below the theory in the Destination CRM is from Kotter.

You are able to check the theories' definitions in the Game Builder in the section Theory Selection.

 


 

Stakeholder profiles

These are inspired by the  16 style types of personalities of Daniel Goleman. Every stakeholder has their their own personality and way to react to different actions. You can find more information in the Game Builder section at the Stakeholder Info.  

 

The handout issue can be resolved by updating the handouts (Game text) in the game builder.

Step 1. Find various settings:

Step 2. Press "update PDF" options come below after clicking on various settings.

 

 

 

The case-interview: Writing up a new game for a client forces you to think about what the client need from the game. For that reason, you should set up a case-interview where you figure out exactly what they expect. Locate the people you need to talk to and arrange for an interview.

 

Initial draft: Once you have completed the initial interview, you should start working on the key elements of the game and present these to the client.

 

Final draft: Once you have finished the game, you should prepare a test-session with your client where you can test the game and make sure that the goals for learning are met.

 

Corrections: Use the notes from your test session to make the final corrections and, if needed, start working on translations for the game.

 

NOTE: meeting with the client must ensure that you get the following:

 

1: Get information on what is needed and how you intend on getting there.

2: Working on writing the game (a group is working on stakeholders in the game or, see the www.actee.com/FAQ for more info on this process)

 

 

 

 

You can add any theory or model you like to any game in Actee.

Before you start, you need to decide on what framework you want to use. This is obviously depending on the receiver of the game and the learning outcome.

 

Here you need to clarify questions like:

1: Is it a change?

2: Are we working on leadership development?

3: Is it communication?

 

This will direct you to some of the theories you need to use. Some of the games already have some theory embedded and you might want to reuse those.

You can also add your own in the Theory section.

You can always add or extract theories later. NOTE the option of the profile theory section.  

 

  • Less theory = The fewer theories you have, the easier your game is to understand for the player. If you want participants to play without facilitation, less is more….                                                                 
  • More theories = give you a need for a facilitation guide and you get more to unfold with the group. This is great for learning and your learning goal can be much higher.

 

Can I change the 4 levels in the Change Game? Yes you can here are the steps: 

1. Log in

2. Find your game

3. Various setting

4. Customized Resistance Level

 

 

 

 

You need to clarify this for your story before you dig too deep into the game:

1: Player perspective (what role is the player supposed to take on? How many stakeholders will be presented to the player and how is the player supposed to reach the goal?)

2: What is the ending and starting point of the game.

3: What is the "problem"?. Here you have to think of problems the player has to solve in the game. A great game has one major situation per chapter.

4: The number of chapters. (Is connected to the above)  

 

Here are some questions and issues you need to know of:

 

Example of introduction:

​COMPANY X is faced with the task of strengthening customer relations. This will gradually happen through a deconstruction of elements that formerly separated decision-making into different departments.

The goal is to achieve better customers service whenever and wherever that customer should interact with the company. The process of change has already begun through the implementation of a new CRM IT system. The tool provides streamlined information on the customer, regardless of what specific department is doing the research.

The initial phase of the change is expected to spark uncertainty on how the change is going to impact every employee. At this point, it is necessary to drive the process in a meaningful direction, which is a difficult task when there is a change in power, approach and process.

 

X as a company/organization:

What type of company is x? How would the company be reasonably described?

Special identity? How are you different from other companies?

  • Style of leadership
  • National/global
  • Ambitions
  • Development
  • Products
  • Primary customers
  • Competition
  • Vision and goal
  • Motto
  • Inspiration

 

The current situation?

What do you need the case for?

Who should primarily use the case? (manager level)

In conjunction: Who is the typical leader in your company? Would it make sense to design the case to reflect this “type” of person? (the case is played through the eyes of this person).

  • Who’s referred to?
  • How many employees does that person currently have?
  • What is the title of that person?
  • What is his/her primary responsibility? Secondary? (fields of responsibility and authority)
  • What could be the challenges of making this leader embrace and work with the process of change?
  • What is the leader supposed to change throughout the process?
  • Any structural changes (layoffs, new employee profiles etc.)?

Organizational structure:

  • How is "X" structured?
  • Do you have any traditions that you want to keep from changing?
  • In what ways, do you seek to improve employee satisfaction and development?                                              

The new situation (earning goal in everyday work life):

  • How would you describe the new normal that needs to be implemented?
  • What is its name (leadership model, the new project or alike)?
  • To what extent do you seek to implement the system?
  • What is the general goal with the new normal?
  • What is the current plan for the process?
  • The time schedule?

 

The approach to change projects:

  • Do you have experience implementing change projects in this company?                                             If yes, what were the reactions of your employees?
  • What proved to be especially challenging?
  • What did the managers experience as difficulties?
  • In a larger perspective, did the company itself suffer from any of this?
  • What proved difficult to complete the change?

 

What could go wrong? What kind of challenges should the managers be prepared to meet?:

  • Strategic challenges?
  • Political agendas?
  • Unfulfilled goals?
  • Challenges relating to current tools?
  • System meltdown
  • Structural challenges?
  • Problems with competence?
  • Employees not reaching the aim of general competence level?
  • Challenges on management level?
  • Time pressure? Resource pressure?
  • Cultural challenges?
  • Conflicts?
  • Sabotage?
  • Confusion and misunderstandings?

 

 

 

The set of people you are working with, the game needs to reflect the context of the story.

 

  • Considering the characters of the case – which functions and/or titles would seem to fit the representation of your employees in the case?
  • What kinds of tasks are they handling during a normal workday?
  • Following the coming change process, how exactly would the employees have to change their tasks and focus?
  • What benefits and/or disadvantages would the employees possibly point out following the change?

 

 

Movement is connected to the theory and your choices. Therefore, we advise you to add the text to the game and then work on the movement.

 

Remember the movement must be connected to:

When in the process you make a choice

What the story is when you make the choice and the movement must be aligned to the theory.

The movement can be done as a fixed position or the choice can be added to an existing position.

 

NOTE: you can use the movement to create a clear situation and a clear connection to theory, real-life, or…  by letting one choice affect the game a lot or very little.

This is called a disjunction (peter Jarvis) and creates an opening with the player to understand why the game did not do as the player expected.

This calls for a clear explanation in the facilitation guide and in the result text.

 

 

Once you have finished the game, you need to test and play it several times to ensure that everything plays out as you intended.

 

Publish the game

You can, at any time, make a copy of your game for your clients and you can always make a copy and start customizing the game to make a shorter, faster, or longer game for other purposes.

Here you will find the instructions on how to do it.

  1. Go to the Game Builder.
  2. Select the game you want to Edit.
  3. Go where you have placed the videos and delete the old ones.
  4. Select the option video and add the URL of the video you will be using. 
  5. Remember to copy only the final part of the Youtube or the platform you prefer video as shown below.

ie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zX3NJzWJDI

You only use the code after the equal symbol 1zX3NJzWJDI

Cycle- Gameplay

The Cycle game is one of the main concepts in Actee's digital simulation game universe.

With Cycle you can develop your change management skills and learn to drive change and lead people in the organization. 

Within this concept, you can find a range of game cases designed with different change objectives and dilemmas in focus. 

Furthermore, the concept comes with the additional tools: ChangeLive, ChangeMeter, and the DataModule, which can support the learning, planning, and impact of using it as a learning activity. 

 

Play Cycle game

This is an instruction video for our Cycle games. This concept has a range of themes within change management, digital transformation, and organizational development in the company or organization. This game is a learning simulator used around the world by leaders and change managers who wish to broaden their own horizons on driving complex change processes inside the organization as well as rolling out the knowledge throughout the organization. The Cycle game has been used by our customers as a tool to drive many changes, for example, system implementation in the organizations as CRM. 

 

 

The scoring system of Cycle is a feature that enables you to compare your results with others and compete. You can compare the score of the players participating in a Team Challenge or in a Battle game. You can also use your score to see how you are doing compared to others in the Data Module tool, where you accumulate results for your personal game profile.

The score of the game is based on your last five choices. An example of the score is illustrated in the pictures below. The number in the parenthesis, in this case, 175, shows the score of the 5 most recent choices made, and the score to the left shows the total score up until this choice. Therefore, when making the next choice, the total score will be 485. However, only the five most recent choices will be counted in your score, to avoid differentiation between someone who has made fewer choices than hours, as some choices require more hours.

However, after each chapter has ended, you will have moved your boat to a certain field, depending on the choices made. The further you move the boat, the more points you will have. That is why it is important to make the right decisions throughout the entire game! The scoring system also factors in how many stakeholders you have left off the boat, as well as their resistance levels. So, remember to keep your stakeholders satisfied and onboard the change. 

 

 

 

The calculations behind the scoring system are illustrated below.

Here you can see an example of how the score is calculated:

Let's imagine that you will make 5 choices in a chapter - to make it simple, they all reward 100 points each.

- Choice 1 will give you 100 points (total score = 100 (1))
- Choice 2 will give you 100 points (total score = 200 (1+2))
- Choice 3 will give you 100 points (total score = 300 (1+2+3))
- Choice 4 will give you 100 points (total score = 400 (1+2+3+4))
- Choice 5 will give you 100 points (total score = 500 (1+2+3+4+5))

This will result in a total of 500 points. However, should you make more choices than 5, your points will be adjusted as mentioned above, the points will be calculated based on your 5 most recent choices. This means that you will get a different total score the moment you make more than 5 choices. The results of the first choices will thus be replaced by the most recent.

- Choice 6 you 110 points (total score = 510 (Choice# 2+3+4+5+6))
- Choice 7 you 110 points (total score = 520 (Choice# 3+4+5+6+7))

The reason for this is if you have 100 hours and you get points each time you make a choice, the cheap choices will allow you to make more choices and this will result in players going for low cost (resources/ hours) choices to make more choices to win the game in points.


This can potentially create the understanding that many cheap (resources/ hours) choices always will create a better result.


This can also potentially create an understanding that fast solutions will create the most impact - which is rarely the case!

You can always click on the score and get the calculation for the specific situation.

Barometer - Gameplay

Barometer game is one of the main concepts in Actee's digital simulation game universe.

With Barometer, you can develop your professional leadership skills and work with your personal repertoire of how you approach and deal with situations and decision-making.  Besides within this concept, you can find a range of game cases designed with different storylines and dilemmas in focus. 

Use the DataModule to support the learning and impact of the Barometer game, which can help you compare your leadership or leadership profiles across the organization. Furthermore, you can complement your leadership profile with the StyleTrade exercise. 

The scoring system of Barometer is a feature that enables you to compare your results with others and compete. You can compare the score of the players participating in a Team Challenge or in a Battle Game. You can also use your score to see how you are doing compared to others in the DataModule tool, where you accumulate results for your personal game profile.

In Barometer, your score is based on two factors: the accumulated score of your last five choices and your Round Score.

Your score consists of two variables: a goal score and a barometer score. The better you are at achieving your set goals and achieving a positive climate barometer, the higher your score. The score of your last five choices illustrates how well you have been able to achieve this positive climate. The Round Score is dependent on the previous choices you have made in the game, which will affect the overall status of the barometers and goals. Therefore, you need to make the right choices throughout the entire game to achieve the best scoring result!

 

 

The calculations behind the scoring system are illustrated below.

When you click on the score in the game you will see the actual score for that specific choice you have made. 

Note: 

Scores that count can be illustrated like this in for games:

  • Choice 1 you 100 points (total score = 100 (1))
  • Choice 2 you 100 points (total score = 200 (1+2))
  • Choice 3 you 100 points (total score = 300 (1+2+3))
  • Choice 4 you 100 points (total score = 400 (1+2+3+4))
  • Choice 5 you 100 points (total score = 500 (1+2+3+4+5))

FROM HERE THINGS BECOME THE LAST 5 CHOICES YOU HAVE MADE.

  • Choice 6 you 110 points (total score = 510 (2+3+4+5+6))
  • Choice 7 you 110 points (total score = 520 (3+4+5+6+7))

The reason for this is if you have 100 hours and you get a point each time you make a choice, the cheep choices will allow you to make more choices and this will result in players going for low cost (resources/ hours) choices to make more choices to win the game in points.
This can potentially create the understanding that many cheap (resources/ hours) choices always will create a better result.

This can also potentially create an understanding that Cheap choices always have a little impact (this is not the case).

Therefore games always calculate the last five choices made in the games.   

You can always click on the score and get the calculation for the specific situation.

 

 

Bubbles- Gameplay

Bubbles is one of the main concepts in Actee's digital simulation game universe.

Bubbles is a game concept designed to work with relational communication.

Learning with the game helps you develop a new sense of tact, awareness, and understanding of how you as a professional can direct the conversation and dialogue to the best outcome. 

Within the Bubbles concept, you can find a range of game cases designed with different storylines, dilemmas, and stakeholders in focus. 

Use the DataModule to support the learning and impact of the game, which can show your personal profile to set new goals, to discuss with other like-minded, and to see the impact of your learning and development.

 

The scoring system of Bubbles is a feature that enables you to compare your results with others and compete. You can compare the score of the players participating in a Team Challenge or in a Battle Game. You can also use your score to see how you are doing compared to others in the DataModule tool, where you accumulate results for your personal game profile.

In Bubbles, your score is based on two factors: the score of your last five choices and your Round Score.

Your score is calculated on how well you communicate within the 8 communication styles. The better you are at communication with the style(s) that the situation calls for, the higher your score will be. The score is reflecting the theory about broadening your repertoire of communication styles, and therefore different situations will call for different approaches throughout a game. The score of your last five choices illustrates how well you have been at communicating your last five choices. The Round Score is dependent on the previous choices you have made in the game, which overall will affect how well you have been at communicating the 8 styles. Therefore, you need to make the right choices throughout the entire game to be on top of the scoring system!

 

Quiz- Gameplay

The quiz game is a tool easy to design and use for your participants. You can create your own; related to the activity, a specific topic, or even a non-related topic, just for fun as an ice breaker with your participants. You can put as many answers as possible and points you want.

 

 

  1. Go to the Game Builder.

1. Then go to Add New Game.

2. Click next.

3. Then choose the option Quiz, choose a scenario (e.i. Create New Quiz), create a title, and select a language. (You can also create a copy of one of our games).

4. Type your question in the big space, add audio, picture, or video if you want. You can add introduction text and a description on the top option buttons.

5. Add the options you want to appear, remember as many as you need. Please assign punctuation and check them as correct (green check) or wrong (red cross).

6. Then save the questions.

7. When you finish doping and saving the questions just finish and publish the game. You have two options one is doing it as a private quiz or public where all our users will be able to play it.

8. Afterward, just try your own quiz to check if it works as desired. You will be able to edit the game questions or options you want to change.

Note: The points are counted as you give them a specific value.

For example, if you give 10 points for the correct answers and there are 10 questions if the participant has the total of questions answered right, the final score should be 100 points.

Game Modes when you do facilitation

The Single Player mode is perfect for when you are playing on your own. This Game Mode is stripped of fancy features and will only focus on the choices you make throughout the game.

 

The Battle Mode is what you need when you want to spice up your game with a little competition. This type of game is played just like the Single Player. However, scores will be kept all the way through the game and you will be notified whenever you take the leader - or lose it to one of your colleagues. This Game Mode is perfect for when you are introducing others to the game or if you are playing in a small group of people.

 

The Team Challenge is the best way to play and facilitate Actee games. In this Game Mode, you and your participants must be divided into groups of typically 4-5 people. Throughout the game, participants must first make individual choices and then turn their attention towards the other group members and find the choice they can agree on to the largest extent.

 

This way of playing takes a little longer than the others but makes up for it by providing invaluable learning for the participants. The exercise of picking an individual choice and then arguing as to why this is the better choice adds another layer to what participants learn from the game. Personal experience is allowed to enter the game this way, which helps in the exchange of knowledge and information. 

 

Here is a video on the Team challenge 

Go and check the article Step guide - TeamChallenge game dynamic to learn more about this mode.

This is a visual step guide of 5 steps to the Team Challenge game function and dynamic. The Team Challenge is perfect for game sessions and workshops in groups to create a fun dynamic between players in the group as well as between the groups.

With the Team Challenge function, all players in the group will make individual choices in every round before discussing which choice to go with as a group. In this way, every player can compare own preferences with the group decision, and at the end of the game, every player will get a personal profile based on the individual choices in the game. During the game in a session, you can use the Host View tool to get an overview of the status and score of each group in the session.

 

Step 1. 

All players need a device to participate. Each player onboard a group in the session. You can do as many groups as you need, we advise you to put between 2 to 5 people, but you can add more.

  

Step 2.

In each round, every player will make individual choices before deciding on a joint decision. 



Step 3. 

For the best dynamic and result, the group has to discuss and collaborate to decide which choices to go with as a group. 

 

Step 4.


When the group decision has been made the gamemaster in the group can complete the choice on behalf of the group. All members in the group can take on the crown of the gamemaster to lead the group well through the game.

Step 5. 

As a facilitator of a Team Challenge session, you can open the Host View tool to get an overview of the status, position, and score of the groups. Use this visualization to discuss and reflect on choices, results and experiences, and learnings throughout the game.

Also, the view of five groups at the time.

 

Please go play and have fun while learning.

If you need further information do not hesitate in contacting us at +4570707505 (Whatsapp and chat available) or write us at info@actee.com.

When you play Actee 100% online your web tool will give a frame on what we advise you to use as your Game mode. 

Below is a web tool overview, but please pay attention to the information from the provider of your web tool. They might have some great ways of using the tool. Here is the easy-to-understand overview.

  

Here is our Game mode advice for both setups. 

Please note if you want to play the Team Challenge Game mode but you are working in a plenary setup then we advise you to break the session when participants play.  Let groups come together outside of your session allowing them to discuss and talk related to choices they make in the games.   

Before breaking the session up you need to ensure participants know the Team challenge game structure.

Find more on the Team challenge Game mode here. Click here

 

When you make your session you will be able to find a facilitation guide and on Actee games we also add script books/ detailed time plans for how to play the games. 

As a certified consultant, you find theory powerpoints and more script books and background material in the Facilitation Tools in the Consultant Tools under the dashboard. 

 

Session

At this point, you must have a session prepared if you missed that step find the host view.

The direct links will take your participants to our login page where they can either enter a guest name tag or register a user. To log in with a session ID click login in the upper right corner of your screen, and enter as either a registered user or a guest. 

 

You can add participants to your session in 3 ways.

  1. Providing participants with either a session ID or a direct link and letting them enter the session as guest users.
  2. Get the participants to register a new user in your session and guide them into your session.
  3. By adding users to your session on the flow when you create your session.

 

Option 1 explained

1. Go to actee.com and click login in the upper right corner of your screen.

Use sessions to design courses where you control the content, focus, and access.

A session is a program/course you can build by choosing and combining available instruments like games and tools, you will need for a customized learning activity.

If you are going to facilitate, teach or drive a course with a number of participants, you can use the Session Creator to build a session that suits your interests. 

 

Create a Session

You need to build sessions to facilitate games with groups and to onboard participants directly to specific content and topics.

If you want to facilitate, teach or drive a course with a group/several groups, you need to create one. A session is the only way to make groups. If you want to use the TeamChallenge function in a game, it is necessary to attach groups to a particular session. 

The advantage of working with sessions is also that you are able to onboard your users/participants directly to the content (games and tools) that you have chosen for the session. You invite users to your session by sharing the Session ID/name sending a link or only the ID of the set session.

The Session Creator

The Session Creator is a tool you use to build sessions.

When you use this, you have to complete a certain number of steps, where you are guided to fill out the needed information to design your customized session: 

  1. Give your session a name/ID.
  2. The number of participants to join the session.
  3. The number of groups you will divide the participants into.
  4. The maximum number of participants in each group.
  5. The start and end date of the session (determining the time for joining the session with the ID you have created).
  6. Choose the specific games and tools you want to use for the session.
  7. You have the option of inviting fellow consultants to join the session with the same access rights as you.
  8. Add licenses to the session and you are ready to invite the participants.

It's up to you if you want the participants to prepare for the course by creating a user beforehand or if you just want them to create a user and log in as part of the course.

 

The session list is an overview of the sessions you have created or are invited into as a partner or consultant. This shows you upcoming, active, and previous sessions. You need to create one in the Session Creator before you can find it in the session list.

 

How can I use the Session List?

The Session List gives you an overview of all sessions you have access to, and you can edit information from the list.

On the Session List, you can see the basic information about every session and you can enter the specific one to edit details.

The Session List contains: 

  1. Name of the session.
  2. Date when the session was created.
  3. Start and end date of the session.
  4. The number of participants that can enter the session.
  5. If the session is complete and ready to join.
  6. You can move the remaining access from a session.
  7. You can copy the URL of the session, which you can share with participants to enter the session without using the Session ID.
  8. You can reenter the session in Session Creator to change/redesign a range of elements in the session. 

You need to create a session in Session Creator before you can find the Session List.

 

We have two kinds of automated emails that you can use as a facilitator to prepare participants for a session or a game. Read through this short guide to get a better understanding:

 

Sending mail when you are creating a session:

There are three ways to get emails to send from the system.

 

1. In a session when adding users.

 

 

2. To schedule a session click on the right button schedule mail for session users.

 

 

3. Choose the date and time of the invitation. Invited users will receive an e-mail 5 minutes before the module is opened

 

 

OR

 

1. Send now (when you finish the session/course creation)

No matter how you choose to send emails from the system, there will be sent two types of mail.

 

If you want to register users but NOT want to send emails from the system, then just proceed without choosing when to send an email.

 

Let´s look at some examples:

1. You create a session attach users but don’t schedule modules or send emails. = no emails will be sent. 

 

2. You create a session add no users but schedule one of 2 modules (the last module). The mail will be sent to all users attached to the session 5 min before the session. 

 

3. You add new users and send the mail now and you schedule module 2. There will be sent 2 emails to new users after you finish the session. And there will be sent 1 email to users already know to the system with an invite to join the session. The second module email will again be sent 5 min before module 2 opens. (3 emails to new users, 2 emails to know users from the system)   

 

4. You add a session with 5 modules and the last 4 modules are scheduled. No adding users. You log users into your session when you have them in the session. And there will be sent a mail to all attached users you have logged into your session. The invite to the modules will be sent 5 min before each module you have scheduled.

You cannot decide the language when creating a session. The language will be automatically adjusted to what the participants select as their primary language. Note that some simulations only have a few language layers which mean that participants will have to select another language at the beginning of the game than the one they initially selected.

 

You can end or stop a session.

When you are building your session in the Session Creator: You can schedule the session to stop being accessible by participants after the date you have set. 

 

If you want to end or stop a session already done you have to:

  • Log in.
  • Go to Dashboard.
  • Then Facilitation tools.
  • Click on the session List.
  • Find the session press on edit. 
  • Select the date and press Finalize.

You need to create a session in Session Creator before you can find the Session List.

Use the Host View is made to review the status of your game session and users which also project virtual game board.

The Host View is a useful tool for facilitators to keep track of the status of the game in Group View (Position of participants in a group). Click Single Player or TeamChallenge depending on the game setup you have used.

In Host View you can check up on:

  1. Available seats in the session.
  2. Session participants.
  3. Consultants attached to the session.
  4. The number of groups.
  5. Total accesses.
  6. Accesses used and remaining.

Furthermore, you can keep track of participants attached to a session:

  1. Name of the participants.
  2. Email address of the participants.
  3. The group they are in.
  4. If they have status as consultant or user.
  5. Their last login time.

If you need to see a complete list of all your sessions, check out the session list.

The Host View is part of your facilitation tools. With this, you will get updated data from your participants as they play or move around in the tools.  

 

Where to find the session view

  1. Log in.
  2. Go to facilitation tools
  3. Then go to the session list
  4. Find the session you are working on.
  5. Press on host view on the right side. 

Note: Data is not updated automatically and you need to press refresh data to fetch the newest data from participants. This is to prevent you from having new data as you are facilitating with a group. 

Can I block participants from moving from one chapter to the next?  

Yes, you can by clicking on the lock icon to close it or open it again (closed are shown in red and open in green)so the participants will not be able to move to the next chapter in the session view in the team-challenge game mode. see more about game modes click here.

 

 

 

 

Therefore, you will be able to control the game flow within one-click action.

 

 

Since the system does not know the users it will not send the emails to anyone unless the specific person authorizes it.

It is well known when a person receives an email from an unknown sender in terms of security this would cause a high-risk breach for their systems. For that reason, you cannot send a system email to the participants before they are registered (that’s the red error you get).

The way to send an invite to participants not known to the system is to send the link to the session or module in a separate mail from your own mailbox.

 

How to get the links to your session or module within your session?

Below is a picture from a session in the host view.

 

You get to the host view after completing your session or dashboard/admin/facilitation tools/session-list/ host-view or session list (see below) and click on the host view option is a link on the right or look it up what is the session view article.

 

You have two options when sending the invitation.

1. Send the link (URL address) which will be copied to your clipboard.

 

2. Send the session ID. e.i. FAQSession. They go directly to the website and go to join a session and then paste the code assigned for this.

 

 

 

 

This video shows how to facilitate the Actee Barometer game. Below this video, you will find the questions participants would ask in a session. You can also check these questions in the facilitation guide made for every game.

Note the session is made in a certification process find more about this click here.

 

Leader and result question (chapter 1)

In real life when did you focus too much on the results? And not on how you are perceived as a leader

Which choice do you think was the most important for you in terms of your results as a leader and business responsible?

When you look at these results what do they tell you about this leader?

 

Climate questions (chapter 2)

What do you do to change the climate?

How important is the climate at this point in the new leader game - and why?

What leadership style would you choose if you should move clarity (one of the climate barometers) in a positive direction?

What climate barometers is most difficult to handle for you (or in the game)

If you compromise the climate what do you need to do to get a positive climate back?

 

Leadership styles (chapter 3)

In what context this style of leadership works well and in what context does not so well?

What is your own preferred style?

Do you recognize a leadership style that you need to practice getting to better outcomes in your own leadership?

You are close to your goal but are struggling with your team’s engagement, responsibility, and clarity, what does that tell you about the leadership style you have chosen?

Which leadership style could have given you a different result and why?

 

Perceptions for making choices (chapter 4)

What arguments decided what choices you made?

Which move in your opinion would have a great outcome from here?

What should be your next step and why?

 

Team questions (chapter 5)

Can you imagine one of your team members (back at work) who would react positively to the commanding style? (When and Why)

What happens to a team if one member constantly uses the visionary (Obama) leadership style?

What is in your mind the most supportive leadership style for the start of a change?

When is it time to change the style and how do you see (experience) it is time to shift your style in a team?

 

Back at work (transfer learnings) (chapter 6)

What climate is most important for your work now?

How do your choices so far reflect your practice at home?

Is there a climate (barometer) you as a leader need to work on now or in the future?

Tools and Treasures

The ChangeMeter is a survey tool you can use to get a good insight into the status of the change situation at hand by comparing your own take on the situation with relevant stakeholders. Before filling in your answers and sending out the ChangeMeter, you need to mark which phase(s) in the change you are focusing on: Initial Actions, Implementation, and/or Anchoring. 

 

 

Please check the article Step Guide - use the ChangeMeter.

 

 

What is a ChangeMeter?


The ChangeMeter is a short survey with six questions. It allows you to discover the discrepancies between how you think the change process is proceeding and how your employees/stakeholders see the change process. It simply reveals if there is a gap in your understanding of the situation where it makes certain areas stand out that helps focus your efforts.

 

 

How to Use It?


You start by answering the six questions in the survey yourself. Hereafter, you send the same questions to your employees/stakeholders. Answer the questions by moving the pointer to the right of your screen.

 

 

How Long does it Take?


Answering the six questions and sending out the survey will take you about 15 minutes. Then you will get back the answers of your recipients, which will give you an instant overview of the energy and spirit towards the change among you. After using the ChangeMeter survey you will need time to decide which of the areas you want to work with, and how to do it.

 

Where you can find it?

You have to go to tools on the dashboard, there will appear the whole game and at the bottom, you can see the Changemeter and Changelive tools. Finally follow the instructions to create your version.

We encourage you to use the filter tool, go to categories and chosen tools.

 

This is a short guide on how to create a project with this tool. Use ChangeLive to track projects that lead to changes in your organization. By tracking activities and energy of the change in ChangeLive, you get a better understanding of what you can do to secure a smooth change process and manage your stakeholders.

This is the principal view, from where you will be able to handle your project and stakeholders.

Our Toolbox and Consultant Toolbox can be used to access relevant files to help manage your organizational development. In this, you will find exercises and tools to help you understand common obstacles in change processes, leadership dilemmas and communication. The toolbox can be accessed by either being attached as a module to a session or by being attached to a company subscription as either a regular user or a super user.

To be able to use the Consultant Toolbox you must do the certification and this will give you access to more complete information than the normal Toolbox. If you want to know more about our certification programs please click here.

 

 

This version of the toolbox can only be accessed by people who are certified in one of the three main concepts. This toolbox contains guides on how to facilitate the games and also documents on the theoretical framework that the games are based on. This toolbox can be accessed as soon as you are registered as a certified consultant and can be found in the folder Facilitation tools on your dashboard.

Handouts can be downloaded after picking a game and selecting game mode. Just before entering the game itself, you will have the opportunity of changing the language of the game and also to download a handout as a PDF. Notice that the download prompts a pop-up window that some browser applications will block automatically – simply click the pop-up message in your browser to allow the file to be downloaded.

On one side the facilitation guides can be used to facilitate the training. The guides contain background knowledge of the simulations as well as relevant topics for discussion. It is important that the participants do not see the guide as it contains “spoilers” on which choices are particularly beneficial which would turn focus towards the score instead of newfound knowledge and personal experience.

On the other side, the Handouts are the game's general view on PDF mode so those work as a sort of text preview of the game.

StyleTrade – is an online Actee concept. Please take a look at the video. 

The StyleTrade works this way: as a leader/trainee participating in a session including StyleTrade, the participant picks out a number (12) of statements, that she/he thinks fit her/him best as a leader and person, and discard the rest of the statements.

Behind each of the statements lies a leadership, change or communication style or any other style you might think of but the participant does not know what statement relates to what style or ignore that there is a connection between statement and kind at all.

One of the standard Actee StyleTrade is based on Goleman’s six styles of leadership.  

Instead of one of the standard Six Styles, it could be any leadership model.

Imagine a leadership model with four Leadership Roles let s call it “The 4 styles” with e.g. 25 written statements to match each Role – 100 in all. Imagine these four styles coach, player, shooter, thinker  

1. By picking “a deck” of 12 statements out of a possible 24 presented, the participant will create a “4 Role Profile” of her/his own.

This profile is interesting to dive into: it could be, that none of the chosen statements related to – let’s say – Coach, and only one related to the player, and the rest to shooter and thinker.

This process can be facilitated into both reflection and discussion of profile and talk about focus, blind spots and strengths, individually and at a group level.

2. When each of the participants - in a group session - has picked the 12 statements, it is time to swap statements between the participants in the session.

The participants will try to get rid of statements they think fits them the least, and get statements from others that fit them better. This process will drive insights into how do others see me – why do you think this statement fits me? Or thanks, I’m happy you acknowledge that side of me! This is done in the room or virtually, but always online via an individual device: smartphone, tablet, pc.

There is a lot of moving around and discussion on who do you think I am….

3. At the end, the participant will have an even more fitting “4 Role Profile” than the one they picked for themselves originally. All is done online using a device: smartphone, tablet, pc, and the Actee StyleTrade tool.

Would this be interesting to dive into?

“The 4 styles ” StyleTrade would then be your own to use for the profile you have created.

Your work:

The recommendation and work you need to do is to write 25 (or more) statements per Role – 100 all in all. Writing the 100 statements would be your job.

Statement examples: “I continuously raise my own expectations to my own performance”“I inspire others to adopt my visions”, I often prioritize the quality of the result over the employees' ownership to the task”. From Six Styles StyleTrade.

This is how easy it is to incorporate your own leadership, change, communication or alike model into Actee Styletrade.

If you want to test a Styletrade you need to register as a user for a Free Engagement subscription on Actee and then go for tools to find the game.

Note you can invite a colleague to swop with or you can do it by yourself to get your profile.

Here is a link. Log in to try the exercise.

Subscription

 

There are several reasons that will answer this question:

  1. A subscription will give you access to the games and tools of the platform which allows you to try different options depending on the subscription you choose.
  2. You will be able to build your own sessions and select the games better suit the purpose of the training (If you have a Free subscription to be able to do this you must buy a Try-off Package at least).
  3. Create your own game based on your theories and needs.
  4. The subscription also gives you access to check the statistics on your participants.
  5. Share rights as a Superuser to other associates or consultants you need to work with.  Block them when you finish as well.
  6. Put your own company logo and colors of your preference so the layout of the website will look yours completely.
  7. And last but not least, this gives you the opportunity to run specific training in different locations worldwide.

Please be aware that some of the advantages are conditioned to every plan exclusively.

 

Having an Actee Subscription is essential to using the tools to their full extent regardless of the number of sessions, you are going to run. Depending on your needs you can choose from four different subscription plans to get started with using Actee games and tools. Note that all subscriptions, except for Actee Free Learning subscriptions, are periodic.

All subscription plans are recurring, which means that your subscription will automatically be renewed at the end of your subscription period. If you have used all accesses on your subscription before the end of your subscription, you will need to buy a new subscription in order to work with learning sessions on your company subscription.

If your company has not yet a subscription plan, you can check out the prices and solutions here.

 

Getting access to creating sessions is tied up to a subscription. We offer four levels of subscriptions to choose between depending on the number of people you will onboard your subscription and how advanced you need your game learning toolbox to be.

On our price page you can check out the four levels of subscription options:

1. Free Learning
2. Engagement
3. Pro
4. Enterprise Unlimited

Choose the subscription depending on the size of your company - or the number of clients you are going to train, the extent you plan to roll out the learning program with your company subscription, as well as the advancement of the game learning toolbox you want to have access to. 

A subscription is periodic and will automatically be renewed once every year. When you have used all accesses on the subscription deal, you will have to buy a new subscription to drive sessions on the subscription.

If you are working in a consultancy, your access to working with the learning game universe will be from either the Engagement, Pro, or the  Free Learning subscription. The first two will allow you to create sessions and invite participants using a pool of accesses from the subscription. On the Free Learning subscription, you must purchase Try-it-Out packages every time you want to do a session with clients.

When does it make sense to set up a subscription plan and when should I just go with a Try-it-Out Package? 

 

A subscription: You can choose from four different subscription plans depending on the number of participants you want to onboard and depending on your level of engagement in cool learning methods and tools. The subscriptions are called Engagement, Pro  and Enterprise Unlimited can be purchased by consultancy firms and companies alike and will give access to a certain amount of users. This will allow the subscription owners to either run sessions with other companies as training - or to restrict access to the platform so that only users from within the company can join. The subscription called Pro can only be purchased by enterprises as the user access is restricted by e-mail domains added to the subscription. This is done to ensure that only users from the specific company can get access to the platform. Actee controls the domain attached to your subscription and this ensures it is only your people who can access the domain. The fourth subscription is called Free learning and will give you access to purchasing Try-it-Out packages. You are able to execute sessions on your free subscriptions but they will require payment for every session.

You can invite external consultants into your subscription as super users and give certain rights like making games for you or collecting profiles and benchmarking reports on learning and theory.

The exception to this is Superusers, who can be invited to drive sessions and work with the tools available in Actee.

 

A Try-it-Out Package: You can buy a Try-it-Out Package as one-off access. Every Try-it-Out Package gives access to up to 50 participants in one session. If you need to onboard more than 50 participants to a session, you can just buy an additional package for the purpose. But if you need to onboard an even larger number of participants for a session, you should consider if it makes sense to set up a subscription plan instead. Try-it-Out packages can be purchased from the Free Learning platform and subscriptions alike.

There are four types of users: Normal, Super User, Subscription Owner and Certified Consultant.

Normal Users: have access to the Actee Free page and any subscription they are invited to or are eligible to join via their e-mail address. Normal users cannot create their own games and have a limited toolbox and session builder compared to certified users.

Super Users: have some administrator rights on company subscriptions and partner modules in which they are tagged as super users. This type of user can create sessions on company subscriptions, create new games and keep an eye on the data modules provided in company subscriptions.


Subscription Owners: are charged with the administration of company subscriptions or partner modules. In this sense, the subscription owner is an upgraded sort of SuperUser that also handles the payment and possible upgrades of the current company subscriptions.

Certified Consultants: can create and administrate their own partner module. They will also have access to the consultant toolbox, which contains facilitation guides.

If you are working from an ActeeFree platform, you already work with many of the tools that are available to a Super User on a company subscription. In order to gain access to work with an extended catalog and administration tasks on a company subscription, you need to be invited into the subscription as a Superuser by any superuser attached to the subscription or buy your own membership.

Depending on the subscription level that the company subscription has access to, the Super User can have different rights to operate within the platform.

As a Super User, you can have access to several subscriptions as long as you are invited into the Company subscription by the subscription owners. This also applies to consultant admin modules (similar to company subscriptions but without an option to execute).

A subscription owner is the administrator of respectively a Company subscription and/or a Partner Admin Module which comes with a range of exclusive editing rights.

Every subscription as Partner Admin Module comes with one owner position! The owner is a white label admin, which means that the owner can customize the hub with color, logo, and pictures, and toolbox content. The owner also controls invoices and information about usages within the platform.

The owner can invite Super Users and allow them to invite other superusers to the subscription and control a range of administrative functions.

It is possible for an owner to transfer the ownership to a Super User. This can only be done with the help of Actee support. Call us or write an e-mail to info@actee.com if you need help with this!

You can always find the user statistics under User Admin on the Dashboard.

Consultancies are able to utilize Actee tools in two different ways depending on how much you plan to use the tools. As an external consultant, you are able to either register your own ActeeFree platform from which you can use the Game Builder and create Try-it-Out sessions that can be used once with a group of participants. The other option is to purchase either the Engagement - One off or Large - One off Package subscriptions. These subscriptions will give you a platform and a pool of licenses and sessions that can be used in training with clients. When deciding which solution is interesting to you, you should think about how many clients you are going to train throughout the next year. If you will be training more than 50 participants, you should look into the subscription solutions. See the prices here.

 

If you are going to facilitate a learning session with a customer, you need to find out if they already have a subscription. If the customer already has a subscription, you can go ahead and ask for an invitation to get access as a superuser to their subscription system from where you can drive sessions and show games designed on your own subscription or in your ActeeFree platform.

There are basically two ways you can give users access to a session

1. Get access via a company subscription with an active one.

2. By activating a Try-it-Out Package with space for 20 users access per package.

A subscription is relevant in connection to a Company Hub. Depending on your needs you can choose from three different subscription plans to get started using Actee games and tools. 

All subscription plans are recurring, which means that your subscription will automatically be renewed at the end of your subscription period. If you have used all accesses before the end of your subscription, you will need to upgrade your plan and buy a new subscription in order to work with learning sessions in the Actee universe.

If your company has not yet a subscription plan, you can check out our prices and solutions here.

Getting access to the full value of Actee is tied up to a subscription. We offer three levels of subscriptions to choose among, depending on the number of people you will have onboard and how much value you want to gain from Actee, this includes benchmark and access to tools like the game builder.  

On our price page you can check out the mentioned subscription options and the tools available in each plan:

1. Engagement
2. Pro
3. Enterprise Unlimited

Choose the subscription depending on the size of your company, the extent you plan to roll out the learning program in your company, as well as the advancement of the game learning toolbox you want to have access to. 

A subscription is recurring and will automatically be renewed once every year. When you have used all accesses on the subscription plan, you will have to buy a new subscription to drive sessions and learnings flows.

If you are working in a consultancy, your access to working with the learning game universe will be from a free Partner Admin Module. Learn more here: What is a Partner Admin Module?

 

If your payment was declined, one of the most common reasons is Do not honor - financial jargon for "The payment was declined by your card issuer, and they won't tell us why". 

To prevent this from happening again, call your card issuing bank, tell them that the transaction was declined by them (you can mention "error code 05 - do not honor") and ask them to allow future payments from Actee. 

After they confirm that future payments will go through it is recommended to wait 30 minutes before trying to pay for the subscription or session again.

It is also important to make sure that:

  • You entered the correct CVV code (the 3 digits on the back of your card).
  • You've entered the correct billing information (address, Country, etc.).
  • The card is approved for international/online purchases.
  • There are sufficient funds available.
  • The card is not expired or canceled.
  • The card has not been reported stolen or lost.

Alternatively, you can always try with a different card, as that may also do the trick.

PS: If you don't have the number of your card issuing bank, it may show on the back of your card.

The physical floorboard can be used in addition to the online Cycle Game simulation, which is used to gather all participants around a physical game board during a game session for discussions about the positions of the boats and stakeholders.

Our floorboard has been updated to ensure that the game pieces remain intact when traveling. This means that there is now a layer of foam added into the suitcase to provide stability.

It is not necessary to have our physical floorboard to play any Cycle Game. The online game board that shows the results as the player(s) progress in the game can stand alone without the physical floorboard. In a facilitation situation, the Host View tool can give the participants an overview and status of all ongoing games and the position of the different groups in a session. 

If you would like to order a floorboard, you can send us an email at info@actee.com 

  • The price for the Cycle Game floorboard including four boats with stakeholders is 2500 euros. VAT excluded.
  • The price of additional boats including stakeholders is 270 euros. VAT excluded.
  • We also provide boats in gold or green, however, the price of these is 350 euros a set. VAT excluded.
  • We can customize your floorboard as shown in the picture below (Minimum 3 pieces).

 

                                               

 

A coaching board is a board game for the table, which can be used in addition to the online Cycle Game simulation. 

It is not necessary to have our physical coaching board play any Cycle Game. NO, not at all, you can use the host view tool attached to the session builder. After making your session, this ends up in your host view here you can follow the games and activity in the system.    

The online game board that shows the results as the player(s) progress in the game can stand alone without the physical coaching board. In a facilitation situation, the host view tool can give the participants an overview and status of all ongoing games and the position of the different groups in a session. 

Read more about the session view here.

 

If you would like to order a coaching board, you can send us an email at info@actee.com 


The price for a Cycle Game coaching board including one boat with stakeholders is 400 euros. VAT excluded.

If you need an updated handout, there are two ways:

1. As a user you can download a PDF of the handout by clicking the link just before starting the relevant game.

2. As a consultant you can click the link in the session builder when you make the session. There you are able to print facilitation guides. 

If you want to have your own company design you can use the text from the PDF to make your own handout layout. 

Assuming you have created your own game the system automatically can generate handouts for your specific game. 

 

Here you can find more about how to create your own games with our tool the game builder. Click here

When does it make sense to set up a subscription plan and when should I just go with a Try-it-Out Package? 

A subscription: You can choose from 3 different subscription plans depending on the number of participants you want to onboard and depending on your level of engagement in cool learning methods and tools. A subscription means that you can't onboard users who are related to the company email domain. Actee controls the domain attached to your subscription and this ensures it is only your people who can access the domain. You can also invite external consultants into your subscription as superusers and give certain rights like making games for you or collecting profiles and benchmarking reports on learning and theory.

The exception to this is Superusers, who can be invited to drive sessions and work with the tools available in Actee. A Superuser in this context will typically be a consultant who operates from a Partner Admin Hub. 

A Try-it-Out Package: You can buy a Try-it-Out Package as one-off access. Every Try-it-Out Package gives access to up to 20 participants in one session. If you need to onboard more than 20 participants to a session, you can just buy an additional package for the purpose. But if you need to onboard an even larger number of participants for a session, you should consider if it makes sense to set up a subscription plan instead.

Data

Yes, Actee complies with all applicable encryption rules and secures your information against potential intruders.

The answer is short and simple - no. Your private digital data is safe with us.

You can use data to learn more about what your choices in the games mean. The data works to connect the learned theory with your personal preferences - which makes the learning more transferable to workplace practice. 

The games you play on your subscription will accumulate data that shows your preferences of choices and style of decision-making. 

All games are based on theory. Every time you make a choice in a game, you will learn about your choice from a theoretical perspective. Data is drawn from this theoretical framework based on your choices, which configures your profile. 

All users will develop a personal profile through the games they play. The more games you use for the purpose, the more you will learn about your preferences e.g. for work methods, workplace relations, and leadership style.   

Organizations and businesses with their own customized subscription have access to the data profiles of all game sessions on their subscription. This means that the data can be used to get an insight into the current status of the organization: E.g. where are people in a change process, what are their leadership preferences, or how do people prefer to work with a project or a process? 

All customized subscriptions will have access to the Data-Module tool, which enables you as an owner of the subscription to get an overview of your profile(s) and compare it across businesses and time. In this way, the tool can be used to set development goals and measure changes and results.

We added the FILTERS function to our sections Games and Create Game Session (when you are going to create a personalized session).

 


The function will help you to navigate through different forms of filtering going from Categories to Languages.

 

 

Please remember you have two options before starting using the filters: Your Games (designed by or for your company) and public games (everyone can see them).

Here you will find a short and concise explanation for each filter.

Categories

Here you can choose among the various options of game categories and tools we have like the cycle game, barometer, bubbles, cards, quiz, resources, and tools.

Guidance

With this, you will be able to visualize the games that count with a facilitation guide.

Time

This filter will give you hints on the amount of time approximately you have to invest playing each game, this can vary from less than an hour to more than two hours.

Sort by

The "sort by" filter will show you the games into three different categories as most played, recently played, and currently trending.

Theory

Since we have plenty of theories our games are based on, here you will find a search bar where you will write the theory of your preference, and our system will look for coincidences to guide you.

Languages


This allows you to search the criteria related to languages available for our games (Please note that the number of games can differ depending on the language chosen).

  • Session Creator: This folder is in the Facilitation tools folder. This is where you create sessions and later invite participants to join.

 

  • Session List: This is where the sessions you have created are stored. In this folder, you can edit your sessions and find an overview of what options participants have selected.

 

  • Toolbox: This is where we store files that are not directly attached to the games themselves. Here you will be able to find scripts for facilitation and theoretical insights.

  • Guest user: A user that is not obliged to register as a new user in order to attend a session and play the games there. Be aware as a certified facilitator, the user won't be shown in your statistics properly.

 

  • Reset groups: When participants join your session, the system will remember how far they have come in the game and there is no possibility of changing your choices throughout the game. However, the facilitator can reset the game for either all participants – or for a specific group.

 

  • Host View: This is your virtual game board where you can see all the groups attached to your session in a collected overview. This is your primary tool, alongside the facilitator’s guide when it comes to facilitating Actee sessions. You will be able to the scores of each group, how far they have come, and which specific options they have picked during the game.

 

  • Facilitation Guide: These guides are provided with most of the generic Actee games. They provide insights into what theoretical framework the selected game is based on and insights into how the game will react to each possible choice. You will also find tips for questions that can be asked to your participants to further the discussion of the topics they are facing. Each chapter will have an introduction and a set of questions that you can decide to use – or skip if you prefer to come up with your own questions.

 

  • Game Builder: This tool can be used to customize games and exercises to suit the needs of your clients. You will find a detailed description and a guide on how to use it in the FAQ section.

 

  • Stakeholder: These are the fictional profiles we have created based on the 6 styles of leadership from Goleman and will be the protagonists of the simulations (Everyone has their own personality and type of reaction to the situations). This is different from the participants in the sessions.

 

  • Resistance: Is the force created by the decisions the stakeholders make in counterpoint to the flow of a change, new actions or new implementations inside the game.

 

  • Theory: This is the basis of our games and is essential to handle every topic in the way is needed. Every game has a theory attached or more, from where the game will consist on.

 

  • Chapter: Our games are developed in sections called chapters where the participants will be able to take decisions towards solutions depending on several factors as the stakeholder reaction or options presented by the game.

 

  • White label: This is an option you will find interesting in terms of changing the layout of your Actee subscription where you can put your logo and colors of your brand.
