ITpreneurs and GamingWorks Team Up With Immersive Business Simulations

ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2013) - ITpreneurs, a leading provider of learning solutions for IT best practices, and GamingWorks, an industry leader in designing, developing and deploying professional business simulations are working in partnership to enrich IT best practices training with the usage of business simulations.

This new partnership allows ITpreneurs' Partners to tap into the entire GamingWorks portfolio and benefit from an extensive range of business simulations for various IT best practices, including ITIL®, PRINCE2®, COBIT® and BiSL® (business simulations range from Apollo 13 (Service Management), Grab@Pizza (Business IT Alignment), Challenge of Egypt (Project Management). They will benefit by incorporating experiential learning exercises into traditional courseware and leveraging this to generate new revenue streams and adding value by offering cost-effective solutions, even in tough economic times.

"A Business simulation game is a form of experiential learning, or learning-by-doing. People from different departments, representing the complete end-to-end service delivery chain, can be brought together to participate in a game environment. People learn, in a number of game rounds, to translate theory into practice. We are delighted to team up ITpreneurs to bring learning innovation to the market." - Paul Wilkinson, Co-Founder, GamingWorks.

For more than 10 years, Paul Wilkinson and Jan Schilt (Co-Founders of GamingWorks) have built an international network of over 250 partners, who have helped hundreds of organizations tackle business challenges and support organizational learning and development with business simulations. Effective deployment of business simulations has helped many organizations translate ITSM best practice theory into practice, create buy-in to an improvement initiative and empower people to improve the way they work -- increasing the return on value of investment in training.

"GamingWorks has one of the most robust and comprehensive portfolios of business simulations on the market and we, at ITpreneurs, are excited about our strategic partnership with them. It's a partnership born of a shared desire to lead innovation in IT Best Practices training with exciting learning interventions. Training is much more than just earning a certificate. Business simulations are powerful vehicles to make learning stick and have proven to support organizational change initiatives and best practice implementation programs. Besides offering GamingWorks' broad portfolio, ITpreneurs will be offering the next level of ITIL training, using simulations, as well as developing new simulations together with GamingWorks. This allows us to take IT best practices to the next level." - Sukhbir Jasuja, CEO, ITpreneurs.
