The Exchange

The Exchange™

New to our line of experiential learning simulations, The Exchange™ challenges participants to work together within an environment of complex data, ambiguity and time pressure. Each participant is a member of a team that earns points by trading Combos. The Combos are formed by assembling colored medallions into predefined groupings. The Combos have an initial value as well as emerging values and liabilities. The assignment is to collect as many points as possible by trading Combos over four trading sessions. To succeed participants must engage in critical thinking, work effectively with their colleagues, mine available data, recognize emerging trends, maintain flexibility and act decisively. For years DLI’s experiential learning activities have been used by sophisticated facilitators to create situations where participants can become better leaders and The Exchange™ is the next step in this direction.
