Insurance Challenge!™ Product Details


A Management and Leadership Development Course for the Insurance Industry

Over a period of several days, course participants will be introduced to the fundamental business tools needed to achieve long-term profitability and competitive advantage. Participants will be challenged to apply these tools in a computer-simulated environment (a “virtual” insurance conglomerate) where their performance will be evaluated by a marketplace that has been created by competing teams.

At the center of this “Learn by Doing” course is the Insurance Challenge! exercise. In Insurance Challenge!, participants will be immersed in a learning activity unlike any they have experienced before. Over a period of several simulated years, teams will be challenged to manage a struggling Insurance Carrier and Agency Network, and compete for customers and qualified employees (producers, underwriters, support staff).

At the end of each decision period, teams receive performance feedback in the form of financial and industry reports. Participants will learn how to use these performance barometers to grow the business and improve bottom-line performance.

“I would like to congratulate you on the best European DOT result so far. Thanks to the trainers and DDM´s who have done an outstanding job bringing the RedlineTM Business Simulation to European dealers. I am especially pleased as this is not a one-off training event, but was followed up by the Business Planning tool developed by European Dealer Development. With the practice and thoughts out of the simulation, dealers should have identified gaps in their business, and are following up utilising the planning tool to present their five year plan to HDE subsidiaries. This will lead step by step into the European composite system to be launched by the DDM team.”
