What is EVOLVE?
Learning comes through post reflective questions - based on the observations made during the game play and skills pass-down that can be directly applied to the game to test their mastery.
Evolve is a multiplayer leadership development game designed to challenge leadership ability to handle VUCA through collaborative management strategies.
The game evolves with its protagonists and presents tougher challengers as it progresses.
Evolve simulates a scenario and uses game mechanics to trigger natural responses to situations.
The entire game-play is dependent on the decisions made by the team which has the potential of impacting the way in which the entire game unfolds.

“I have gone through a lot of these kinds of training in the past and I have to say that this was one of the most put together experiences that we had. I felt that the game was very well designed there were a lot of realistic scenarios built in and lots of them we didn’t think until we were passed the critical point when we realised that it was actually a very clear relationship with the reality”
Madhavi B, Head Internal Communications, Standard Chartered
“Traditionally, in any learning participants are prone to putting their best front forward and being a version of themselves that is perfected for social and professional settings. This format of learning is game changing as it brings to fore the true personality of participants – offering themselves a chance to see themselves as they naturally are – a very important step in learning to evolve. I consider Evolve an enabler more than a training module”
Aravind G, Program Manager, Motorola Solutions
“Evolve can be used as a strategy tool for any industry… it cuts horizontally across all verticals. It is a program to think strategically and in every single vertical of business there is a component of strategy, so it can be used by many industries”
Datuk W Fusil, Chairman & CEO, Mesiniaga
From perspective of team building, I think this is one of the best team building session that I've ever attended. It is almost real life to touch everything that we do every day in the office. At the beginning, I was a bit skeptical about the game but as we proceeded, I realized that whatever we learn from the game, could be used to practice in our daily life. I would certainly recommend this to other leaders.
