Simulation Kits

Vikāra has a rich history of developing highly interactive curricula and training methodologies in the form of simulation kits. Vikāra’s premier simulation kits include Market Systems Simulation, Agri-Inputs Simulation, and  Supply Chain Simulation. The impacts are salient when Vikāra uses these high-quality and interactive kits during in-person trainings. Project staff from (Headquarter to Field) can benefit as well as private sector actors.

Market Systems Simulation

The Market Systems Simulation™ is a highly interactive, experiential training that introduces development practitioners to market systems development approaches. The result is a better understanding of market development intervention options that can be implemented by a project and a better understanding of the overall systemic change that such interventions can bring. The Market Systems Simulation™ is designed to recreate the realities of running a donor-funded development project within the four walls of a training room and give project staff the opportunity to make the kinds of decisions - and deal with the consequences of those decisions - that they must make in the real world. Participants are guided through how to apply their learning within their real-life job roles. Vikāra can facilitate trainings with the Market Systems Simulation kit in either English or Spanish.

Agri-Inputs Simulation

The Agri-Inputs Simulation Training is a highly interactive, experiential training that introduces participants to the systemic implications of new distribution and promotional business investment strategies that could be made by agribusinesses in the agri-inputs sector to result in business growth, improved sales, and better relationships with customers. The Agri-Inputs Market Simulation is designed to recreate the realities of agri-business within the four walls of a training room and give participants the opportunity to make the kinds of decisions -- and deal with the consequences of those decisions -- that agribusinesses must make in the real world. Participants are guided through how to apply their learning to real-life, including clarity on the implications of systemic change.  Vikāra can facilitate trainings with the Agri-Inputs Simulation kit in English, Bengali, Spanish and Portuguese. This simulation is designed to be run with development practitioners, as well as other market actors such as agricultural inputs firms.

Supply Chain Simulation

The Supply Chain Simulation Training introduces participants to the systemic implications of new buying and promotional business investment strategies that can be implemented by buyers and other supply chain management firms, resulting in business growth, improved quality and quantity of products, and better relationships with suppliers. The Supply Chain Simulation is designed to recreate the realities of agri-business within the four walls of a training room and give participants the opportunity to make the kinds of decisions -- and deal with the consequences of those decisions -- that buyers must make in the real world. Participants are guided through how to apply their learning to real-life, including clarity on the implications of systemic change. Vikāra can facilitate trainings with the Supply Chain Simulation kit in English, Bengali, Spanish and Portuguese. This simulation is designed to be run with development practitioners, as well as other market actors such as agricultural buying firms.
