About Training Session's Serious Smiley Game

The Serious Smiling Game is a role-playing game designed to simulate discussions within an ad hoc working group in an imaginary standardisation organisation. It aims to cultivate soft skills crucial in standardisation processes, emphasising:

  • Argumentation skills
  • Strategic positioning
  • Building compromise
  • Fostering common understanding

Standardisation is a multifaceted discipline with both practical applications and growing academic significance. Incorporating serious games into standardisation training programs can prove to be a prudent choice. These serious games, crafted for educational purposes rather than mere entertainment, provide a highly effective training approach in this field.

The Serious Smiling Game is scheduled to be published on HSbooster.eu soon, making it accessible to the public. It will be the only completely free standardisation game available for use in training programs. In addition to providing the game for public use, training sessions will be conducted, and facilitators will be engaged as required to assist in its implementation.

Share insights boost standardisation teaching for enhanced knowledge valorisation.
