BioLife | Wicked Problems [DEGREE] [LC]

The BioLife Wicked Problems LiveCase creates a lively scenario in which to explore, examine and reflect on leadership and group dynamics under pressure.

Learning objectives

1) Experience and explore, examine and reflect on leadership and group dynamics under pressure. 2) Navigate uncertainty in a chaotic and high stress situation. 3) Practice decision-making when time is short and the stakes are high. 4) Juggle the complexities of formal and informal authority. 5) Reflect on and analyze personal and group performance. 6) Assess and provide structured feedback on the performance of peers. 7) Test and analyze leadership presence and style. The BioLife Wicked Problems LiveCase creates a lively and fun scenario in which to explore, examine and reflect on leadership and group dynamics under pressure. At BioLife, a leading-edge CRISPR (gene editing) biotech startup, a breakthrough anti-aging drug holds great promise for the company and its parent firm Pharma Solutions. However, as the launch of the drug Xanformin approaches, events at BioLife begin to spin out of control, centering around the controversial activities of the scientist who led the drug development. At the outset of the LiveCase, Learners are divided into two groups: the BioLife C-Suite executives who grapple with events as they unfold, and the ‘Observers’ who maintain a watchful presence, assessing the actions and group dynamics of the C-Suite. In this way, the C-Suite executives experience the additional pressure of leadership ‘under the microscope,’, while the Observers must critically assess the performance of their colleagues as they work together to chart a course through uncertainty, chaos and conflict. BioLife LiveCase combines immersive, interactive storytelling using the LiveCase web application with group activities, tasks and role plays to keep Learners engaged, challenged and entertained. For Educators, the story that unfolds combines with the C-Suite-Observers’ dynamic to provide rich material for stimulating debrief sessions and an intense, memorable learning experience. Particularly suited to MBA and executive learning programmes, it can be conducted in person or online.
