Pracownia Gier Szkoleniowych in cooperation with Karol Olejniczak from EGO – Evaluation for Government Organizations – has designed a game called Knowledge Brokers. The simulation is addressed to public administration representatives. Its goal is to improve the process of preparing and transmitting research reports drawn up for the need of ministries and local units. On February 20th the game was played by the University of Warsaw students as a form of test to complete the course on ‘Organization and management theory and practice in the public sector’.

In the Knowledge Brokers game participants become members of a team managing an evaluation unit. Their task is to analyze the current status of 4 undertakings in progress and prepare reports related to given inquiries. The challenge is to prepare the reports on the basis of adequate research plans and address them to appropriate recipients in the required form. The final objective is to lead to decisions being made mainly on knowledge and reliable data and not on decision-makers’ intuition.
During the game participants learn how to adapt research plans to given problems and get to know decision makers’ preferences related to the form how knowledge is transferred. Skills acquired during the game can be useful and help participants prepare reports in real-life situations.
