Everything you need to get started with Zombie Outbreak, including a comprehensive facilitator guide and six print self assessments. Additional self assessments may be purchased separately.
Following the introduction of the survival scenario, participants are challenged to rank six action options and 15 survival items - first as individuals and then a second time as a team. Participants compare their Team Scores to the Best Individual Score and expert rationale to determine if synergy was achieved.

It also helps teams to develop vital group-process skills such as interpersonal communication and problem solving.
The Zombie Outbreak Facilitator Guide includes everything trainers need to lead the simulation and classroom training workshop, from comprehensive background information and expert rationale, to a step-by-step workshop outline, action planning, a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, and sample Participant Guide.
