Workshop ‘Data-driven organizing’ simulations

A data-driven organizing simulation is a three-four hour workshop in which professionals learn how data-driven organizingn with IoT, blockchain, smart contracts and AI (together also called the digital assembly line) work through an interactive simulation game. In addition, a clear overview is given of what the IoT, blockchain technology and smart contracts will have for an influence on organizations. There is also room for exchanging ideas with colleagues from about the possibilities and the impact of data-driven organizing.

The objectives of this workshop are:

  • To acquire basic knowledge about new operating models, data-drieven organizing, blockchain technology, smart contracts and blockchain organizing in a short time.
  • Understand the basics behind the digital assembly technology.
  • Learn how the digital assembly line deals with privacy, reliability and data integrity.
  • Learn what the current and future possibilities are .
  • Be prepared for data-driven organizing and applications in organizations.
  • Establish contact and discuss with other professionals who are interested in this theme.

Target audience
Higher educated managers and financial-, logistics-, HR- and other professionals working in companies and government. Self-employed people such as management consultants.

This workshop is especially important for professionals who are or want to be involved in the design and development of blockchain technology in their organizations, and want to understand what this disruptive technology means for their function.

No technical knowledge or knowledge of blockchain is required. The workshop and game is specifically designed for non-technicals.


30 minutes | Introduction

  • Get to Know each other
  • Introduction and context
  • What is data-driven organizing and why it is important

90 minutes | Simulation Game
Participants play the role of companies that have decided to form a consortium and contribute to a common information- and transaction system with blockchain technology and smart contracts. They follow a fictional scenario in which they experience the advantages of a blockchain-based digital assembly line in order to improve their decision-making possibilities.

As they race selfishly to get their claims on a block, they also take unselfish actions to ensure that the system continues to flow, in accordance with how a digital assembly line in an ecosystem works. The tactical nature of business simulation increases involvement and accelerates learning.

60 minutes (incl. break) | data-driven organizing, blockchain and digital transformation 

  • Digital transformation and the impact on your function/organization
  • Practical applications of blockchain and smart contracts
  • What does a digital seembly line means for you?
  • Questions and dialogue

In-house program
The program can be given both in-house and by means of a registration per person. In case of in-house, the workshop is always composed with the client / participants in consultation and after an intake interview.

Duration of the workshop

  • Three hours or a day part
  • When the Simulation Game is part of a (day) course or training, it takes two hours.

The workshop is very interactive. In addition to the theory, the simulation game will take 90 minutes.


  • Required: beamer and screen
  • Laptops

The workshop does not require preparation of the participants.

Participants receive the book ‘Blockchain Organizing for Managers’.
Participants need a laptop orr mobile smartphone for a simple app.

Group size
To be able to play the simulation game, a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 participants are required.

The result of this workshop is a good basic knowledge of the blockchain-based digital assembly line, the possible applications in the financial, logistics, HR- or management field and the significance for organizations.

Next step
Possible next steps are:

  • Weconomics learning-working program
  • Participating in Weconomics network
