Virtual Reality (VR) is changing the way we experience digital content. One of the key aspects of this technology is presence: it feels like you are really there, immersed in another world. But how can this best be harnessed in business?
Real-time collaboration – Shared workspaces
Spatial Memory – Learn quickly and retain more information though muscle memory and contextual experiences
Unlimited Do-Overs – Master tasks through repetition
Risk Management – Train for high-risk procedures in a safe environment
Make impossible scenarios possible – Train in ways that would be impossible, unsafe or too costly in real life.
Learn soft skills and develop insights and empathy.
VR Training: Learning by doing. Interactive training scenarios for customer experience training.
So what’s the first step?
Think of some business areas where you think VR can have a positive impact on productivity.
Design a pilot project so you can assess the effectiveness of VR in this area. A pilot can help you gain experience with VR as a medium and get a first mover advantage in your industry. There are a lot of case studies to draw inspiration from.
Review the pilot, make improvements and then roll-out across the organization.
