Supporting Team

Adventure Instructors
In the Outbound Training (OBT) Programs, the simulations also include adventure activities, navigational treks and other expeditionary modules. The activity execution and safety aspects are managed by certified adventure instructors who have been trained at either of the two leading institutes namely, Nehru Institute of Mountaineering (NIM), Uttarkashi or Vajpayee Institute of Mountaineering, Manali. Safety gear and adventure equipment of the highest quality is used while maintaining multi-layer safety norms.

Program Co-ordinator
For seamless functioning and logistics management, each workshop is managed by an experienced program co-ordinator who is a post graduate with multiyear experience in event management and public relations.

Kolb's Experiential Learning Cycle used by Mavraac in their Outbound Training Programs.
  • The training programs are mainly experiential in nature transcending just lectures and PPTs. The workshops are highly interactive and emphasis is on doing, experimenting and learning so that understanding of concepts is strong and transfer is effective. The balance of theory and practice creates a stimulating and challenging learning environment.

  • Kolb's experiential learning cycle is followed as a general format for bringing out natural behaviors, internalization of concepts and later implementing at the workplace.

  • Besides in-house corporate training workshops conducted at client's facility, Mavraac conducts Outbound Training Programs (popularly known as OBT).

  • Each corporate training program is customized to the specific brief of a client after a detailed training need analysis to assess the gap between performance and objectives.

  • Management assessment instruments are used before and during the training.

  • Corporate training workshops are also conducted on specific OD Interventions.

  • Adult learning principles are adopted which draw from the participant's life experiences and enhance self-directed motivational experiential learning and move one towards creative problem solving.

  • Role plays, adventure activities and simulations form an important part of the workshops. 

  • Case studies, exercises and management games are used to help in clarifying concepts. 

  • SOAR, AI, innovative methods of collaborative inquiry, discussion, debrief and self assessment formats are used.

  • Tools and templates ensure effective post-program implementation and experimentation of concepts learnt.

    ROI METHODOLOGY: Donald Kirkpatrick's four-level framework along with Jack Philip's 5th level of evaluation can be applied.
    Evaluation Levels
    Level 1: Reaction and Planned Action. (Measures participant satisfaction with the program and captures planned actions.)
    Level 2: Learning. (Measures changes in knowledge, skills and attitudes.)
    Level 3: Application and Implementation. (Measures changes in on-the-job behavior and progress with application.)
    Level 4: Business Impact. (Captures changes in business impact measures.)
    Level 5: Return on Investment. (Compares program monetary benefits to the program costs.)
    The 5th level represents steps in cost-benefit analysis. It converts Level 4 measures to a monetary value and compares it with the program costs, by measuring monetary gain in KPIs (Attrition, Conflict, Team Performance, Customer Retention, Resource Utilization, Output per man-hour, Turnover, Profitability).
