Sage and Bodyswaps Team Up for VR-Based Negotiation Simulations

Sage announced the following:

Global academic publisher Sage and virtual reality (VR) platform provider Bodyswaps have collaborated to introduce a new series of innovative VR simulations designed for business students and related fields who need to master the art of negotiation and conflict management. …

The experience includes three modules—Laying the Groundwork for Negotiation, Approach and Mindset, and Gaining Influence and Value in Negotiations—each approximately 25 minutes in length. Users are presented with life-like avatars playing the roles of VR coaches to help facilitate self-reflection or illustrate best practices. Additional characters engage in real-life negotiation scenarios to encourage knowledge and skills development via repeated practice. Unique to this experience is the incorporation of AI-powered feedback and the opportunity to review interactions from the perspective of the other party, offering valuable learning opportunities. 

For more information, read the press release.
