Investigate – a PwC game

Play the role of investigator and experience a business crisis first-hand

The ever evolving global regulatory landscape is a constant challenge for all organisations. Increased activity by law enforcement bodies, government agencies and regulators means that your organisation can face the intense scrutiny of an investigation, with no warning, and with huge reputational consequences.

The need for an effective compliance program, appropriate culture and behaviours, and to react decisively in the right way when things go wrong can be vital to your organisation’s survival.

How would you react to a dawn raid, or a serious whistle-blower allegation? The regulator is in the building, what do you do?

About Investigate

Play Investigate and you will experience a realistic simulation of a regulatory crisis. You will experience how an investigation unfolds in a time pressured environment, the decisions that need to be made along the way, and the sources of evidence at your disposal as you build your understanding of the case.

You will search e-mails, interview suspects, analyse data and make real time decisions to compile evidence and identify the suspects. When you submit your report you'll find out just how well your team performed!

How to play Investigate

An Investigate session involves playing the game in a facilitated workshop with teams of up to four people.

Players have access to a web-based investigations dashboard, and work together in their team to help the company’s board understand whether fraud has taken place, and who was involved.

Teams compete against each other to undertake the best investigation and can see each other’s progress in real time. Players then submit their report and find out how they have performed.
