"Capturing group dynamics and collective thought process efficiently can create phenomenal impact in today’s business environment," said Vikas Joshi, chairman and managing director of Harbinger Group. "Managers often need to run discussions and involve their teams to enable innovation, collaborative decision-making, and getting buy-ins.

The new pack adds activities that elicit audience participation, such as brainstorming, parking of ideas and collaborative prioritizing. It also adds activities that enable structuring of complex thoughts and ideas, such as T-chart and Mind-Map.

"The Business Activities Pack makes YawnBuster an essential tool for presenters wanting to engage their audience to create meaningful discussions," said Seema Chaudhary, president of Harbinger Knowledge Products. "All the activities that you see in YawnBuster bring the audience and the speaker closer together, like inside classrooms. With Business Activities Pack, the context of that discussion moves to seminars and meeting rooms."

Harbinger Knowledge Products' leading software product, Raptivity, enables instructors to easily create highly interactive eLearning content, including games, simulations, 3D objects, videos and even "virtual worlds" that bring traditional subjects like history, science and mathematics to life.
