    [Providers] #DevLearn-409: Soft-Skills Simulations – A Road Map for Success
    An effort was made to map the simulation to the structured training that had been provided earlier, and this analysis was assembled into a table that reflected the scoring, issues and challenges the learners would face. 2. After the scores are displayed, a recap is given that evaluates the learner’s performance and provides feedback on the decisions they made, and what might have been better choices to make in that situation. Summary: Frito-Lay built a compelling soft-skills simulation using mostly-traditional branching techniques and Articulate Storyline. Lessons Learned.
