A global strategy game carried out with highly effective guidance from the trainer and supported by one of the best online game in the market. It’s the perfect experience to train you and your team on all aspects involved in managing an international company operation: from Strategy to Marketing, Production, Supply Chain, Tax and Accounting, Finance, HR, and Sales decisions.

  • Objectives

    The purpose of this simulation-based course is to provide a hands-on experience, a discussion platform, and a forum of ideas, on the journey of integrating previously acquired functional area-specific knowledge, to avoid common silos-driven visions and assure a global business perspective.
    One of the most critical skills a manager needs to develop as he/she moves upward in the organizational hierarchy is the ability to align various organizational departments and functions into a common goal. Specialization gives place to a multidisciplinary approach.

    Specifically, the game aims at:
    - Increasing the understanding of the implications of a global business operation
    - Enhancing the capability to comprehend the interaction among functional areas
    - Improving the ability to make company-wide decisions
    - Training decision making processes under time pressure
    - Further developing team-work, negotiation, and leadership skills.
