Mastering Digitalization with TOPSIM – Scale Up

Due to the increasing effects of globalization and digitalization, companies are facing new challenges. Especially established companies with many years of experience have to rethink their strategic planning and develop new business models. The beta version of our new strategic business simulation TOPSIM – Scale Up is available for testing in the TOPSIM – Cloud from May 11th until the end of July 2020.

What is TOPSIM – Scale Up about?

In the business simulation TOPSIM – Scale Up the participants act as managers of a former manufacturer of scooters. Due to the increasing influence of globalization and digitalization, they must develop a sustainable business model for new electric scooters. The previously successful business strategy must be revised accordingly and at the same time the production and sale of electric scooters must be implemented. In the business simulation, the participants learn to deal with disruptions and volatility in the market, complex decision-making situations and to scale a new business model.

What is the best way to apply TOPSIM – Scale Up be?
