Industry-specific Business Simulations
In addition to our standard product portfolio, we have developed several industry-specific simulations for our corporate customers in recent years. Contact us to learn more!
The business simulation represents the car part manufacturing industry in the US market. Five companies compete in the marketplace and each has their own business model, strategic focus & competitive advantage. From a long established and traditional player to a startup – each team will be challenged to lead their company to success in a volatile, competitive environment.
In Digital Insurance, participants have to think about their company’s digitization strategy and how to handle sensitive data. The teams should consider the new smart lifestyle of the customers and assert themselves in the rapidly changing market with their innovative ideas.
The business simulation represents the banking industry in the US market. Five companies compete in the marketplace and each has their own business model, strategic focus & competitive advantage. Every team will be challenged to lead their company to success in a volatile, competitive environment.
In this simulation game, participants take on the role of change management consultants and accompany the newly appointed head of a corporate department. The aim is to address employees individually through communication and measures, to inform and motivate them in order to increase their performance and to anchor the change sustainably.
In the simulation, teams take over the management of a nursing home and have to make operational decisions and considers trends and challenges in order to remain competitive on the market. At the same time, they should take into account the needs of residents and caregivers.
The simulation allows to take a helicopter view of the system in the US, its major elements and processes – and thus demonstrates the complex interactions between the key players. It highlights the difficulty of balancing individual vs. ecosystem interests and respective decision-making.
