enParadigm Knowledge Solutions, CIIE, IIM Ahmedabad | | The Strategic Simulation Workshop Who it is for The Strategic Simulation Workshop is one of our flagship offerings for high potential GM / AVP / VP level managers who are being looked upon as future business leaders, and moving into roles interfacing with more than one functional area. What problem we are solving Over several years, a senior manager starts having a ‘siloed’ approach to decision making, where s/he approaches a business problem from the point of view of his/her past experience in a particular function, thus losing out on the holistic picture, or the ‘helicopter view’, required to formulate and implement the organization’s business strategy. How we solve it The workshop provides a real life feel of integrated management by combining the soft skills of leadership, people management, communication and negotiation, with the hard skills of planning, forecasting, marketing, finance, quality and operations. Participants run virtual companies in cross-functional teams and formulate and implement a business strategy in a highly competitive simulated marketplace..
