The strategy development simulation is unique in that it is based around the real projects of your organisation: What will your portfolio of products and services be made up of in 2025? What will your organisational structures look like in 2025? If we were to engage in acquisitions, which organisations will we consider using which strategic considerations?
These and similar questions relating to organisational strategy enables participants to develop in their real environment and to align strategic projects to operational efficiency. The first step is an in-depth analysis of the current parameters for strategy development, including both the strengths and weaknesses of one’s own organisation as well as the market and competitive forces that prevail. The next step is to determine the trends in which the strategic considerations need to be evaluated.
The session will be led with a variety of strategic instruments including SWOT analysis, Porters Five Forces, MC Kinsey-Portfolio-Matrix, utility analysis, cost-benefit analysis and strategy wheel in conjunction with decision and structural aids. Based on this information a strategy is then formed step-by-step. As a result, a clearer picture of the strategic objectives and steps that need to be taken to achieve these goals emerges in a virtual environment.
This engagement with real considerations in the context of one’s own organisation, on the one hand leads to factual clarity about relevant strategic questions participants bring with them. On the other, it also engages participants in concrete strategic decision making and how to align these strategies in an operational context, which they will practice at length.
