Strategic Execution Business Simulation

According to leadership expert Ram Charan, 70% of strategic failures are due not to a lack of smarts or vision, but to poor execution. That’s because no matter how well-crafted a strategy is, the leaders and individual contributors in the organization need to execute it.

To help organizations better implement their strategies, Advantexe has developed an interactive business simulation called Leading Strategic Execution business simulation (LSE).

Leading Strategic Execution™ is a two-round, digital business simulation in which participants align, communicate, motivate, and drive their direct and indirect teams to execute the organizational strategy in order to achieve revenue, growth, and profit targets.

How Does the Simulation Work?

Participants assume the role of an Operations Manager for ABC, Inc and in this role must translate the CEO’s high level strategy into priority initiatives for their Business Unit and then lead their people to execute flawlessly.

Faced with over 25 different business scenarios that are based on research of real-life situations, learners weave their way through an interactive story line that unfolds based upon the learner’s decisions. Learners react to events, interact with virtual colleagues, and directly respond to their teams challenges.

At the end of each simulation round, learners receive extensive written feedback on each decision and a simulation score card that is tied to the  competencies critical to a manager’s ability to lead strategic execution including;

  • Setting Objectives
  • Managing Initiatives
  • Coaching and Mentoring
  • Evaluating Performance
