Advantexe customized a business acumen program for a leading technology company’s onboarding process. The program integrated a business simulation to provide new hires with a broad perspective of the company, its strategy, and what potential effect the new hires will have on the success of that strategy.
The simulation covered a four year period and explored the importance of having a clear strategy and the actions required to fully execute that strategy. After each simulated year, the participants received feedback on their decisions - seeing the trade-offs between short- and long-term decision-making and the interrelationship between the different parts of the business in implementing their strategy.
Advantexe’s learning modules introduced participants to key business acumen topics such as strategic planning, marketing, sales, supply chain management, and financial management.
The learning journey included pre- and post work and was rated a 4.87 out of 5 for developing business acumen skills, cross functional awareness, relationship building and for allowing participants to experience how their daily decisions impact the bottom line.
