“After years of personally working with LSA around finance for non-financial managers, our company engaged LSA to do an experiential financial business simulation.
Very crucial to the success of this program was the work done upfront to discuss our needs and to interview key members of our organization so that the program specifically met our goals.
Wonderful job as always.”
Frank Abbott | Chief Financial Officer | Community Health Group
“This financial business simulation successfully supports our efforts to establish a value oriented culture among all employees. That’s what will make the difference in performance in the marketplace!“
Chief Financial Officer | Siemens
“The feedback from the financial business simulation was fantastic.
It perfectly demystified the fear of finance, increased financial confidence, and greatly raised people’s understanding of the financial, operational, and business impact of decisions and investments.“
Mark Davis | Finance Director, Global Supply Chain | Spirax-Sarco Engineering
This proven financial business simulation teaches both managers and individual contributors to understand the big picture of business operations, cash flow, and how individual decisions and actions impact profits over 3-4 simulated fiscal years — thereby increasing financial business acumen.
It is not a lecture. It is a “hands on” and experiential financial business simulation in which participants work through a variety of exercises focused on key business drivers and the concepts of business acumen, financial literacy, cash management, operational decision-making, working capital, capacity utilization, and collaboration.
They get to deal with critical issues — such as which activities add value for customers, reducing cycle time and inventory, supplier relations, investment in new technology, efficient utilization of resources, and the impact of different business strategies on revenues.
After participating in the financial business simulation, participants understand the fundamentals of business finance and how capital circulates throughout the company.
Participants are able to interpret financial reports, understand financial ratios, and appreciate how their daily actions and decisions impact profitability. And they have a better overall understanding of business and of how their company makes money.
Sales participants will be able to apply the same principles to their customers’ businesses and will gain a competitive advantage by demonstrating their ability to improve profitability.
By actually moving capital around the simulated company and dealing with real business issues, participants acquire:
Managers, individuals, project leaders, teams, and salespeople who will benefit from developing a solid business sense that can help guide their decisions in everyday work.
