Description
This proven 1-3 day Strategic Decision Making Simulation workshop helps team to pull in the same direction, build cross-functional cooperation, and develop a big picture understanding for more effective strategic decision-making.

In this proven and highly experiential strategic decision making simulation, teams manage their own capital-intensive companies and compete for the same customers in a rapidly changing marketplace. Participants act as finance, production, marketing, and corporate intelligence.

Teams of 4 to 6 must take over a company, grow with scarce resources, battle for positions, and improve profitability – in good times and bad. It’s a customizable and dynamic challenge of analysis, strategy, execution, and navigation to make the right investments at the right time.

Most leaders call this comprehensive simulation a “micro-MBA” for their decision-making teams in the areas of strategic planning, teamwork, and business finance.

Objectives
Through the comprehensive decision-making simulation, participants gain:

  • Functional expertise of how financial decisions impact overall business – and how business decisions are reflected financially.
  • Higher productivity through better teamwork and communication.
  • Deeper understanding of strategy and tactical initiatives.
  • Improved decision-making and problem-solving for optimal allocation of limited resources.
  • Increased responsiveness to customer needs.
  • Stronger business literacy and financial acumen.

Target Audience
Managers, leaders, and key coworkers who want to develop their business strategy skills, analytical thinking, decision-making, and financial acumen.

We recently hired LSA to help us take our client delivery methodology to the next level as we continue to grow and help our clients succeed. The custom strategy and design session exceeded our expectations. They really understood our business and delivered within tight time frames.  They were the best I have seen for this type of complex, visible and strategic work. LSA’s ability to get a group of 20+ executives from around the globe on the same page, push their thinking to new heights, and ensure an executable plan was excellent. I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to take their strategy and strategic execution to the next level.

We reviewed the top Leadership Development offerings and selected LSA’s 12-month Leadership Program based upon the value and systemic approach. The feedback on the program, approach, and results was phenomenal. While other programs may be better known, they were more theoretical and did not compare in terms of practicality, quality, and results.

We selected LSA Global over 5 other companies to help our key executives improve their overall communication and executive presentation capabilities.

Having tripled in size and recently merged, LSA helped our executive team to increase our level of strategic alignment, to solidify our new direction, and to push our agency forward. As we look to rapidly scale, the clear, actionable, and critical few strategic moves combined with how we differentiate ourselves to our top accounts and target clients has really set us on a great path to success. This is exactly what we needed to get to the next level.

It was a challenge to find a consultant with an approach to performance improvement that fit our unique culture and style. We were pleasantly surprised to discover LSA’s depth of expertise in the fields of motivation, developmental coaching and performance management and measurement.

LSA seamlessly integrated those components without our folks feeling like the intervention was forced. They understood what we were trying to accomplish, helped us clarify our objectives, and created a solid, refreshing approach that quickly got us moving and engage at all levels across the organization.Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a true strategy and implementation partner in LSA.
