This proven 1.5 to 2-day Strategic Decision Making Simulation workshop helps team to pull in the same direction, build cross-functional alignment, 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 collectively 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.
With hundreds of operational and strategic decisions to make under heavy competitive pressure, teams are challenged to make tough choices with limited resources and demanding time constraints. In this proven decision-making simulation, participants gain:
Typical decisions participants face include when to invest, how many markets to pursue, whether to develop new products or maintain existing ones, if it makes sense to be a market leader or an early follower, and when to enter markets.
Managers, Senior Leaders, Supervisors, Sales Professionals, and Key Individual Contributors who want to develop their business strategy skills, analytical thinking, decision-making, and financial acumen.

We have had a very beneficial partnership with LSA. Their recent Leadership Development Program helped us to identify, develop, and retain top leaders. It was instrumental in helping take our company and our key people to the next level. I would recommend them to anyone looking to truly develop and retain top talent.
Vice President of Operations
LSA worked with our Executive Leadership Team to help create strategic clarity and alignment as we look to increase our growth rate and unlock innovation. They masterfully handled very complex, challenging, and high stakes leaders, decisions, and cultural nuances to help us identify what matters most and move toward one unified direction.
Their practical, straightforward, and client-centric approach was refreshing. I highly recommend them to any executive team looking to get aligned to create even higher performance. They are lights out awesome!

Debbie Von Raesfeld
Director and HR Business Partner
Thank you to LSA Global for their partnership and support in helping us to design and roll-out highly needed and valuable leadership and management development programs that fit our unique situation.
I personally have partnered with LSA Global at four of my previous companies. It continues to be a delight.
We look forward to partnering with them for a long time to develop our managers and leaders.
VP Human Resources
As a high growth agency with cutting edge talent, we hired LSA Global to help clarify our strategy and work with our executive leadership team to help implement strategic changes in a way that made sense for our unique culture.
The work was so successful that we also hired them to coach our key leaders. LSA has been instrumental in helping us transition to a new leadership team and triple revenue. In this age of useless consultants, I highly recommend their practical and business-oriented approach to strategy, culture, and talent.
At a time of change in our marketplace, LSA Global did an exceptional job helping our executive team create strategic clarity by helping us to define, clarify, and prioritize our corporate vision, mission, values, differentiation, target clients, strategic priorities, success metrics and key roles.
They beautifully navigated a very difficult and fuzzy situation, respectfully cleared out all of the cultural elephants, and shared impactful insights and leadership development theories along the way. They have transformed our business.
President & CEO
Our relationship with LSA is extremely valuable.
We worked closely with LSA to customize critical Management Training Programs to meet our unique business needs.
I’d recommend LSA to any company looking for first class and high quality leadership and management training assessment, design, delivery, and follow-through.
Vice President of Human Resources
LSA Global has been a great partner in helping us move toward being “the leading developer of talent in the service performance management industry.”
I have engaged LSA to help develop best-in-class programs in the areas of: Executive On-boarding, Manager Training, Sales Training and Coaching, Employee Engagement, and Instructional Design.
They have consistently met or exceeded my (very) high expectations and are always responsive to my needs to increase performance, engagement, customer satisfaction, and sales growth.
Senior Director, Training & Development
Having taken on a new executive leadership role, one of my first calls was to LSA Global to help my leadership team to design, implement, and cascade clear strategic plans. First, LSA helped our leadership team identify the strategy, culture, and talent areas that mattered most to create organizational alignment.
Then they helped facilitate the design of a strategic growth plan that is clear, compelling, believable, and implementable. We now have 100% commitment from an aligned leadership team and key stakeholders going forward.
I would recommend LSA to anyone who wants to create high levels of strategic alignment, growth, and performance.
Vice President, General Manager
LSA exceeded all my expectations.
We interviewed 7 potential training and consulting partners and selected LSA due to their expertise, flexibility, and breadth and depth of leadership solutions.
We were able to design a highly focused and relevant management training course that fit our unique needs.
Our leaders and managers galvanized as a team and are better prepared for the rigors of a leading their teams in a very competitive and fast-changing market.
Great job in designing the Mergers and Acquisition strategy session for our global leadership team. The session was excellent.
I gained additional insight on the importance of the role of HR regarding strategy, culture, and people in Mergers and Acquisitions and would recommend LSA to anyone looking to align strategies and cultures.
Senior Vice President, Human Resources
We contacted LSA to help us design and deliver customized management development programs. LSA worked with us to meet our exact needs. We started at the top with our executive team. It was such a great success that we rolled it out company-wide. We look forward to a long-term partnership with LSA Global and their team of experts.
Barry L. Byrd, SPHR
Human Resources Manager
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, the other options were more theoretical and did not compare in terms of LSA’s practicality, quality, and results.
We could not be happier.
Senior Manager Learning and Development
LSA helped us design and deliver blended leadership solutions for our key leaders to help drive our growth plans in a way that aligned with our unique culture and values.
LSA understood our business, had deep expertise in the content areas, customized the leadership development programs to fit our specific needs, and delivered great results in alignment with our strategic priorities, culture, and performance management systems.
I highly recommend them to anyone looking to take their leaders and the performance of their teams to the next level.
