Who is this course for?

Planning2Win is an online simulation designed specifically to help business leaders, managers and staff from organisations of all sizes gain a better understanding of business planning and market strategy.

Individuals or teams of people with up to 5 in a team compete against each other in the guise of six competing legal firms, tasked to make the most profit for their business. Each individual / team represents a ‘simulation company’ that has its own strategy, business plan and profit and loss account. First, they must understand and continue implementing the existing business plan, before moving on to making their own decisions based on available market data, analysis of their own performance and competitor analysis. Business leaders, managers and key staff members can experiment, risk-free, with strategies to achieve competitive advantage in a virtual world.

There are five decision rounds typically played over six months with facilitated feedback sessions delivered monthly by an experienced facilitator. During the monthly decision rounds, individuals / teams develop, practise and hone their market strategy skills including identifying “why clients buy”, “what are attractive markets” and “where best to compete”, as well as making better decisions.

Individuals compete against other individuals or teams of people.

People from the one organisation can compete against each other in the simulation advancing team building, leadership skills and organisational development whilst introducing a competitive edge, a sense of fun and a focus on winning strategies. Developing people is recognised to dramatically increase staff retention.
