This highly interactive and thought-provoking program is led by Mark Chussil, a 35-year veteran in competitive strategy who has developed war-games and simulations for dozens of Fortune 500 companies around the world (and helped them make or save billions of dollars). In it you will learn:
• The most-important reason why strategies fail.
• Why history-based forecasting tools and accounting-based financial analysis don’t solve future-based strategy problems.
• How massive judgment assumptions make us learn the wrong lessons from our businesses’ results.
• How to tell the difference between being lucky and being smart.
• When to apply your new knowledge of strategy
Because learning comes from experience and not from lectures, you will participate in multiple non-embarrassing exercises. This is not death by PowerPoint. Strategy decisions are ambiguous and difficult, at least if done right. What decisions really need is clarity and rigor, and an understanding of what to test, what to trust, and what to do. Come see and learn.
