The Leadership Simulation Workshop will be conducted by enParadigm Knowledge Solutions from the 16 - 18 September at Hotel Radisoon Blu, Dwarka. This program helps organizations align their top managers with the corporate strategy, helps managers work better in cross-functional teams and prepares them to drive the future growth of the company. This is achieved by giving participants aCEO perspective of the business and is intended for business heads and functional heads. The three key takeaway are:
Cross-functional Decision Making
Financial impact of business decisions
Unlike other leadership workshops which are lecture based, the Leadership Simulation Workshop is a participant driven, simulation based workshop.
Participants are grouped into cross-functional teams and each team forms the top management of a virtual company. All the teams in the workshop compete against each other on a simulated platform (enParadigm's Learning Curve Simulation Platform). Each team will have to formulate a business strategy and implement it over several quarters in a competitive business environment. Participants will have to make decisions on all aspects of business including the kind of product/ service they are offering, price, advertising, hiring, salary, operations, financing etc, and will also have to manage performance targets.
Facilitators, who are IIM Ahmedabad alumni and faculty, guide the participants through periodic business reviews and embedded concept session. These unique concept session not only help participants understand the underlying idea behind business decision making, but also gives them an opportunity to implement the concept in running a competitive business. This way the application of a concept becomes very clear and retention is assured.
More than 1500+ corporate leaders have benefitted from the Leadership Simulation Workshop. Ms Phalguni Sanpath, SVP Strategy and Research at Sony Entertainment said, "So used to thinking in a set pattern, this just helped open many ways of approaching a business problem, definitely changed my outlook.", when asked about her experience at the Leadership Simulation Workshop she had attended in March '13. Mr Alok Tayal CEO of Exevo had also attended the Leadership Simulation Workshop last December and his testimonial for the workshop was, "It is very difficult to teach people with 20-25 years of experience. Their thoughts and process become stringent and strong. It is hard to teach people like us. This program changes the whole way teaching is done. We were given a bit of pointers, bit of learning and immediately given a simulation program to apply that program and see the results. This is a program where learning and implementation of learning go hand in hand. I will definitely recommend it to senior management of organizations. Excellent program."
The Leadership Simulation Workshop is also conducted in-house, for many large corporations such as Ctibank, Coca-Cola, Muthoot Group, Madura Garments, HCL, Philips, MRF etc. enParadigm is a group of IIM Ahmedabad alumni and faculty who design and deliver experiential learning workshops, involving simulations, role plays etc.
