Used to Build a Better Learning Experience
Business has changed. You need to change how you teach strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship, clusters and digital transformation with next-generation experiential learning. Learn how to lead a strategic transformation, how to secure the right investors and scale up. This can be done by using simulations, learning aids and software in one impactful solution.
This is action learning at scale. Shift from textbooks and powerpoint presentations to strategy simulation and new learning tools, across industries and domains. Make strategy fun and actionable again for your cohorts and students by giving them a powerful strategy learning experience.
“For the past year, I have been searching for a simulation relevant to the Berkley Method of Entrepreneurship, experiential learning and building a startup from scratch.
We ran our simulation with 19 students divided into 2 groups, each of us running one board. The students, the school and I were all suitably impressed with Chris and the simulation. I look forward to running a few more sessions under my belt and bringing this new modality of learning to the US.”
