Make Strategy Happen
Combined, our Strategy Simulations, Strategy Tools and App give you a unique learning and strategy development experience. The Simulation kits are currently available only to certified facilitators.
The Entrepreneurship Simulator
Scale Up! The Entrepreneurship Simulator has you step right into the shoes of a startup or scale-up company. In the game, you will battle to grow your company, face obstacles typical to those of a startup and learn to strategize and scale your company against all odds. Make smart strategic choices, balance your liquidity and try to secure as much investor capital as you can without going bankrupt. Expect a rollercoaster ride through the life of a startup founder.
The Innovation Cluster Simulator
In Supercluster! The Innovation Cluster Simulator, you are the leadership team of a new, emerging innovation Supercluster. Your job is to build the team, grow your industry network, develop key relationships, recruit members, secure funding, and launch special projects. That sound like quite a list, doesn't it? Now try to do it all without going bankrupt, and before your competitors get to the finish line.
The Strategy & Transformation Simulator
Transform! The Strategy & Transformation Simulator brings you on a journey through the complex path to success as a thriving business. As part of the leadership team, your responsibility is to lead this company's transformation and reach 50 billion in valuation. Can you maintain the existing business, optimize your current cash flow, invest in the future and design a broad portfolio of new business models without over-investing and going bankrupt?
Playing Scale Up! put me in the shoes of a startup founder and gave me insights into the startup world I never otherwise would've grasped so quickly.

Train People on Strategy - by Playing (Seriously)
Say goodbye to boring, exhaustive corporate training that leads nowhere
Rather than sit them through a day of theory and digesting PowerPoint slides, take your team or clients on a strategy development journey through real-world scenarios, filled with high-impact learning. They will leave laughing, and itching to take action, we promise.
Learn strategy by doing
The fact is, strategy as a concept is often hard to grasp - especially if you only read and hear about it. Strategy Tools' strategy simulation process pushes you to think critically and make strategic decisions, even if you've never worked with strategy before.
All strategy simulations are built around selected Strategy Tools, connecting the board games, the tools and the software into one experience.
Experience the real world
All three board games used in our workshops are developed based on realistic and current market environments. You will experience what it is like to grow a startup, transform a corporation or build a supercluster through real-world scenarios.
Through our unique Strategy-Simulation-as-a-Service (SSaaS) model, you will get updated cards, with brand new content, the latest events and new booming companies, straight in the mail – every six months.
These simulations never go out of date.
In each Strategy Simulation, you and your team members will be facing several micro-decisions that will make or break your company / cluster. Throughout the entire gameplay, you will need to think on your feet and make strategically sound decisions that propel your company forward.
Foster better teamwork
During the gameplay, even very diverse teams are forced to converse and collaborate - helping foster better understanding across different mindsets and working methods. You will break down silos even if they've never spoken to each other before.
Very exciting and educational, and deeply engaging. You get sucked into complex situations very quickly, which makes for a very intense session where the time flew. I highly recommend this to management groups or boards in both small and large companies.
