Grow your strategy & innovation skills

Develop a strategic mindset through world-class tools

Learn to use new strategy tools that are developed not just for the business challenges of today but the fast-changing industry landscapes of tomorrow.

Experience the real world in a safe environment

Our simulations are developed based on realistic and current market environments. Develop a deeper understanding of business model portfolios and innovation.

Reflect on your split-second decision making

You and your team members will be facing several micro-decisions that will make or break your company. Make strategically sound decisions that propel your company forward.

What it is

The Scale Up! & Strategy Workshop is an hands-on discovery session on  the three Stratey Tools simulations – and how you can use them.
The Strategy Tools simulations are advanced, powerful learning simulations – perfect for accelerators, strategy processes, executive education programs, ecosystems and company development.
Developed by Christian Rangen, the Simulations are currently being rolled out to leading accelerators, strategy teams, innovation teams, business schools, innovation clusters and ecosystems.

What makes it so powerful is the number of decision points, the carry-over effects of each decision, and the required speed of decision making. With every throw of the dice, teams need to crack a mini case study on the best course of action, often revealing knowledge gaps that teams weren’t aware of but are eager to close.

Why join us

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.

Experience the Real World

All the simulations 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.

Empower Decision Making

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 workshop, you will need to think on your feet and make strategically sound decisions that propel your company forward.

Foster Better Teamwork

During the workshop, 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.

Our Simulations

Scale Up!

In the simulation, 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.

Transform!

As part of the leadership team, you will go on a journey through the complex path to success as a thriving business. Your responsibility? Lead this company’s transformation.

Supercluster!

 job is to build the team, grow your industry network, develop key relationships, recruit members, secure funding, and launch special projects.

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.
