THE INNOVATION CLUSTER SIMULATOR
Designed for visionary national change makers, innovation clusters, national innovation agencies, innovation policymakers, accelerators, incubators, business schools and anyone set on transforming a nation by innovation, Supercluster! The Innovation Cluster Simulator teaches you the basics of Supercluster development.
Build a National Supercluster
Take the role of the leadership team, as you build, structure, and learn how to scale Innovation clusters and build some of the most powerful ecosystems in the world. By the end of the simulation, you will get a clear idea of the pieces needed to build a successful Innovation Supercluster – even if you’ve never heard of the term before today.
From gameplay to national innovation policies
A core part of the gameplay is debriefing and translating into “our real world”. Supercluster! is designed for strategy development and strategic conversations for anyone involved with national innovation policies, ecosystem builders, national innovation agencies, accelerators, incubators, ministeries of trade and innovation, and most importantly, cluster managers and cluster programs worldwide.
Built on real world cluster strategy
The gameplay of Supercluster! is built around the powerful Strategy Tools Supercluster Series, which is developed based on several recognized cluster strategy frameworks that is used by cluster leaders and Superclusters across the globe.
“It was a tough and intense learning experience that still managed to be a lot of fun!”
Become a Certified Facilitator
A 100% online certification program to support your development, learning and mastery of the Supercluster! simulation. In this certification program, you will master the Supercluster! Simulation.
From running small simulation sessions to larger scale multi-step training programs, you will learn how to plan, design and run full programs. You will learn the domain knowledge and advanced facilitation skills to run impactful Supercluster! sessions and programs, as well as how to sell these internally and externally.
As a simulation facilitator, you will quickly learn that Supercluster! is far more than ‘just a simulation’. The entire bundle is a highly flexible solution, that you can structure and use in many, many ways, based on your customers’ and users’ needs.
The Supercluster! Simulation Kit is available for purchase for Certified Simulation Facilitators only.
Build deep capabilities in leading and building innovation superclusters
Supercluster! the innovation cluster simulation is built on extensive work with 100+ real life clusters and cluster projects around the world.
From small emerging clusters to global superclusters, from seafood to artificial intelligence, from the political rivalry to the operational tasks of a cluster manager; the simulation brings the real-life challenges of building and running a cluster to life in a practical and engaging manner.
You can apply this simulation to cluster boards, politicians, cluster development programs, consulting projects and anyone wanting to learn and master innovation clusters.
The Simulation has been developed by Christian Rangen and team, with more than five years of extensive experience building and supporting innovation cluster programs and policies around the world.
Equally, the simulation is grounded in multiple theories around clusters, ecosystems, economic development entrepreneurial economies, adult learning theories and more.
Most importantly, the entire simulation is designed for engagement, learning and maximum real-life impact.
Get certified to bring this powerful solution to your cluster, region or clients.
