Learning Curve Simulation
HOLISTIC VIEW OF BUSINESS FOR B-SCHOOL STUDENTS
3 DAY WORKSHOP

Problems addressed
Application barrier

The climb from theoretical absorption to practical application is steep. With practical problems as well as mental blocks, most students face issues utilizing their knowledge at work.
Short-term focus

Managers who spend their days tweaking, optimizing and fire-fighting may get trapped in a myopic, short-term mindset that prevents them from contributing to the big picture.
Business Ambiguity

As your business grows in size and complexity in a volatile market, managers need to deal with internal and external ambiguity as a matter-of-course.
Comprehending financials

With increasingly demanding customers and the entry of disruptive innovators, every manager needs to be keenly aware of the financial impact of every decision.
Threats from competition

With rising competition, managers need to be able to recognize threats, identify and anticipate competitor moves – and make prudent, confident counter-moves.
