Real Life Case Studies

Publicly Traded Software Company

The Problem: The company develops enterprise software that is sold through a worldwide network of VARs. The company was preparing to launch its cloud offering, but encountered substantial resistance from the VAR community.

The Challenge: After failing to sell the idea to the VARs, the company wanted the VAR owners to experience the advantages of the cloud solution prior to the launch. Buy-in from the VARs was critical.

The Solution: In-person business-simulation workshops enabled the VAR owners to experience firsthand the advantages of the new business model, in addition to the competitive risks if the VARs resisted the cloud solution. After a one-day group simulation experience, the participants understood the why and the how of strategic change.

The results:
Acceptance of the cloud offering among VARs increased by 78%.

Equipment Manufacturer

The Problem: An entirely new executive team was put in place. With the changes came new strategies and new metrics. New changes measuring financial success created uncertainty, resulting in slow adoption.

The Challenge: The executive team decided managers needed a hands-on experience to learn the what, why, and how of the new strategy.

The Solution: Utilizing simulation-based workshops in more than ten countries, managers had the ability to run the company at a high level. Managers could live a day as the CEO in order to understand the reasons behind the changes. Best of all, the executive team was engaged in working hands-on with the global management team. 

The Results: Participant adoption rate went from 12% to 89% in less than a year.
