Planning2Win

What is Planning2Win?

Six individuals or teams compete against each other in the guise of competing legal firms, tasked to make the most profit for their business. Each individual / team represents an existing company that has its own strategy, business plan, and profit and loss account. First, they must continue implementing the existing business plan, before moving on to making their own decisions based on available market data, analysis of their own performance and competitor analysis. In the simulation, business leaders and their managers and key staff members can experiment, risk-free, with strategies to achieve competitive advantage in a virtual world. 

There are five decision-making rounds typically played over six months. In addition, facilitated feedback sessions are available from an experienced QuoLux™ facilitator. 

Business Planning Skills

Understanding market strategy is one of the most important skills of an effective business leader.  

The objective of Planning2Win is to introduce some of the language of strategic marketing as well as tools and techniques that participants can use to help them in their own business.  All of the planning templates are also available to keep, for use back ‘in the real world’. 

During the decision rounds, individuals / teams can develop, practise and hone their market strategy skills including identifying “why clients buy”, “what are attractive markets” and “where best to compete”, as well as making better decisions. 

Participants have an authentic learning experience in the area of market segmentation, business strategy and financial analysis. 

Feedback Sessions

Monthly feedback sessions are also available in which an experienced QuoLux™ facilitator provides support to the individuals/teams, encouraging them to think about what they have learnt during each decision-making round and how to apply that learning to themselves, their team, their department and their business.
