Capstone Project

A powerful simulation to expose learners to interactive competitive environment of real-time strategic decision making. By leveraging competitive intelligence, cross-functional impacts, companies financial health and business conditions, learners would analyse, formulate, and execute strategic decisions by interrelating ideas, and reiterating from failure. The simulation would be carried over a course of few weeks

Hands-On Simulation

Participants will gain a hands-on learning experience by working on a capstone project that either involves doing a comprehensive strategic analysis of an organisation and providing recommendations, or a consulting project which addresses a relevant issue faced by the organisation during the project. In either case, the analysis done by the participants will lead to suggesting practical recommendations to solve the organisational challenge.

ANALYSE Participants use several reports to analyse market trends, competing products, customer buying patterns, and key financial metrics.

FORMULATE Participants use their analysis to formulate a strategy to win market share and beat the competitions.

EXECUTE Participants execute their strategy by making key decisions across functional areas of business: R&D, Marketing, Production and Finance.
