Cyborg War Games: How Humans, Technology, and Imagination Upgrade Competitive Strategy
Presented by Mark Chussil

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at 11:00 AM Eastern


I’ve run business war games around the world for thirty years. I can attest that they are cool. Better still: they are surprising. Those surprises mean war games add value. They tell us things we didn’t already know.  War-game technology promises to upgrade that value. It’s not about big data and replacing people. It’s about big thinking and creating synergy with humans, technology, and imagination.  In this presentation I draw on MacArthur genius award-winning political scientist Robert Axelrod, chess champion Garry Kasparov, business war games, game theory, cyborgs, research on the Top Pricer Tournament™, and the models in our heads.

Attendees will learn:

  • Fresh perspectives on strategy and decision-making from nine billion simulations on 1800+ Tournament’s entries
  • Pitfalls from conflating bad outcomes with bad decisions, and a simple framework to steer clear of the pits
  • Provocative questions for CI professionals to answer (“what will our competitors do?” is not the right question)

Underlying it all is a cyborg — human + computer — approach to strategy decision-making that offers a disruptive look at competitive strategy itself. I know it’s disruptive because it rocked my own thinking. Attendees can enter the Top Pricer Tournament* before the webinar. Will you be crowned the webinar’s Top Pricer? Entries are free, confidential, and noncommercial, of course.  
* Instructions for entering the Top Pricer Tournament will be emailed directly upon registration for this program.
