The SCIP workshop was extremely valuable. It validated our efforts and gave us new ideas. Thanks to the workshop, we're setting up a secret shopper and win/loss program.
The workshop gave me so much I could put into practice, both immediately and over time. It was a true 101 course for building a competitive & market intelligence function - from nuts and bolts to soft skills.
The workshop instructor was very engaging, and shared good real-world and practical examples. I left with specific analytical tools to implement.

War games are a tool to help business leaders think through their strategy formulation and likely external moves of key stakeholders in a controlled environment. They enable key business decisions to be made in a more systematic and informed manner by role playing the key players’ reactions in the marketplace, to really understand their intentions and where are the real opportunities in the marketplace. It will extensively use practical case examples and group exercises. This interactive workshop will develop your understanding of the concepts of war games, the process, and the different types of games. You will also examine how to plan, execute and deliver a war game.
