How corporate courses can be used:

  • Competency development - mini-MBA for executives
    Storewars allows managers to understand company operations from the top as well as to see the perspectives of the manufacturer, the retailer and the consumer. A 360 degree view of the industry and holistic understanding of consumer-facing business.

  • Effective FMCG and Retail strategy management
    Storewars covers the full FMCG strategy cycle: from analyzing industry data, company's global strategy development and execution to monitoring its results and effectiveness immediately. Participants receive a comprehensive feedback after each decision they made and have a unique chance of testing different approaches in the virtual business environment without any risks.

  • Teambuilding and cross-department communication
    Whilst participants often come from one discipline in one market, Storewars also works well in cross-functional development, with delegates from different disciplines: sales, marketing, commercial or logistics. Storewars programs work great as cross-department and teambuilding tool that brings managers from different parts of the business to work together and benefit from best practice exchange.
  • Partnership development (a joint program with 1-3 partner's companies: retailers/manufacturers/distributors)
    Storewars in-house program can be turned into a joint program where you invite your trade partners to participate in the program. This approach is being successfully used in trade partnership development programs by a number of our clients. Participants work together, compete and interact in the virtual business environment while improving the understanding of the real business, values and challenges of their trade partners in real life, which creates a solid platform for a successful partnership.
