Commercial Acumen – Game on!

Commercial and financial skills are critical for success in senior leadership roles in operations. So get gaming for the C-Suite with NAWO’s exciting new one day Zodiak Workshop FOR WOMEN AND MEN (NAWO Members* only)!

Using the globally recognised Zodiak® Business & Finance Simulation, you will spend a day managing the top level financials of a business.

Companies face tough decisions every day about processes, people, product development, asset management, capital investments and more. In today’s competitive, fast-paced marketplace, commercial acumen skills – understanding financial drivers and strategic objectives, and the connection between strategy and financial success – are critical at all levels.

Zodiak® ‘the Game of Business Finance and Strategy’ is a sophisticated simulation game designed to build the financial and strategic acumen of every participant in a fastpaced, energising and engaging way.

The Simulation:

In this one day workshop, participants take on the role of new owners of a struggling company and make critical operating decisions over the course of 3 years. Beyond just selling, making & delivering products they take out loans, attract investors, invest in R&D, manage working capital, expand, respond to competitors, implement price changes, run out of cash, and manage litigation and natural disasters. At the end of each year they close their books and respond to their investors. Your team will embrace new insights – not just about how the numbers work, but also about how individual actions impact your P&L, Balance Sheet & Cash Flow.

Learning Outcomes:

Develop a critical competency with significantly higher levels of financial literacy and commercial acumen.

Business Outcomes:

Gain insight into how you contribute to the financial performance of your business and how you can drive superior value for the business.
