Learn how a customized business simulation is helping develop leaders at CA Technologies. CA Technologies enhanced its Leadership Development program with a business simulation designed to increase participants’ business and finance acumen, help them articulate corporate strategy, and explain how their role impacts financials. The result? It raised awareness of each participant’s role in the company’s success, instilled financial acumen, and deepened participants’ understanding of CA’s performance and market presence.
TRI Corporation consultants and the CA Technologies team partnered to craft a simulation customized to the content, language, and culture of a high-tech software company. The result radically transformed the impact of an existing leadership development curriculum. Key to the success of this effort was the application to CA’s real-world issues and the linkage to its balanced scorecard.

A recent graduate of the course commented, “Most relevant was the business simulation - the ‘aha’ moment - and realizing that everything I do has an impact and cost. Everything should be aligned with corporate goals and my department’s goals.”

During the March 21 program you will experience components of the CA business simulation and participate in a discussion of the critical success factors necessary for an effective partnership.
