Key teachers resources
Our Strategy Dynamics and Business Modelling courses are suitiable for teaching at undergraduate through to executive education and we make them available free of charge to teachers in order enable evaluation as well as to "train the trainer".
We aim to provide teachers with sufficient material to be able to teach business modeling or the strategy dynamics approach, whether by introducing elements into existing classes, using a business simulation to provide an awareness of the ideas or going further with a complete course and use of the
Sysdea online planning software.
The courses include many models and exercises that can be used with your students at no cost but for more in-depth learning we can also provide discounted access to courses for your students - potentially saving you many hours of class time. Contact us today to discuss providing materials for your classes.
Both courses follow the structure of "Strategy Dynamics Essentials" a consise, practical textbook that works through the principles of core business architecture and more advanced aspects.
Do you teach at a university? If so why not request to register as a teacher for access to more materials.
