Digital war-game for a global airline


The company
A major airline with more than 100,000 employees, serving more than 200 destinations around the world.
Our client
Senior Vice-President of Transformation, reporting directly to the CEO, and his team.
Strategic goals to achieve
Test and validate a new global pricing strategy and get buy-in from all relevant stakeholders in a quick and effective way, with less than 3 months to the next CEO/Board meeting where the final strategy must be presented.
What we did
We designed, developed, and conducted a new type of business war-game, using custom digital technology that enabled high levels of complexity, realism, and interactivity impossible with traditional war-game methods. More than 40 senior executives and managers participated in the exercise over 1.5 days.
Benefits
The war-game received unanimous positive feedback from all participants who were able to reach agreement on the new strategy, as well as its potential risks and ways to mitigate, by gaining better understanding of market dynamics. It was pivotal to get all stakeholders onboard and the strategy was implemented within 3 months.
