Business Network Theme Week:The Future is Not What it Used to Be - BNet Strategy Game

From Santa Fe Institute Events Wiki


Business Network Strategy Game Session

A "Strategy Game" is a uniquely structured battle of minds between teams representing various players (and/or other third parties) in a market or industry. The objective is to predict third parties’ moves or countermoves and stress-test one’s own plans and strategies in as realistic a setting as possible; and thus, refine your position to be resilient against these most-likely responses.

To be held on Friday, September 18, the goal of this game is to evaluate and develop optimal collaboration strategies between the BNet membership and SFI. We are seeking the participation of a cross-section of BNet and the SFI community to contribute to this highly interactive process that includes team-based analysis, discussion and debate. This activity is being directed by Luciano Oviedo, Systems Analyst, Intel Corporation. He develops processes and technologies related to business, competitive and market analytics.

For more information, please leave any questions/comments at Luciano Oviedo's discussion page.

Events are held at the Santa Fe Institute unless otherwise noted
