BizFighter™ – The A&D Business Simulation!
A Management and Leadership Development Course for the Aerospace and Defense Industry
Running an A&D company isn’t quite rocket science – but sometimes it feels like it…
But luckily, BizFighter helps participants decipher Earned Value Management (EVM) terms and concepts like CPI, SPI, CPAR, BAC, EAC, Bookings, and Backlog and actually apply them in running an A&D company.
Teams compete to bid on new and follow-on programs and contracts, deliver state-of-the-art products, stay on-schedule and on-cost, and build market share – and try to make a profit through it all!
But winning and executing on multi-million-dollar programs will require a focus on targeted customer segments, the right level of technology, and an effective supply chain. Teams will also need to select and retain their human capital (including some rocket scientists…) to staff and complete their programs.
At the end of the competition, successful Teams (and their virtual shareholders) are rewarded with high Net Profits, positive Free Cash Flow, low Working Capital, and a high Stock Price.
BizFighter can be run as a live or virtual class over 2-4 days.
