About the Training

“This video explains how a very important business strategy of merging with a competitor occurs frequently in high-level chess tournaments. Opponents offer a draw so they can split their winnings. In business it’s a viable survival strategy that the creators of PayPal used to survive the dot-com implosion.”

Business on the Board™ is ready to design a customized talent development program that meets the specific needs of your company’s leaders.  It may start with a keynote speech on leadership, be followed by a workshop on strategic thinking, or a hands-on breakout session using gamification.
