Course description

Zodiak - Paradigm Learning

Zodiak®: The Game of Business Finance and Strategy

Every business decision has a measurable financial impact. Without understanding the connection between daily actions and the organization's bottom line, people make uninformed financial decisions.

When individual contributors, leaders, managers, and sales professionals can speak the language of business, their actions and decisions are more aligned with strategic and organizational goals.

SHRM has continuously ranked Business Acumen as the most critical core competency. Surveys project this to remain true through 2022.

A Powerful Business Acumen Simulation

In a variety of industry settings and geared toward specific audiences, Zodiak®: The Game of Business Finance and Strategy challenges learners with the realities of business ownership and empowers them to make smart decisions back on the job.

By understanding the big picture of how business works and how organizations make money, participants begin to see how their actions effect their organization's bottom line.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the simulation, participants are armed to take personal action to impact targeted financial, strategic and operational objectives.

Through Zodiak's sustainability application, the simulation reaches beyond the classroom. It's designed to empower participants with additional assets, aid in the creation of action plans, and allow learning and development professional to track progress.
