A word from Jacques BERTRAND,
international expert, creator of the Strategic Planning Course and author of the strategic simulator “Optopiville”:
“Optopiville is like a flight simulator: a virtual reality, for accelerated learning. As Managing Director, you develop the strategy for a major water service and pilot it for 15 years, all in 3 days. You are confronted with a virtually real situation: infrastructures to be established, a universal service to be rendered, a company that must be held accountable … and which has to deal with its stakeholders: bankers and political authorities … who have their own interests; customers …who have to pay; employees … who must be productive. It’s sharp, lively and smart!”
