Key teachers resources
We aim to provide teachers with sufficient material to be able to teach the strategy dynamics
approach, whether by introducing elements into existing classes, using a business simulation
to provide an awareness of the ideas or going further with a complete course and use of the
Sysdea online planning software.
We have a wide range of materials, both free and for cost, that will help in your teaching.
A selection of these are as follows:

comes with a comprehensive data-set and teachers guide covering the main strategy
approaches. Broad in scope and rich in detail it includes what is probably the most
extensive data-set that exists on start-ups, growth and failures in the European
