Key features:
- 5 different boroughs representing 5 fundamental strategic environments: classical, adaptive, visionary, shaping, renewal.
- In total, 15 levels of gameplay against an increasingly challenging and strategically adept, computer opponent named after BCG's founder Bruce D. Henderson
- A Sandbox level where you can choose your prefered environment and level of difficulty
- In-game tips and post-game debriefs connect the gameplay to both theory and strategy in the real world
- Interactive Learn More section that provides background on the strategic concepts underlying each environment and approach to strategy
- Sample content from the book Your Strategy Needs a Strategy (Harvard Business Press 2015)
- Direct links to further materials and videos, such as a TED talk (

Doesn’t teach strategy

In this game you need to choose a location for your lemonade stand that has the most traffic. Variables in some levels make it so that you need to change your location to go where the people are. Each round is played with a 1minute timer. At no point are you able to do market research, or learn/implement other business strategy.
