Our relationship with Forum is complementary since we both work at very high levels within a client organization, where key conversations are related to business results
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) July 22, 2008
The Forum Corp., a global leader in helping organizations execute strategy through people, and Paradigm Learning, a leader in designing classroom-based business games, simulations and Discovery Maps®, have formed a strategic alliance to enable organizations to develop the business acumen of managers and employees and to achieve better alignment among their people.
These custom solutions will help align employees to business strategies, broaden their perspectives about “owning” business results, and increase their commitment to executing organizational initiatives.
Forum will integrate Paradigm’s flagship products, Zodiak®: The Game of Business and Finance Strategy and Discovery Maps®, as well as other discovery learning programs, within client engagements that are designed to help organizations execute strategy and obtain sustainable results.
“Our research into strategic execution shows that two out of every three leaders feel unprepared to lead their organizations’ growth strategies,” said Ed Boswell, CEO of The Forum Corp. “Paradigm’s award-winning, content-rich business games and simulations will strengthen our ability to address two of the many reasons why these leaders feel unprepared -- their lack of business acumen and their organization’s lack of alignment.”
“It’s an honor to be involved with The Forum Corporation,” said Robb Gomez, president of Paradigm Learning. “For as long as I’ve been in the training industry, the Forum name has been synonymous with quality and innovative solutions. Forum’s solutions are directly linked to helping their clients achieve business results, and this is very much in line with how Paradigm creates value for its customers.
“Our relationship with Forum is complementary since we both work at very high levels within a client organization, where key conversations are related to business results,” continued Gomez.
