Think:Act Magazine: Leading thoughts, shaping vision
A new era of geopolitics
This is not an era of stability. The challenges posed by an unexpected war, a raging pandemic, the vagaries of climate change, politics, trade wars and unpredictable natural disasters, among other things, have altered the geopolitical landscape complicating things for business. For organizations this means constantly staying alert to the changes on the horizon and factoring in the impact of geopolitical events in their business strategy.
In many ways, geopolitics triggered the globalization wave that began in the 1980s. From how it looks, similar geopolitical changes could pose a threat to the prosperity we have grown used to. Are you ready for the new phase of globalization?
Organizations need to pay constant attention to the stream of changes in the geopolitical landscape, fine-tuning and adapting their strategies as they go along. To help you get a sense of how you need to steer your company in this new era, we have created for you a board game called Think:Risk.
Your task: Expand your company's reach, tackling crises and trumping competition. All you need to do is download and print the PDF, two dice (here are digital dice in case you don't have real ones), a good strategy and someone to play with! Good luck!
- To play Think:Risk, you first need to print the PDF file.
- If you only have an A4/US printer, you need six sheets of paper in A4/US Letter format.
- After printing use tape to assemble the board game.
