Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to run a Mutari simulation workshop?
A Mutari simulation workshop is typically run over a half day, but can be extended to a full day if an optional exercise in applying the methodology to a real case is included.
What is the role, mission and success measures in the Mutari simulation?
You play the role of an Integration Manager, who, in the context of a merger between two banks, has been asked to figure out the post-merger integration plan, by working with a number of internal and external stakeholders in the project. Success is measured by the level of expected earnings, which depends on both the financial projections and the level of support obtained from the stakeholder group as a whole.
What are the limits on numbers of participants in a Mutari simulation workshop?
We recommend that participants be organised in teams of 3 to 5 people, with a minimum of 3 teams and a maximum of 40 teams.
