We work with and provide training for retailers and suppliers through our association with The Richard Ivey School of Business. We are currently marketing “STOREWARS”, a professional development course that reminds retailers and suppliers of what can be achieved in a less adversarial relationship. Major international retailers and manufacturers have found enormous value in the program. The STOREWARS simulation was developed by Prof. Marcel Corstjens at INSEAD in France and has provided training for a large client base around the world.


The Richard Ivey School of Business is the largest producer of business cases after Harvard Business School, and the world’s foremost producer of Asian case studies.


Since Ivey’s inception in 1922, the case study method has been the keystone of the school’s approach to learning. The case method is active learning by doing. Each case provides the student with an opportunity to stand in the shoes of the decision-maker, analyzing the business issue presented, making judgments and determining a course of action.
