Chess & Corporate Strategy

Why Chess and Strategy?
The game of chess is considered to be a paradigm of business strategy: although tactics and calculations are major components of chess, the real skill lies in mastering its strategic concepts as it involves the need for an in-depth analysis of multiple scenarios, the current position, and possible moves, as well as the psychological aspects of the other player, etc.

Why this course today?
The aim of the course is to improve strategic thinking and decision-making skills, especially in times of extreme uncertainty and disruption, through the parallelism with the strategic game par excellence, chess.

The course will integrate content from various fields such as game theory, the comparison between artificial intelligence and human strategic thinking, and the foundations of leadership: all themes that intersect both with the game of chess and with business strategies.
