Vadim Kotelnikov teachings

Launching a radical innovation / change project without playing a simulation game is like starting a football game naively believing that the opposing team does not exist. But it does and it wants to defeat you. You must prepare to win!

Educative InnoBall Tests






A simulation game, like Innoball, is a powerful success catalyst that helps you

create radical innovations  ●  make big changes  ●  pursue emerging opportunities

and also select the best ventures or radical innovation projects to invest in


Ideation Process

Team & Venture Assessment



When you create radical innovations,
entrepreneurial simulation games such as
Innovation Football (Innoball) and Innovation Chess
are by far more useful

than conventional business planning, strategy formulation and
 project management methods


Both InnoBall and InnoChess are the key types of contests
of the
Innompic Internet Games among Innovators.


Synergizing Innovations

Strategic simulation games help you create various innovations and synergize them. You start with a great breakthrough invention or a business idea. During the game, in response to your opponents' moves, you come out with new radical and incremental, 'hard' and soft' innovations and integrate them in a winning synergistic combination.


Business Games

Game theory has greatly expanded the scope of analysis for business strategy, sharpening corporate competitiveness and advancing policy.

Strategic simulation games can not only help you learn the right way to create innovations but to understand opponents' behavior and what is likely to happen if you alter the rules.

Business games are most beneficial in obtaining  insights into the way players in your market interact in specific circumstances and anticipate opponents' moves when you make surprise moves, develop
market leadership, innovation and  venture strategies, manage an innovation project and create a new market niche.

Competitive War Games

While preparing your strategic plan, your need to consider opponents' moves as well as competitors' reactions to your own moves before committing to a specific strategy.

The goal of a competitive war game is to gain a better understanding of the total competitive arena, and anticipate competitive developments and moves in your industry. The war game is an effective tool for uncovering hidden weaknesses your own and those of your competitors. This understanding will help you formulate best-course action options.

Competitive war games will also help you shift managerial focus from internal to external, and lay a foundation of an early warning process.
