The Challenges 

The main components of Business Battlefield are the three challenges. The challenges are carefully selected by the organizing committee in collaboration with our partners. Each challenge is meant to represent a vital skill for any future leader, regardless of industry or organization. Read more about this year’s three challenges below:

01

Strategic Communication

The ability to communicate with people and deliver a strategic message is something any leader should be able to do. Mastering communication is extremely important, both when working internally on a team, but also when communicating with stakeholders. In this challenge, the participants will be tested within argumentation, rhetoric and connectivity. Each team will be assigned a specific stakeholder, presented with a case, and asked to discuss and defend a communication strategy, in a simulated debate set-up.

02

Negotiation

Having the upper hand in a negotiation is key as a leader, and with a dynamic competitive market in constant growth this skills importance is increasing. Proper negotiation skills will ensure favorable outcomes and a strong position for the business. In this challenge the participants will be tested within team work, usage of incomplete information and goal congruence in a three-part negotiation.

03

Crisis Management

Leaders are increasingly being exposed to wicked and compound problems, demanding them to navigate in complex situations, calling for extensive problem solving and crisis management skills. The ability to solve such crises and handle complex issues is therefore a key skill for leaders around the globe. In this challenge, the participants will enter into a crisis simulation and here be tested on parameters such as time management, decision making and adaptability, whilst they are performing.

The 2019 Program

The Foundation

EXTRAORDINARY LEADERS

Business Battlefield was founded in 2016 as a sister-event to CBS Case Competition on the occasion of Copenhagen Business School’s 100-year anniversary. For 100 years CBS has been educating leaders that have been serving in various positions all over the world. Today we wish to challenge the contemporary characteristics of a leader while shaping the leaders of tomorrow.

Since

2016

Business Battlefield, 2017, was the first of its kind both nationally and internationally.
Since Business Battlefield turned out to be a success, we decided to make Business Battlefield into its own organization, and a yearly recurring event.
