Tango is a unique management simulation designed for mid levels of management and high potentials working in companies or departments in which people and processes are the key assets (R&D, software development, engineering, project management, consulting, professional services, technical sales, etc.)  This simulation focuses on issues and challenges related to creating an effective business strategy, talent management, project efficiency, resource allocation and winning the right clients.
