BTS Group acquires Wizerize

Posted by

Here’s a recent acquisition in the leadership development sector, which is not a sector typically known for a large number of strategic acquisitions. One of Training Industry’s 2013 Top 20 Leadership Training Companies, BTS Group, today announced the acquisition of Wizerise. This transaction is quite interesting because it’s one of the first times that I’ve seen social media driving a strategy consulting and leadership development company’s acquisition activities.

“The Wizer® system is very innovative and lays the foundation for BTS future growth into mobile and social applications that complement our simulation-based learning and strategy execution initiatives for clients.” commented Henrik Ekelund, President and CEO, BTS Group.

It looks like here’s a company that understands that our iPhones have utility in the corporate world beyond email, phone calls, and our personal Facebook accounts.

Call Peter Alternative if you own a company in the leadership development sector and would like to discuss our experience working with companies like yours.
