With every new innovation, firms are driving more of their business investments through fact based decision making. At Diamond, we believe in combining hard facts with tribal knowledge and legacy insights within the firm. D'Facto aims to simulate this scenario using an interesting example that students can relate to.

D’Facto is the first competition of its kind that challenges some of the best brains to compete against each other for a grand prize.

In the problem to be presented this year, you will have to navigate around constraints and comply with rules to come up with an innovative solution. To make things more interesting you will have a limited amount of time, resources and whole of lot of thinking to do!

A lot of pride and a grand prize are at stake, so set your alarm clocks to September 1st 2014, 12:01am and get ready with your thinking caps on to take on this challenge.

Registrations will be open from August 26th 2014.
