BUSINESS BASICS

Participants run a business in a competitive team environment — setting prices,  monitoring cash flow, making operational improvements, and planning for growth and profit. They also learn to use financial statements as a tool for measuring results. This 4-hour workshop enhances everyone’s ability to communicate, implement and exercise initiative.

What You Can Expect From This Course

Developed by Andromeda Simulations International, Income:Outcome Business Basics is a 4 hour simulation that develops business acumen through stealth learning – people are so busy having fun in the game that they do not realize how much they are learning. The business finance learning is thorough and participants gain a big picture understanding of business, finance terminology, working with financial statements, the importance of cash flow.

Overview and Introduction by Facilitator

Includes financial statements (how to read an income statement and balance sheet), finance terminology, discussion of cost structures, difference between cash and profit, and more.

Team Competition

Team competition simulations consist of three business cycles in which teams have full decision-making power and are accountable for the business results.

In each cycle, the team-based companies develop and implement a business strategy which incorporates real-world dynamics: production capacity, customers, prices, and financing.

Each cycle includes competitor and market analysis; setting prices in a competitive market; monitoring cash flow; preparing an income statement and balance sheet; and posting, comparing, and discussing results.

Teams have opportunities to improve their companies with real world business solutions: expansion, quality initiatives, niche marketing, and more. Finance learning is wholly integrated within the simulation.

Focus on Your Company’s Actual Financial Position

Using The Company Board®, a 3D visual representation of your corporate financial position or industry analysis. This module connects the learning from the classroom to the real world. The tie-back and discussion relate the simulation experience to your company’s concerns, measures, and goals.
