Facilitator-Led Simulation

This group experience provides the rules for the simulation, a general introduction to the process of business (financial statements, business terminology, fundamental business dynamics), and sets the framework of needing to manage separately for cash and profit.

Team Competition Simulation

Team competition in this simulation consists of six strategically complex business cycles in which teams have full decision-making power and are held accountable for the results.

In each cycle, teams develop and implement a business strategy which incorporates real-world dynamics: production capacity, customers, prices, financing, and more. Each cycle includes:

  • Examining market drivers: supply and demand, niche marketing, quality
  • Competitor awareness, setting prices in a competitive market
  • Ongoing strategic analysis, updating the strategic plan in response to changes in the industry and in the marketplace
  • Budget and cash flow exercises
  • Monitoring cash flow
  • Maintaining the ‘books’ of the operating company (Income Statement and Balance Sheet)
