What You Can Expect From This Course
Developed by Andromeda Simulations International, Income:Outcome Finance for Sales Professionals is a full day and a 1/2 simulation that utilizes the Income/Outcome simulation board to allow sales professionals to manage their companies through a simulated year, looking at short-term results and long-term goals. This involves forecasting and constant decision-making on such issues as pricing, capacity, borrowing, R&D, cost structure, and cash flow.
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 consisting of six business cycles in which teams have full decision-making power and are accountable for the results.

- 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

- Maintaining the ‘books’ of the operating company (Income Statement and Balance Sheet)
