A business game is a competitive activity in which players operate within structured guidelines, contend with obstacles, make decisions and work toward a goal. As challenges arise, players interact with one another, individually or as part of a team, to win. A game board often is the centerpiece of the activity, incorporating components such as chips, dice, card decks, timers and more to keep the action lively.
Our business games place small teams of learners into simulated business situations that require complex critical thinking, effective communication, strong cooperation and high levels of initiative. As competition heats up, players have fun while acquiring the critical business skills and knowledge they'll need back on the job.
A business simulation replicates a slice of reality from the work environment. It compresses time and allows learners to experiment with new tools, concepts, skills and ideas in a safe environment. A business simulation promotes intense engagement of learners in ways that ensure high involvement and help make the learning content transfer to the job.
Our carefully designed business simulations are powerful and effective learning programs that use proven discovery learning methodology to educate learners in many subject areas. Often customized to meet the specific needs of clients, these simulations form the foundation of learning experiences that bridge to the organization's — and the learners' — own environment and relevant job issues.
