Description "Business Challenge™ is an online, multiplayer simulation that allows managers to apply finance concepts in a way that closely models managerial decision-making. Learners manage virtual businesses and compete for market leadership. They make investment decisions, fund their strategies, and view the results in terms of financial metrics. Business Challenge is like a lab; learners put theory into practice, conduct financial experiments, and experience the results – with safety goggles on! Business Challenge encourages participants to grasp the relationship between everyday managerial decisions and a company’s financial goals. This competitive business simulation allows participants to:
► Analyze business from multiple viewpoints
► Base decisions on financial criteria and a holistic understanding of the business
► Assess the impact of cost structure on financial performance
► Perform breakeven analysis and interpreting financial statements
► Distinguish cash flow and accrual accounting net income
► Understand what drives shareholder value in a company
The simulation is organized into turns of play, where each turn represents one business quarter. Each quarter, teams jointly make decisions in four key areas: sales/marketing, operations, research, and finance. The simulation is a web application, permitting many different online and offline approaches to delivery. Trained instructors facilitate the simulation, coach participants, and debrief the outcomes to ensure the simulation experience translates into learning results."
