Business Simulations | Business Games | Business Training Games

Our business simulations (some call them business games or business training games) give delegates an opportunity to make real business decisions in a safe, risk-free environment, see the impact of changing variables and learn immediately from costly mistakes. Ideal for a half or full day's training and popular for Conferences and Awaydays. Great for teamwork and decision-making too! Thoroughly motivating!

Key lessons of business simulations:

  • Teams need to set a strategy for their business - but will they stick to it or be blown off course by changing circumstances?
  • Decisions are required on staffing, pricing, marketing and investment - but costs need to be covered by sales revenue. Can teams get control of the figures?
  • Making business decisions is not easy. Diversify or stick to the core business? Expand or stay safe? Will all team members agree on the best way forward?

Businesses depend on people. Teams need to analyse the data, resolve conflicts, reach agreement and be committed to the business - and each other!
