Business Simulations

This is a board game business simulation where learners become entrepreneurial executives, teams become corporate giants, and the classroom becomes an entire industry.  It is an ideal environment for learning—everything has immediate application to the game board entity, and is directly transferable to the real world.

Income/Outcome business simulations present real-world drivers of real-world business.  You can use Income/Outcome to meet a range of financial and business acumen training needs—from workforce development to leadership programs to major strategic initiatives.

The more your leaders and employees know about running a business, the more successful your business will be.

The workshops, ranging from ½-day to 2-days, weave the introduction of formal planning and analytic tools into the game.  At the end of the competitive segment, the learning transitions from the simulation to a visualization of the client’s real-world business results and its competitive environment.  Learners examine the priorities and challenges of the company, with the same fresh big-picture understanding that they developed during the simulation.  Everyone can visualize and understand the range of impact they have on the company:  profitability, cash flow, working capital, customer service, and more.
