Has anyone ever particpated in this simulation? I’m taking a strategic management class this semester as a capstone class for my degree. 40% of our grade is how well we do on this game. Everyone is in the business of selling athletic shoes and we have to compete against each other. It’s really overwhelming but exciting at the same time.

@EmilyJean: YES!! Just finished it for my MBA. I can send you the PDF results of each round. You just need to pick the company that does the best and make te same decisions they made for each round (maybe vary them slightly) and viola! Positive net income!
Update: wait….we are talking about differnet simulations I believe. I did not compete against my classmates and mine was not a specific product.

Ugh, yes, I had to do this when I was in grad school for, wait for it, library science! I don’t even remember what our companies were selling, and the simulation was a huge waste of time for us because we weren’t business majors and had no idea what we were doing. If we were managing a library in the simulation, it would’ve made sense. Essentially, the team who got the luckiest won in our class 🙂

Ugh, yes, in my Strategic Management class in undergrad in like 2005 or 2006. We were all put into teams and were competing against other teams in the class. It was called CapSim I think? God I hated it, although we did end up coming in 2nd out of 10 teams, so yay.

I did a similar simulation where we were selling bicycles. Our team’s company sucked! But we got a good grade because in our final presentation we pointed out our mistakes and lessons learned etc.
