During the program participants have to form teams of 3-5, and take over the management of a fictitious company. Business decisions have to be made, which are evaluated by a computer model, representing the market and the economic environment. The key is to work together in a team, make decisions jointly, share experiences and ideas. And thus get closer to each other and try to learn to appreciate and anticipate each other better. Since effective management needs an overall view of all the company areas, the participants rely very much on each other – this is how it engages teamwork. With respect to other “classical” team-building training courses, the process goes automatically as team-members have to work jointly to accomplish a goal: managing a company. This is very professional and business like, so the learning outcomes can be linked to everyday work very easily.
