Course description

Interplay™: Business Acumen Simulation

Gain high-level business acumen with an interactive 'mini MBA-in-a-day' simulation.

Interplay is an enlightening business simulation that has been called a “mini MBA-in-a-day” simulation for good reason: Managers and professionals learn about running all aspects  a company and how their decisions impact overall results.

Leaders develop C-level capabilities by immersing participants in an intense practice field that reflects the real challenges of managing knowledge and resource capital. During the simulation, leaders compete to develop strong business capabilities in those areas crucial to business success: decision-making, value creation, resource negotiation, cross-functional collaboration, strategic thinking, and business and financial acumen.

Interplay creates an exciting and enlightening real-world business atmosphere in which participants gain a fresh perspective about the complex drivers of business success. During this fast-paced simulation, teams of 4 to 5 manage competing companies. To succeed, each team of managers must determine a strategic focus and skillfully manage all the assets of their company in line with that focus.

Participants are required to make scores of decisions as they manage the tangible (financial), customer and external (sales and marketing), people (human resource), and organizational (internal process) assets of their company. They must plan and allocate resources, satisfy demanding customers and employees, make decisions under conditions of uncertainty, manage through critical market events, and prepare and report financial statements.

Interplay includes interactive learning tools, custom situations, and challenging group exercises. Market events, internal/external projects, and organizational and financial metrics can be customized to each organization.
