The Business Simulation Experience

Advantexe’s business acumen and management simulations are interactive learning tools that challenge participants and help them to learn about the systemic nature of business. Used as the centerpiece of Advantexe's Business Acumen and Strategic Business Selling learning journeys, our simulations are sophisticated computer-based activities in which teams of participants take control of a global company and play it for several operating periods.  Working in a complex and competitive simulated marketplace, teams compete against each other for market share, brand awareness, and customers. They are responsible for total simulations management by overseeing total business operations including setting policy, sales, marketing, business-simulation-screen-350manufacturing, R & D and supply chain. They analyze business performance using financial reports, key financial ratios, and other critical business metrics of success.  Ultimately, the objective of the simulation is to create value for their shareholders, customers, and employees.

Application:

So much more than a simple "business game," Advantexe's simulations require participants to contemplate business management in a holistic and systemic way, where knowledge in the areas of strategy, sales, finance, marketing, operations, and leadership is synthesized and integrated into the exercise. Participants make decisions and see the results of those decisions immediately in a risk-free learning environment.

Our simulations develop top  skills in many areas, including:

  • Executing business strategy
  • Understanding customer segmentation and market demand
  • Evaluating competition
  • Analyzing customer needs and trends
  • Assessing internal strengths and weaknesses
  • Determining the value of R&D investment and innovation
  • Appreciating the complexities of manufacturing and supply change management
  • Recognizing the impact operational decisions have on financial performance

Industry Specific

Advantexe simulations reveal that certain basic frameworks of business strategy and execution can be applied to any business ecosystem.  We customize for clients across all industries including, technology, financial services,  professional services, specialty chemicals, healthcare, produce distribution... just to name a few.
