Business simulation game/exercise


I am due to commence a training programme for junior managers who are about to take up their first commercial management roles in a retail/wholesale environment. I wish to run a business simulation exercise/game as part of the programme, maybe 3-4 hours in duration.
Does anyone have anything similar they wish to share or can recommend. Most of the commercially available ones I have found appear too complicated or involved for the group concerned. What I need is something simple yet effective.
Issues I would ideally like to address are the achievement of profit through the effective use of people and resources (although I appreciate this might be a lot to ask)
Any ideas or suggestions would be most welcome.

  4. Not paper but reality!
    We have a business simulation that can be adapted for any trading environment. It matches short term to srategic decision making. Branch, area and support relationships and agendas and is very strong for relationship management, targeting, buisiness information and control compliance and quality issues – best of all however, it is practical rather than a dry paper / IT based product, so is genuinely engaging, fun and memorable. It has been extenisvely used by multi outlet retailers and uis particularly suited to financial services. Get in touch, if you want something just a little different to the norm!
