Effective Business Simulation


I am trying to find a decent business simulation that I can use of a group of 6 - 12 people.  I'm running a 2 day programme for very bright individuals with day one being about Finances for non-financial people and general business nouse.  Day two is to put all the learning in practice with some sort of simulation.
Having looked online, I'm nervous about the quality of what I've seen and would much prefer to use something that is recommended by somebody who has used it for real..
Have any of you used anything similar that you would recommend?
I would really appreciate any help or input with this as I am currently at a dead end.  Many, many thanks in advance,

  1. do you need a simulation ?

    Depending on your overall objective you may be better suited to give them a specific task to plan/explore in a business like way….for instance

    to arrange a company conference for y people for a budget of x

    or to arrange a fundraiser for a charity with a max outlay of y aiming to generate x.


    the CEO has decided that (s)he wants to take 25 top executives to Sandals in Trinidad for a team bonding week….what is it going to cost?

    I hope this helps


  2. Business Simulations


    Northgate Training offer some business simulations which are bought as packages. I have used some of their materials in the past and found them to be useful, incorporated with other learning.

    I have also worked with a training provider who tailors business simulations and can even design them specifically to suit your company. If you are unable to find something suitable and would consider this as an option I would happily recommend the provider I worked with and provide his details – just get in touch.

    Many thanks

  4. Yes please for your recommendation Roseanne

    Hi Roseanne,

    I have used Northgate stuff before with mixed results so would be interested to hear which ones you specifically got on well with.

    With regards to your contact who designs business simulations – I would be very grateful if you could pass those details on.

    Thank you very much  for taking the time to respond to my message.

    Many thanks
