Discuss the role of simulations as tools for replicating the competitive environment. Think about the value of simulations as learning tools and consider:

  • What can simulations do that case studies cannot?
  • Why have simulations become so widely used in so many professions?

The simulation requires you to function as a member of a multi-functional team. Consider the role of multi-functional teamwork in business decision making:

  • What is the purpose of multi-functional teams in business decision making?
  • How should multi-functional team decisions be made to obtain the benefits of multi-functional teams?
