Business Games (or Management Games, Business Simulators) refers to the training method for managers. This form of training is based on an artificial environment that simulates the real situation in the management of the organization, whether it’s planning, decision making, control, communications or management itself. Business games allow monitoring of the consequences of decisions, and respond naturally to various situations. Business games are part of a larger group of simulation games.
Business games in practice: Business games allow creation of the most complex problems, are strongly interactive and communication, problem solving and discussion play an important role. Management games can take different forms:
- Desktop business games (such as Monopoly)
- Computer games (e.g. various turn-based strategies, building games)
- Team learning games (e.g. through teambuilding)
