Dashboard Simulations launches Educational Business Sim Bundle – discounts for Universities and Colleges!

Article by Ken Thompson, 20 Aug 2017

DESKTOP SIMULATIONS   (View our CORPORATE SIMULATIONS instead)

In addition to our comprehensive range of web-based business simulation games for teams Dashboard Simulations also offers a powerful collection of 5 DESKTOP SIMULATIONS which run on Windows computers and are a practical solution to team-based experiential learning in environments where internet access is not practical or reliable. 

These simulations have been developed in partnership with industry subject matter experts and leading practitioners and have been tried and tested in large commercial organizations. They have also won awards from major bodies such as the Chartered Institute for Personnel Development (CIPD). 

DESKTOP SIMULATIONS can also easily be distributed with the right to make unlimited copies within the same organization. Each Simulation comes with a comprehensive facilitator's manual and runs in Excel (enhanced with VBA macros) thus requiring no specialized software to be installed on the computer and so easy to install (not requiring admin rights).

These simulations can be fully played over a full day or played one round at a time. With introduction, theory sessions and review sessions the simulations can provide the backbone to a full semester’s course on key business management topics such as Team Leadership, Collaboration Skills, Project Management, Business Acumen, Crisis Management, Customer Service, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Lean Manufacturing

DESKTOP SIMULATIONS are provided with full source code which means they can also be modified or enhanced by the organization. Enhancing these simulations can also provide very practical, engaging and satisfying student group projects during the term.
