With RealGame students learn Supply Chain Management and business competences in a compelling, accessible and efficient way.
In RealGame business simulation game student teams of 3-4 participants make decisions on manufacturing, distribution, marketing, sales and logistics and learn how to manage a company’s operating activities, supply chain and partner networks. Students can follow transaction specific information flows from supply chain operations, and learn the interdependencies of business processes, cash flow and profitability. This way, they understand how profitability is dependent on the efficiency of process management. With RealGame Business Intelligence they learn to analyse performance with the help of various KPIs. These are crucial competences in any real-world business organisation!
RealGame accommodates learning in classroom settings as well as hybrid and blended learning. Students can also join RealGame virtually and communicate in a virtual meeting space, such as Teams or Zoom.
RealGame simulation gaming can be divided to multiple learning occasions (e.g. 2 x 4 hours). Assignments, analyses and reflection papers assist in knowledge creation. Result sessions and debriefing allow for reflection, and deepen learning.
