Each edition begins with a team draw. Teams are organized into groups (each group with a maximum of 8 teams, and each team with a minimum of 3 and maximum of 5 team members).
Each group (of a maximum of 8 teams) creates a competitive market within which teams compete with one another.
Each team receives the company history and management reports detailing company performance for the last 5 [five] quarters.
Teams will outline a corporate strategy.
Each team will launch its strategy by making functions decision in different areas of the company (including but not limited to Marketing, Production, Human Resource and Finance).
By a specific deadline, teams submit Management Decisions (using the Decision Sheet) to the Simulator via the Internet.
The Simulator analyses and compares teams’ decisions and produces a Management Report, showing detailed results in financial and operational terms.
This process is repeated for 5 [five] quarters.
