The simulation is run on-line via the Learning Dynamics BLC simulation platform. All resources are available on-line together with multi-media help on our secure server.
Participants work in teams of 5 and they manage a key project within your company which takes them through the business cycle. They are taken through a series of business cycle topics and have to make choices between optional courses of action and give their reasons.

These choices are automatically scored by the simulation. Teams can see their scores – and the scores of other teams – each week.
