– but not just games.
The goal of the portal is to create value in learning, providing
opportunities to experiment with aspects of general management
and issues linked to specific corporate functions.
A variety of managerial skills and capacities can be developed
through the portal’s simulation tools.
Regardless of the training goal, the experiential learning method
provides proven effectiveness, developing control capabilities
for quantitative factors and heightening teamwork skills.
Through simulations, managers experiment, acquire more in-depth
knowledge, develop skills, and put into practice what they’ve
learned at a theoretical level, verifying the relationships in
cause and effect systems connecting decisions and results.
Familiarization with quantitative factors favours a familiarity
with numbers, leading to improvements in analytical skills, in
seeking and identifying information, the orientation of goals,
elaborating strategies and tactics, and enhancing problem solving
At a team level, group work conducted in a group situation obliges
participants to share methods and procedures, and identify goals
and strategies, crucial factors in building a successful team.
The list of training and learning factors doesn’t stop
here, indeed, a detailed list would require an entire website
to emphasise other aspects, such as inter-disciplinarity and integration
between functions, customer orientation, the quality of business
planning, respect for realization times in enacting strategies
and operative activities, economic evaluations of alternatives,
the identification of returns on investments, the capacity to
read markets as well as their evolution and needs, the search
for and use of information.
