How to select organizational leaders, boosting their competencies at the same time? To achieve just that, companies turn to gamification.
The application period for the largest global virtual business simulation game, the Global Management Challenge (GMC), is under way. GMS is an annual business management competition attracting hundreds of managers, specialists and students competing for a managerial excellence trophy. It is unparalleled as a training boosting soft&hard skills as well as business awareness. Hence the growing corporate interest in this unusual venture.
The global 39th Global Management Challenge finals are barely over. Gamification means, in other words, playing games and competing. The Global Management Challenge (GMC) simulation include managers, specialists, graduates and students tasked with assuming roles of board members for a virtual company. For several weeks they manage the company so as to generate the best financial result on the virtual market. Corporate and student teams play at the same time, competing with one another simultaneously. Teams are split into groups competing to generate the highest financial result, with one team’s decisions affecting the competitors from a given group, resulting in full interaction between the participants. Each game continues for five business decision cycles. „I can recommend GMC to anyone interested in management and entrepreneurship, willing to try their hand at taking real business decisions. As one of the Polish GMC participants noticed, even though the game environment is developed artificially, it does not want for challenges and rules changing just as we are finally starting to think we got a grasp on what’s going on. This is guaranteed to bring emotions to the table.” – says Karolina Zawiślak – Karolkowska, GMC Polska Project Manager.Download a press release
