Simulation exercises

"The European Question" Group exercise

For what purpose?: 
Individual or group: 

A British pharmaceutical factory is planning to extend towards Europe. The participants are provided with the basic parameters of the products and the European market, and have to decide in which country and according to what criterions to start consumer research. The European Question is an assigned role exercise. These exercises usually result in a more vivid argument between participants than unassigned role exercises.

"Nord Gas" Group exercise

For what purpose?: 
Individual or group: 

In this group exercise, participants have to play a team of external consultants who give strategic advice to a factory. Nord Gas is an unassigned role exercise. These exercises (due to all participants having the same role) are fairer than assigned role exercises.

"Bronzo" Group exercise

For what purpose?: 
Individual or group: 

A pharmaceutical company is about to launch a new product. The participants have to discuss conditions of the market, costs of advertisement, ethical questions etc., and decide whether launching the new product is indeed worthwhile. Bronzo is an unassigned role exercise. These exercises (due to all participants having the same role) are fairer than assigned role exercises.
