The methodologyAll these courses and modules contain concrete and quantitative examples in digital form, that the participants keep after the workshops. The exercises deploy simulation models and business games.
We prioritize the contents, applying the latest informacion technology not to show off, but in order to improve the efficacy, efficiency and user friendliness of the learning process.
programs are offered, all in the format of business simulation
All of them share some distinctive characteristics:
DiferenciationStudents and employers pay ever more attention at the cost / benefit ratio of the tranining programs.
If a program fails to deliver an applicable toolbox, will be discarded. It is no longer sufficient with the unidirectional teaching mode so loved by many business schools: it is also necessary to train for the action.
Business games workshops like these used to be avoided because ot their prohibitive cost - not any more.
These games are economically and easily implemented, allowing the participants the inmersion in a high efficient learn-by-doing process.
Teaching styleThey are theoretical-practical presential workshops.
They can be seen as an evolution of the case method: to solve the dynamic case in real time, quatitatively, with near instantaneous feedback, in competition with other teams.
The role of the instructor is crucial: this is nothing like a game in the cloud.
InternationalThe workshops are available in English and in Spanish. They are beeing used througout the Americas and Spain.

The simulation program and the database are located at the instructor's machine, which the teams' PCs access through a wired or wireless network.
Two frequent scenarios are:
Evolving in their didactic concept as well as in their IT platform, they are now MS VisualStudio applications.
They are deployed in college environment at ITBA, EOI, UTDT, UTN and MateriaBiz.
And in the corporate world at Techint, Siemens, Philip Morris, Coca Cola and others.
