Ca$h2Ca$h™ Business Simulation:

If each of your employees knew the difference between profit and cash, how would their behaviors change and how much would that add to your bottom line and cash flow?

Great Game’s “Ca$h2Ca$h” Business Simulation is a board-based training that emphasizes the importance of cash in a business and helps participants understand their role in managing and improving cash flow. This hands-on course will help participants understand the daily cash challenges experienced by departments such as purchasing, production, sales, collections and finance. The simulation is based on the Ca$h2Ca$h cycle - the difference in days between when you paid cash and received cash. Participants in this course will see the end-to-end business process at work and come to understand the cause and effect of the cash cycle, as well as how the cycle can be reduced.

ProfitAbility™ Business Simulation:

If each of your people thought and acted like a business owner during their working day, how much would that add to your bottom line and cash flow?

Great Game's ProfitAbility Business Simulation is a board-based training that brings to life the essential know-how needed to run any business. This interactive
course teaches people exactly how profit is made, how cash flow is affected and how each individual can make a difference.  Participants compete in teams to run the most successful business, navigating through the monthly sales and delivery cycles and focusing on the decisions that really matter - those that impact the financial success of the business.

During this course, teams will use business acumen and strategy to make every decision a business owner would make: how to price their products, which contracts to compete for, how much stock to buy, how to finance investments and how to pay suppliers.
