Business simulator manual
Reality Development Corp's software teams have created numerous business simulations for use within major corporations and leading business schools. Now, with Business Simulator, independent executives and budding entrepreneurs can also experience the same powerful business simulation technology... Shortly, you will enter the first of five progressive levels of simulation. Each level challenges you, as the CEO, to make increasingly sophisticated business decisions and strategic choices. With Business Simulator, you can practice corporate strategy and then observe the results without the downside risk that comes with running a real world business. Business Simulator comes with four powerful features that help you succeed. Press the: [C] Consulting key - to get valuable expert advice when making decisions; [T] Tutorial key - to review key business terminology and concepts; [A] Analysis key - to help you evaluate your competitive status; [F1] Help key - to show you where you are in the program and which keys are available. If this is your first session, you should use the [F1] key liberally. Now imagine you are the President of a dynamic startup company formed to capitalize on newly available robot technology. To get started, your company forges a short-term relationship with a product supplier and successfully raises $500,000 in venture capital. As CEO, you now have control over all the decisions and resources needed to guide your company to over $1 billion in sales and gain multinational corporate status. * Your Mission: To successfully introduce, market, finance and develop this business opportunity. * Your Objective: To successfully manage through all five levels of the simulation, to maximize your personal wealth, and to defeat the competition. Your task will not be easy. Four giants in electronics, Tandy Corp., Texas Instruments, Hewlett-Packard, and Apple Computer have each recognized the market opportunity and have spun off intrapreneurial subsidiaries to capitalize on the potential. Your competition will be backed by these veteran companies and their young entrepreneurial CEOs. Refer back to the Business Plan and User's Guide and read Section 1 to find out more about your new competition.
