But at the same time, the fight for resources and conflicting interests could affect the essense and the size of a goal, as well as the time required to achieve it.

 

That's the recipe for everyone to win: collect feathers in your own cap, contribute to achievements of your department, and get a bonus for the performance of the whole company. You have to see the big picture to avoid becoming a victim and maintain the balance of interests. This is what the “Version” is about.

In the beginning, the teams are in the same conditions. Rolling the dice, they face realistic circumstances that change the project. The game gives a clear answer to the question what is the cost of all those delays and deviations of course.

 

Sometimes, a project that looked just right on paper turns out to be ineffective after a seemingly harmless change of plans. Sometimes, it’s the opposite. The game tells about the connection between people, communications, document flow, actions and numbers.

Business game «Fish & Crabs»
