Vantagepoint business game is a great training tool for all, whether you are an entrepreneurially-minded individual, a person just wanting to learn more about the basics of running a business, or have been tasked by your company to find innovative training ideas.

The aim of the Vantagepoint business game is to teach players some of the fundamental business principles in a fun and interesting way. The game can also be played just for fun, with no regard for the lessons learned. Different objectives can be set at the start of the game for winning the game. Players can be individuals or in teams.

The game simulates the setting up and running of a trading company, where sales opportunities and cash flow must be maximised to enable growth. In addition to basic business principles, the game can be customised to convey a specific 'learning message', whether this be for a particular industry sector, a business value system, or to target a particular age group.

The business information guide (BIG) gives facilitators assistance in explaining common business topics whilst playing the Vantagepoint business game, promotes workshop discussion with students afterwards, highlighting all those business terms you really don't know much about or haven't heard of before!!

Whilst the guide is intended to assist the facilitator in identifying learning points from playing the Vantagepoint business game, it can also be used as a reference guide for the small business owner. The subjects covered are very diverse and give sufficient information to satisfy the immediate need, as well as reference points where you can find much more detail.
