"The participation in the Online Competition was a really special training method, not just because of the business simulation itself, but mostly because of the great collaboration of our cross-functional JMP team. Thank you for the team spirit like a Bosch!"

„During our daily job, we don´t really have the chance to see the big picture. MARGA gave us the opportunity to look top-down and in this way we could see the impact of our single decisions on the final results.“

Before we started with the MARGA Online Competition, I definitely preferred face-to-face meetings. But as a part of my international MARGA team, I experienced how efficient and inspiring virtual teamwork can be. It makes you enter meetings in a well-prepared manner and thus is very time-saving. It is the perfect supplement to digital learning.

MARGA was a great educational training experience for us – which we can highly recommend. We all focused on a common objective over a period of six months. Eventually the thorough commitment of each team member, their courage and a constant training curve turned out as the key to success.

‘I experienced MARGA as a unique possibility to apply the so far only theoretically gained knowledge in a realistic and practical simulation from a decision-maker point of view; and at the same time experiencing the decision-making process within an interdisciplinary team.'

„Playing MARGA is challenging and requires time. The game is very complex and especially in the final phase of the game the rivalry is tough. It is more than an unique experience to make decisions out of this perspective and to anxiously wait for the results. The finals in the beautiful "Schloss Gracht" were an extraordinary end of our summer as MARGA boards."

„The idea behind the composition of the E.ON teams was to have members out of every division. There were people from the technological field, human resources, controlling, the purchasing deparment and the IT. Each member was able to contribute to the team with specific knowledge from studies and time as a trainee. If required there were also online-based learning aids from MARGA in addition to the feedback sessions. With all this background we were perfectly prepared for the upcoming tasks, even for the hard ones.“
