Online Competition Final: Shu Wie Goh and Bee Hui Koh

Finalists Shu Wie Goh and Bee Hui Koh, Robert 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.“

Online Competition Final: Sandor Acs

Finalist Sandor Acs, Robert Bosch

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.

Online Planspiel Finale: Thomas Wäschebach

Finalist Thomas Wäschebach, Hettich Holding

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.

Björn Peiter, former participant of the LDP, Deutsche Telekom AG

‘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.'

Finalist Juliane Petersen, Robert Bosch GmbH

„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."

Finalist Axel Delker, REWE Zentral AG

„MARGA offers the rare possibility to learn from expensive mistakes at a convenient price.“

Finalist Anna-Lena Schulz, Volkswagen AG

„One team, six people on four different continents and one decision to make - it is just great which possibilities we have today.“

Finalist Christian Beyer, E.ON

„The immediate and competent support by the whole MARGA-Team creates a private feeling. One easily forgets that you are actually attending an online competition.“

Finalist Gordana Maksimovic, Rothe Erde GmbH (ThyssenKrupp)

„In fact MARGA is quite time-consuming, but eventually you realize that your commitment is worthwile and you learn a whole bunch of new things.“

Finalist Gerrit Möller, E.ON Anlagenservice GmbH

„We consequently sticked to our strategy and did not let it happen to be mislead by the competition. This approach took us straight to the finals.“

Finalist Elisabeth Heidenreich, E.ON Bayern

„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.“

Finalist Jan Wolff, RWE Power AG

„Without any economical background we were promoted to be the executive board of our MARGA company for six months. This made it possible for us to experience being an entrepreneur.“

Simon Krämer, Teilnehmer des FESTO Bildungsfonds, TU München

„Being in a virtual team which is spread over whole Europe and experiencing and controlling the complex interrelation in a company resulted in a huge transfer of knowledge for me.“
