Launching the next carrer step with MARGA
A business simulation prepares High Potentials to take responsibility for their decisions and company. They consider the risks and chances, discuss advantages and disadvantages within their team and in the end make decisions and take the consequences of their actions. This process brings along a lot of room for discussions and requires an efficient division of labour. Therefore it is important to have leadership skills besides the managerial knowledge. This makes teamwork becoming a critical factor of success- not only in business simulations, but also in real life.
