Our Board game seminar conveys basic managerial accounting in a playful and hands-on manner.

Divided into teams, the participants are challenged to actively lead their own organization. In doing so, they literally see (and hear) how their money increases or diminishes on the board, induced through their own corporate decisions. We offer the seminar as open program on fixed dates and as inhouse solution.

The Board Game Seminar ‘Financial Basics’ does not require any prior business knowledge. The seminar conveys the basics of the topic ‘finance and controlling’. Based on easily comprehensible business processes, the internal and external accounting system is gradually illustrated.

During the Board Game Seminar ‘Financial Basics’ the participants experience,

  • …how operative and strategic decisions influence their business and how they are reproduced in the cost accounting,
  • …why this information is helpful in order to make target oriented corporate decisions and
  • …which influence and impact their own decisions have on the company as a whole.

During the individual business periods the participants get involved in detail with the figures of their company. Based on the corporate processes they illustrate the thereby resulting monetary flow by moving coins on the board. The result is an entire annual financial statement which they generate all by themselves. This then is the basis for important business analysis and key figures which the teams work on together in detail.

Cash flow, inventory, profit and the rate of return are core issues within the cockpit of an organization. They ensure financial transparency, which in the first place makes complex organizations controllable. Like this, success and failure turn both visible and measurable. A highly skilled trainer conducts the teams through the entire seminar and above all gives them professional input.

The MARGA board game was used as part of our first-time onboarding program for our new commercial trainees. The seminar conveyed the functionality of a company and especially the fundamentals of accounting in a comprehensive and practical manner and thus made an important contribution to the new training program of our management trainees. The feedback from the participants concerning the onboarding program as well as the market-leading business simulation MARGA was thoroughly positive.
