Team & Leadership as focus in the business game

Participants in the MARGA Business Simulation manage a company with all its divisions and functions. As a team, they align their own range of products and services with the needs of customers and markets. They are in direct competition with other teams and develop their own competitive strategies. If the focus is on “Team & Leadership”, the participants are accompanied by expert and experienced coaches. We develop flexible programs for you with a focus on “Team & Leadership” as an in-class seminar or blended learning program. In doing so, we focus on your target groups and your organizational framework.

What our customers say

MARGA has been an established partner for many customers since 1971. Our partners use MARGA successfully in various target groups across all industries.

The great thing about MARGA is that the focus is on the team as a unit: Whenever we have not fully discussed our decisions, the result was not the one we were aiming for.

In the business games, the team spirit that emerges among the participants can be felt time and again. It quickly becomes clear that the success of the simulation game depends on efficient teamwork. The motivation to be successful as a team is high right from the start.

Team Performance:
developing team

Efficient teamwork forms the basis for a company’s success and is a key competence at all hierarchical levels. In the MARGA business game, the entire team has entrepreneurial responsibility. The simulation puts the participants in operational decision-making situations in which they have to find their role in the team and bring the team as a whole to its goal. The decision-making process allows participants to experience how teamwork works in a goal-oriented business context and beyond.

Teamarbeit im MARGA Planspiel
  • What roles exist and how are these roles distributed in the team?
  • How do you compensate for missing role competencies? What conflicts can this lead to and how do you deal with them professionally as a team?
  • How do you deal with defeats as a team and how do you celebrate successes?On request, our team trainers will observe the group dynamic processes in the simulation team as well as the behavior of the individual team members. In the subsequent discussion, they can provide valuable tips and individual feedback. Targeted expert contributions in the plenary session, which place what has been experienced in your own team in a general professional context, round off the team development process in the simulation game.

Frau macht sich Notizen

Managing a long-term successful (MARGA) company requires different skills:

  • The development of a strategic vision and the implementation of an innovative strategy in a dynamic and competitive market environment.
  • An agile way of working that is forward-looking, proactive and flexible at the same time.
  • The ability to be ambidextrous, i.e. to be both efficient (to exploit what already exists) and flexible (open to exploring new things).
  • Efficient collaboration across functions and business units is one of the key challenges, just as it is in reality.

Team & Leadership as focus

The participants

  • develop entrepreneurial thinking and acting
  • are confronted with realistic decision making situations within a complex business environment.
  • weigh up entrepreneurial risks and mae real decisions.
  • are under pressure to make decisions and have to take responsibility.
  • train their own roles as decision makers.
  • consciously work with different personalities and roles within their teams.
  • manage all closely interlinked company divisions and functions.
  • transfer strategic decisions into operative measures.
  • use financial information and make substantial decisions.
  • get to know the drivers that positively influence the value of the company.

Realistic market environment
A realistic and dynamic corporate environment reflects current political and economic events, which repeatedly presents new challenges to the teams.

The team with the highest company value wins the competition. The identification with their own company and the direct competition between the teams arouses emotions and enthusiasm.

The ‘learning by doing’ method and the repeated application of what has been learned promote the practice transfer into their own work area and result in a sustainable learning effect.

The management of a company requires a high degree of communication and organizational skills. The team members take responsibility and develop strategies together. An efficient planning and decision-making process thus becomes a critical success factor. The distribution of roles, constructive conflict management and dealing with success and defeat create valuable basic leadership skills.

Personal Coaching
Qualified and experienced coaches observe the ongoing team processes and provide feedback and valuable hints on team performance, personal behavior and individual development.
