Low-Tech: Finance Board Games

Enhance understanding of financial dynamics.

Boardgames are limited-scope exercises that utilize a gameboard and moveable gamepieces. The tool can be very powerful in “spotlighting” the inner workings of specific financial transactions and concepts to help drive an understanding of the impacts that business decisions have on the financial statements. These highly interactive exercises immerse users, who are often unfamiliar with finance, into the details of financial transactions and helps bring the financial statements to life.

“Most small business owners and future leaders are not privy to advanced business acumen courses unless they had the opportunity in college, so the course was very valuable for our group. The simulation is impressive because it combines critical leadership skills into a learning forum that is so different from what anyone has ever experienced before. The simulation is sophisticated so it is impossible to leave without critical, implementable takeaways. The participants learn from doing, have a strong discussion around strategy. The course plays beautiful to the ego of any quality employee willing to participate, want to win and have fun in the process. Our clients were also impressed by the combination of presentation/lecture with teamwork/simulation work. It is hard to keep people engaged for 2.5 days, but PriSim was uniquely superb.” – Vice President, MarshBerry

Medium-Tech: What-If Tools

Sophisticated “whole-business calculators” that allow users to change a limited number of variables to quickly display a projected, multi-year business result. In a staff meeting or even individually, users can engage with this calculator to examine scenarios that illustrate how specific actions (or lack of action) affect real world business results.
