International Business Game Creation

Managing The Future

Using the Thinking Planning Implement / Executing Philosophy (TPI/E™)

This screen creates a new Internation Business game including the base parameters, Features Table, Ad Plan Table, Market populations and Conuntry Economic parameters. Once submitted a Game Code will be assigned which should be provided to the student to register. Remember to provide the Game Code to your students to register. You can delete a game anytime before it starts or after it has been completed. It is not necessary for you to modify the starting baseline parameters however the capability is provided. On this screen you can modify the following elements:

  • Year 1, 2, 3 and 4 Processing Date. This can be automatic or manual and represents the date the simulation will be updated for the year.
  • Company Bank Balance is the starting amount of capital in the bank account of the startup firm. This dollar amount can go up based on cash flow.
  • Maximum Commerical Loan and Commerical Loan Interest represent the amount of 'funding' available from commerical banks and the corresponding interest. The interest is charged each year.
  • Bonds and Bond Interest is similiar to the Commercial Loan except it is longer term.

The next set of elements refer to shares sold to raise Capital:

  • Starting Share Price - this will change yearly, per company (in a specific country) based on sales, cash flow, etc.
  • Shares - this is constant and represents the starting number of shares owned by the Company.
  • Family Investment Premium - a premium on the stock price for shares purchased by family members.
  • Professional Investment Discount - a discount on the stock price for shares purchased by professional investors.
  • Sellable Shares Yr 1, Yr 2, Yr 3 and Yr 4 - the maximum numberof shares that can be sold in a year across all countries.
Again, it is important to note that these values do not need to be changed only if you desire to emulate a specific environment using different values. These values can also be changed during any year and the impact will be reflected to the students during that year. Elements that represent years that have been processed cannot change. Once the game has been created, if you desire, you will be able to modify the Features Table, Ad Plan Table, Marketing Populationsand Country Economic Parameters. Tooltips are available for all parameters.
