New Case Studies published on Bioteams Business Games
The first game is a "company war game" where the HR teams become the senior executive team in their own business. Over 1-2 days they run their business for 3 years and as well as making all the key operational and strategic decisions also have to deal with real issues such as competitor price changes, supplier problems and misleading media stories!
