Mission Possible – Using Simulation Games For Management Training in a Transition Economy


  • Witold T. Bielecki

One of the most popular empirical teaching methods is business simulation games. This is because simulation games verify knowledge not through knowing the definition, but through understanding problems, concepts and phenomena. Such a new phenomenon for the Polish managers is the market-driven economy since 1989. Using a typical description method (Dukes 1974), the authors of this paper wanted to share their experiences from several years of using management simulation games for training managers and entrepreneurs in a dramatically changing environment. The authors would like to explain the purpose of this game, the target audience, what the game is about and the context of use.
