From the Classroom to the Laboratory: A Framework Proposal to Design a Management Laboratory


  • Pedro Primo Bristot
  • Rolf Hermann Erdmann


This work presents a framework to design a management laboratory. It was formulated through the analysis of 19 papers published in the literature using the Proknow-C method. Ten elements were extracted from these works to form the framework. These elements are as follows: Flexibility; Facilitators; Data collect; Team interaction; Feedback, Presentations; Theoretical basis; Realism; Processes and Artifacts. The dynamics of the framework were constituted of the interrelation of these elements. Its main goal is to define the requirements to design a management laboratory. The framework is recommended to educational institutions, and other organizations that intend to use games and simulations as teaching tools in a predominantly face-to-face manner.
