Assessing Individual Performance in a Total Enterprise Simulation


  • Ricardo R. S. Bernard


Although empirical studies have demonstrated there is no positive correlation between simulation performance and learning, in almost all business simulation exercises such indicator is used to evaluate participants. Considering that in real-world individual are usually evaluated by performance, and rarely by learning, it is justifiable to continue using simulation performance as an assessment indicator. Therefore, this paper extends existing literature presenting a methodology to assess individual performance in a total enterprise simulation course. Findings of first applications using such methodology are reported. Advantages of the devised methodology are also discussed.
