On the afternoon of Tuesday 16th December 2014 a group of students had the opportunity to play the game ‘Business On the Move’. Students were from Key Stage 4 and 5, currently studying either Logistics (level 2) or A Level Business Studies.
With the object of the game being to complete 4 deliveries to designated businesses, it was interesting to see how the students aimed to achieve this. Some were prepared to take risks and didn’t mind spending a lot of their money, whilst others were more cautious and budgeted carefully! Strategies clearly changed as the game progressed and competition increased as business decisions were influenced and altered by the actions of their competitors!
It was an enjoyable afternoon and gave students the opportunity to experience and understand in a practical sense what they are learning in their studies. It highlighted not only the complexities of business and the supply chain, but also the need to be astute at all times!
Our thanks go to Sarah Skinns at CILT Head Office for facilitating the afternoon.
