You are invited to participate in a 3 day simulation from the16th to the 18th October in Oxford.
NegoSim is a computer-assisted business simulation in which teams of 4 or 5 participants are in charge of managing virtual companies that compete in international markets. Over a period of three days, the teams simulate six quarters (eighteen months) in the life of their companies. In doing so, they make six sets of business decisions on product portfolio, pricing, advertising, marketing, manufacturing, human resources, finance, international expansion, alliances, R&D projects, etc. NegoSim makes it possible to compare the relative performance of the various teams after each set of decisions, based on stock price and market-to-book. In NegoSim, companies not only compete but also cooperate by negotiating and signing outsourcing agreements, strategic alliances and production joint-ventures.
The start time on Monday, 16 October, will be13.30 at Worcester College, Oxford, OX1 2HB.The days will likely run until 21:00.
This is a great opportunity to learn from the leading experts in the field through an interactive approach.
The full cost of the simulation is covered by the Oxford Biodesign programme. I strongly advise you to attend if possible and make the most of this unique opportunity.
I expect everyone to attend all three days if you decide to register (approval from your line manager or supervisor might be needed). Please email myself and Jo Armitage -email@example.com – if you would like to attend, so that we can ensure that your place is booked. Places are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
