Assignment Format for Business Simulation Game (Individual Report)

Business Simulation Game Individual Report Format and Structure
The suggested format and structure for this report is set out below.
Contents Page: The report should be clearly structured and follow a logical format. A contents page should be included which should adequately set out the structure of the report in a systematic way.
Introduction: State concisely but clearly what the report is about and the sequence of key tasks/events to follow.
Competitive Advantage: Describe how your company entered the industry (in each of the four markets in which you operated, and for all product types) and why?
As a Global Cost Leader; as a Global Differentiator; other.
External Overview Analyses: Awareness of the external environment and how it impacts on a company is a key strategic consideration. It is important then to describe: the state of the industry when you took over at the end of year 5; its competitive nature; and the opportunities and threats that existed for your company. You should support your answer with relevant strategic models/frameworks. You would need to carry out additional relevant (online) research to
inform/support your analysis of the external environment.
Internal Overview Analyses: Provide a clear but concise overview of the company you were about to take over at the end of year 5. What were its strengths and weaknesses?
