Business Operations for Tomorrow’s Businesses.
The Biz Ops Game™ is a business simulation board game that teaches business operations in an experiential and fun way.
The game is played in small teams with a teacher/facilitator guiding the teams through the steps of operating a paper airplane transportation business. It is the perfect introduction to business operations as each team creates their own company that designs, decorates, manufactures, tests and sells paper airplanes.
How It Works
- The Biz-Ops Game™ is a fast-paced facilitated game that takes 60-90 minutes. Teams play simultaneously following the daily operations of a “real” business.
- Teams come up with a company name, get a loan from the “bank” (which they have to pay back with interest), purchase raw materials, buy office supplies, make and test their product and then demonstrate and sell it to the customer.
- They play multiple rounds of the game (as time allows) so they can improve their operations as they learn from their mistakes.
- Each team must come up with a budget and then track actual sales and expenses to create an income statement. The team with most profit at the end of the game wins!
The Biz Ops Game™ is one of our youth entrepreneur camp favorites and the kids continuously ask “when can we play it again?”
