Business Simulation Game (Production) in Daugavpils

Current business simulation game took place on an unusually hot autumn day, 19 September 2018, in Daugavpils. Six teams containing players from six different Latvian and Lithuanian cities met in a modern audience of the Daugavpils University to emerge into the reality of a production company “PlayGame”. Before the battle, the players invented names for their teams: Fantastic Six, Quizzers, Life is a Game, Starting 6, Super Team and LARROM. The bright sun cheered them up from large panoramic windows and the game began.

This time, project partners prepared a game about a manufacturing company “PlayGame” offering three board games: Memory (Memo) Game, “Create your fairy tale” Game and Port of Riga Quiz. The participants had a chance to hold the games in their hands and even play them for a short while. Afterwards, a story behind the company creation was revealed.

“BE INVOLVED” SEMINAR IN KLAIPEDA

The fifth “Be involved” seminar designed according to an interactive “Get inspired – help – share – analyze” concept took place in Klaipeda on 12 July 2018. The event was held at Klaipeda Science and Technology Park, a centre focused on promoting an innovative entrepreneurship environment in the region. Participants from six Latvian and Lithuanian cities arrived to the venue to listen to success stories of major businesses in the area, meet representatives of newly-established companies and discuss positive and negative scenarios of their further development, get acquainted with potential start-ups, and consider an interesting business case from Lithuania.

The first one to take the floor was Algirdas Sabaliauskas, a Talent Scout from Baltic Talents Academy – a vocational educational institution providing courses in programming, design and other digital disciplines. During the event, he emphasized how crucial it is to bring value to students, employers and state, as well as mentioned that building a brand recognition in the field of education is a long and complicated process that can take several years.

Afterwards, Mr. Darius Šoparas presented his company Creative Partner, which has been offering IT solutions, including websites and mobile applications, since 2000.  Darius also gave a valuable advice to seminar participants regarding launching new products. “If you have an idea, it must be on the market within three months! Do not try to do something complex at once: create a minimal viable product (MVP) and test your concept,” – he said.

Business Simulation Game, Wholesale in Jelgava

The second business simulation game with a topic “Wholesale” was conducted in Jelgava on 14 June 2018. Players from six Latvian and Lithuanian regions splitted into five teams: Sveiki, Transformers, Future, Super 8 and Shining Stars. “Every step you take can change the world,” – that is how a slogan of one of the teams sounded. The captain of another team emphasized the necessity to look ahead and act rapidly. “Don’t look at the past, look at the future. Technologies are developing very fast, so should we,” – he said. After all the teams presented themselves, the game began.

Even though short verbal tasks were definitely an exciting part of the game, which boosted analytical and creative thinking, the main focus was placed on BLOOM – a young Latvian wholesaler offering unique products from South Korea. The company sold rice cookers for various kinds of rice that keep it fresh and warm for up to 3 days, funny animal-shaped air moisturizers, portable mini ventilators that can be used outside and inside, and electric blankets.
The players had to analyze three complex situations concerning BLOOM, discuss them in teams, identify solutions and present them in front of the audience. The work of the teams was assessed by the jury and an invited expert in entrepreneurship.

Pirmā biznesa simulācijas spēle jauniešiem-Jelgavā

13. decembrī no plkst. 10.00 līdz 16.00 LLU Ekonomikas un sabiedrības attīstības fakultātē notika pirmā biznesa simulācijas spēle, kurā piedalīsies 36 jaunieši no Latvijas un Lietuvas, lai attīstītu radošumu, trenētu komandas, līderības, diskusiju vadīšanas kompetences un uzņēmējdarbībai nepieciešamo domāšanu. Simulācijas metodikas pamatā  izmantota reālu uzņēmumu pieredze un problēmsituāciju risināšanas piemēri.

“Jau iepriekš fakultātē esam attīstījuši sadarbību ar uzņēmējiem, un studentiem organizējuši līdzīgas biznesa simulācijas spēles, taču tām bija cits mērķis – palīdzēt uzņēmējam inovatīvi risināt kādu viņam svarīgu problēmu. Taču tā kā studentiem nebija iespēju detalizēti iepazīties ar uzņēmuma vidi, viņu priekšlikumi ļoti bieži bija attālināti no reālās situācijas un labumu uzņēmējam nedeva. Šobrīd izmantojam citu pieeju – dosim iespēju jauniešiem iegūt informāciju par pētāmo uzņēmumu, piedāvāsim reālu problēmsituāciju, ar kuru uzņēmums ir saskāries un kuru vienlaicīgi risinās vairākas jauniešu grupas, un ļausim viņiem radīt idejas, analizēt un apspriest tās,” stāsta Ekonomikas un sabiedrības attīstības fakultātes dekāne Andra Zvirbule.

Simulācijas galvenais mērķis ir veicināt jauniešos biznesa domāšanu, nevis meklēt risinājumus uzņēmējam. Turklāt simulācijas noslēgumā jaunieši tiks iepazīstināti ar uzņēmuma pieredzi, kā tas realitātē ir atrisinājis simulācijā analizēto problēmu.

Biznesa simulācijas spēle norisinājās   Interreg V-A Latvijas – Lietuvas pārrobežu sadarbības programma 2014. – 2020.gadam  “Ready for Business” LLI 143 ietvaros. Tās metodiku ir izstrādājuši LLU ESAF pētnieki sadarbībā ar visiem projekta partneriem no Latvijas un Lietuvas. Projekta mērķis ir veicināt ilgtspējīgas uzņēmējdarbības attīstību pārrobežu reģionos, izmantojot inovatīvus uzņēmējdarbības atbalsta instrumentus un risinājumus.

Simulācijā piedalīsies jaunieši no LLU, Daugavpils Universitātes, Ventspils Jauniešu domes, Viseginas Radošuma mājas, Klaipēdas Zinātnes un tehnoloģiju parka un Paņevēžu Darba tirgus apmācību centra. Lai īstenotu simulācijas spēles aktivitātes, tiks izveidotas sešas jauniešu grupas, izmantojot lozēšanu un veicinot dažāda vecuma un tautību jauniešu sadarbību vienas grupas ietvaros.

Spēles metodikas izveidē izmantota projekta dalībnieku apkopotā informācija no 60 Latvijas un Lietuvas uzņēmēju intervijām, kurās viņi stāstīja par sava uzņēmuma izveidošanu, darbību, plānošanu, problēmsituācijām un to risinājumiem.

LLU Jelgavā plānotā biznesa simulācija būs pirmā simulācijas spēle, kurai sekos vairākas spēles citās vietās Latvijā un Lietuvā. Izmantojot tajās gūto pieredzi, LLU mācībspēki kopā ar partneriem izstrādās IT rīku – biznesa spēles simulatoru -, kuru jaunieši varēs brīvi izmantot kā palīgu biznesa domāšanas treniņiem. Savukārt Ekonomikas un sabiedrības attīstības fakultātē spēles metodika tiks izmantota studiju procesā jauno vadības zinātņu, ekonomikas un socioloģijas specialitāšu studentu profesionālo kompetenču attīstīšanā.
