Bringing neighbours closer
Welcome to the Interreg V-A Latvia–Lithuania Programme 2014–2020!About the programme
20 June 2018
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.
