Business Games Handbook.
Graham, Robert G.; Gray, Clifford F.
The aim of this handbook is to provide training directors and all others interested in business games with an organized listing and description of business games and their sources; and to provide a source of sufficient data to help them select games for a particular purpose. The games are categorized as general purpose games, used in management and decision making; and particular purpose games, developed for use in decision making in particular occupational areas. The book is divided into three parts. The first part includes introductory readings aimed at introducing the concept of the game, use of general and special purpose games; and industry use of games for training. The second presents abstracts of more than 200 games currently being used--description, purpose, and administration of the game, sources of information, and decisions made by the participant. Occupational areas covered by industrial games include: advertising, aerospace, agribusiness, banking, forest products, insurance, petroleum, transportation, and retailing and wholesaling. The third part contains a bibliography of articles and books. (PT)
