In many companies, if you mention the words ‘business literacy’ employees immediately get the shakes. Unfortunately, many companies’ training programs don’t help matters much. The teachers lecture employees in often long, information overloaded classes like the employees are cramming for a CPA exam. Sound familiar? It doesn’t have to be this way! In fact, teaching and learning business can be interesting, and maybe even a little fun.
Note to the wise: Nothing can duplicate the informal, practical learning that comes with keeping score and huddling around the real numbers day in and day out. But, there is definitely a place for formal financial training – if it’s done right.
Rules of Play was designed to introduce the employee base to the concept of Open-Book Management and the processes of The Great Game of Business, as well as provide them with a general understanding of the balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement. The workshop ends by placing financial literacy into the context of The Great Game of Business so that the participants understand how they will be using “the numbers” to help drive success for their company and for themselves. This workshop provides the fundamentals of business and financial literacy your employees need in order to be contributing members of the team. This facilitated training is tailored to service and manufacturing industries and can be customized to your specific industry and organization.
