Company-Building Contests

The 8 Company Building Simulation Contests serve as an engaging platform aimed at compelling participants to practice how to harmoniously put together the eight interrelated components of the Business Intelligence Model (BIM), all while evaluating their Financial Intelligence Quotient (FIQ). 

 

Comprising a total of eight contests, these events symbolize repetition and span a duration of two years, with each contest extending over a three-month period. Participants are required to submit bi-weekly status reports, providing a detailed account of their progress throughout the competition. 

 

The primary focus revolves around effectively addressing and integrating the eight interlinked components of the BIM. Utilizing a carefully calibrated scoring system ranging from 0 to 12 during status report assessments, the contests prioritize the demonstration of FIQ, emphasizing the application of unique insights and knowledge in tackling the model. 

 

The 0-12 scale serves as a metric for assessing participants' problem-solving capabilities, reflecting their preparedness to confidently confront substantial business challenges. This approach underscores the overarching objective of the contests: to nurture individuals equipped not only with theoretical understanding but also with practical skills essential for navigating and thriving in dynamic business landscapes.

 

The Business Intelligence Model

The Business Intelligence Model serves as more than just a theoretical framework; it embodies a comprehensive blueprint essential for the inception, management, and growth of any successful business venture. 

 

This multifaceted model underscores the paramount importance of several key elements, including a crystal clear vision, cohesive teamwork, effective leadership, and robust systems. 

 

At its core, the model is underpinned by sound financial management and unwavering legal compliance, ensuring the sustainable operation and growth of the business.

 

The 8 interrelated Components of the Business Intelligence Model include: 

  • Mission: Defines the business's purpose and vision. 
  • Team: Emphasizes a competent and cohesive team. 
  • Leadership: Crucial for strategic decisions and team guidance. 
  • Product: Focuses on high-quality, market-aligned goods/services. 
  • Legal: Covers business legal structure and compliance. 
  • Systems: Ensures efficient processes for consistency and scalability. 
  • Communication: Vital for conveying ideas and values internally and externally. 
  • Cash Flow: Manages finances for business health.
