There are three assignments due this unit, one of which is ongoing.
Ongoing Assignment: Team Simulation Quarter 1 (Review the Simulation details, teamwork details and peer evaluation instructions.)
Starting in this unit you will participate in a business simulation
exercise as part of a team process. Your instructor has set up teams and
logon information to the simulation. If you have not logged into the Team Area
below Unit 6 and into the simulation, please do so ASAP. The purpose
of the Marketplace Business Fundamentals Simulation is to explore your skills
(and those of your teammates) in managing the various aspects (functional
areas) of the business system, a key component of business acumen. The
simulation is a low-risk opportunity to test your problem-solving,
decision-making, leadership, and business acumen skills. The greater effort you
make to grapple with your business system, the better your learning regarding
what it will take to move you toward mastery of your professional objective.
This simulation will also be the organization you will use to develop the Final
Team Presentation. Quarter 1 of the simulation is due this unit.
