I want to thank you for visiting my Business Strategy Game (BSG Online) website. Five years ago, I was sitting in a similar situation as you. My undergraduate business strategy teacher made us play the BSG-Online simulation for 40% of our grade. My team and I started the game with minimal knowledge and flailed for the first three decision rounds. We got our act together and began to study the game. I’m an excel and math geek and started to break the game down and understand it on a deep level. Two decision rounds later, I was ranking 3rd in the world. That summer, I played in the Business Strategy Game Best Strategy Invitational (BSI) and won that as well. I took first in the world seven out of ten decision rounds and won the BSI again when my MBA program used the McGraw Hill Business Strategy Game simulation as a learning tool also. I’ve created this website as a final project for an online marketing class (and to help me pick up an extra bar tab a month.) It has two components. A free section gives the casual reader some tips and tricks in class and a paid guide for people who are behind and need to catch up or students who want to save themselves the headache and win.
This free website and paid guide are a collection of the strategies I have used myself while winning the Business Strategy Invitational multiple times, seen work by my competitors at the highest level of play, and implemented on dozens of teams I’ve personally coached.
I was a poor undergraduate college student, too, at one point, and I understand your unwillingness to pay for an additional book. I highly recommend starting below with my free tips guide. Stick in your e-mail address, and the tips guide will be in your inbox instantly. No spam.
