BSG Comprehensive Exam

 

The Comprehensive Exam is arguably the most difficult exam in the BSG arsenal. No amount of memorization or understanding of financial formulas will help you. There is very limited help for the comprehensive exam because most people don’t even understand the Business Strategy Game by itself, let alone to take an exam on the intricacies of BSG at a glance.

 

If you need someone to talk to in regards to this exam of what you can expect or how to prepare, feel free to email me at my website here.

In the meantime, you can think upon this sample question.

 

In determining whether It is economically advisable to invest $3.5 million per million pairs of capacity for a plant facilities upgrade that will boost labor productivity by 25%, it is accurate to say that the resulting drop in labor costs per pair produced
1.  will be $0.15 (from $0. 75 to $0.60) at a plant where total annual compensation per employee is currently $3,000 and labor productivity is 4,000 pairs per worker-the labor cost reduction would be a far larger $1.20 per pair at a plant where total annual compensation per employee is currently $24,000 and labor productivity is 4,000 pairs per worker.
2.  will be the same for all of the company’s plants because the gains in labor productivity are 25% irrespective of what other differences In labor-related conditions may exist.
3. will be greater for Asia-Pacific plants with 8-milllon pairs of capacity than for Asia-Pacific plants with 4-million pairs of capacity.
4. will be greatest at plants where total annual compensation is comparatively low and labor productivity is comparatively high.
5. will be smallest at plants where total annual compensation is comparatively high and labor productivity is also comparatively high.

  19. What is the answer to your comprehensive exam sample question?

    Reply
  20. Good question. *Answer Revealed*

    If there’s a 25% increase in productivity. 4000 shoes produced x 1.25 = $5,000. So the cost benefit would be $3000/ 5000 shoes = $0.60. Or what is 15 cents lower than the existing status quo of 4,000 shoes at $3,000 ($3000/4000 shoes = 0.75).

    In the other example, it is $24,000/ 4,000 shoes. Therefore it is $6 per shoe.

    If production increases by 25% it is $24,000 / 5,000 = $4.8 per shoe.

    You would do the upgrade in the second plant as you save more money per shoe.

    Answer A is correct.
