Malatya, a large Turkish town in Eastern Anatolia, plans to introduce trolleybuses to its streets. It has invited firms to submit tenders for the project.
In a first round of the game, players are part of a consortium bidding for the job. They negotiate the assignment of tasks among themselves, based on capability and preference.
The second round plays in Malatya. The consortium leader defends the consortium’s bid against those of the competitors.
The aims of the Trolleybus Game are:
- Demonstrate the relationships in a complex negotiation.
- Show potential problems that could arise in a catchy way.
- Improve negotiation, argumentation, consensus building and cooperation skills.
The business game is aimed at employees, who should experience the process of negotiation and interactively develop argumentation, cooperation and consensus building skills. Hence, the Trolleybus Game is not limited to a particular organizational unit.
The Trolleybus Game is currently only offered in Switzerland.
