It is appropriate for you to reflect on the simulation in relation to the MBA 5900 course overall, your MBA program overall, your other MBA courses specifically, your work and career experiences past, present and future, and other relevant constructs such as leadership, ethics, global competition, and political/legal/environmental/technological/demographic/diversity/productivity issues. 5. There are many aspects of the simulation about which you might reflect, including the decisions made, group processes, how decisions were made, reacting and adapting to simulation results, effectiveness of strategies employed, etc. You may also find particular topics (e.g. leverage, inventory management, labor issues, marketing, financing, product development, etc.) interesting or …show more content…

I had never experienced a game/simulation like Capstone and felt I might have a disadvantage since it was not my final semester of the MBA program. My initial reaction to the simulation was that it was confusing and …show more content…
