Enginuity 2014 Competition

Report
ENGINUITY 2015
The Global Business Management Competition
for the Construction Industry
Copyright Virtual Management Simulations
Introduction
The ENGINUITY 2015 Competition provides
management and leadership training that is
relevant and appropriate for today's construction
professionals worldwide, relevant because the
very nature of the Competition involves running
a GLOBAL CONSTRUCTION BUSINESS, giving
participants the opportunity to experience the
challenges that face their corporate management
on a daily basis.
Using a sophisticated computer simulation,
competing teams are given the task of managing
a fledgling UK-based multinational construction
business in a realistic economic climate relevant
to the global economy as it is today, and the
success or failure of their 'virtual' business
depends entirely on the decisions they make in a
number of key business areas.
ENGINUITY 2015 pits participating teams against
their colleagues and peers in a unique business
management experience.

Schedule
Stage 1: The Preliminary Rounds
This takes place over 8 weekly rounds during March and April.
During the Preliminary Stage, also known as the Early Years, each team competes for work against a
number of 'fictional' rival companies. Each one has their own unique profile and bidding history, and a
careful assessment of the opposition is required to formulate an effective procurement strategy. The
dynamics of this stage enable the teams to appreciate the impact of each decision they make.
Stage 2: The Final (‘Head to Head’)
The leading 12 teams at the end of the Preliminary Stage will be invited to compete in the
final, played over a further 6 rounds during 2 weeks in May, to determine the 2015 Champions.
During the final the teams compete against each other for not only work, but also the services of project
managers. This creates an even more uncertain and pressurized environment in which the skills and team
dynamics formed in the early years are really put to the test.
