The BIZCAFESIMULATION & WRITTEN REPORT (20%)In order to provide you with a realistic hands-on opportunity to manage a business, the BizCafesimulation will be used. This simulation requires you to make decisions pertaining to operating a coffee shop. At the end of the semester you will submit a report describing and summarizing your work on BizCafe.The BizCafe assignment is handled as follows: First you will obtain a welcome e-mail from the simulation provider (interpretive.com) with your user ID and password. (If you do not receive this by the 2ndclass, let me know ASAP!) You will then go to the simulation website noted above and click on the log-in tab to enter your individual user ID and password. You will follow the on-screen directions to complete the registration process. You will pay a fee. I will be informed on a regular basis about who has not yet registered and paid or played the simulation. Failure to get started by the 4thweek will begin to cost you points on the grade that you will receive for the BizCafe written report and for your overall business professionalism. Before you start playing the game for real,you will have access to a practice session. You will each be playing as an individual not as a member of a team, and you will be playing in the benchmark mode against the computer rather than competitively against other students in the class. You will advance at your own pace through 10 actual decision periods after the practice session. In each decision period you will be asked to make 6 decisions (two in management, two in marketing, and two in operations). You will be informed about your business results at the end of each decision period. After you have completed playing the game you will be ready to write your BizCafe report. This report should indicate and explain how you played the game, what your decisions were and why you made the decisions the way you did, your results at the end
of each session and at the conclusion of the simulation. You should indicate what you learned from playing BizCafe and what you would do differently, and why, if you could play the game again. Your report should also have an interesting introduction that discusses what BizCafe is and what its purpose is, and an interesting conclusion. Your written report is typed, double-spaced, with a recommended length of 4-5 pages. DO NOT DELAY GETTING STARTED ON BIZCAFE. REMEMBER THAT PROCRASTINATION IS COSTLY FOR YOUR GRADE. FINAL EXAM (20%)The final exam will take place during the last scheduled regular class period and itwill cover course material that was covered in class. More information about the format of the exam will be provided to the class later in the course. CLASS PARTICIPATION AND BUSINESS PROFESSIONALISM (10%)You are expected to conduct yourself in a mature, responsible, professional, and businesslike manner in this class. This means that you should attend the class regularly, come to class on time, return from any class breaks on time, have your
