Grand Prix Tycoon

Two associates of PIXELearning, Rob James (a.k.a. ‘RobotJam’ – see www.robotjam.com) and Robbie Woodhead, worked together to create a fun take on business simulation with a F1 themed bit of frivolity.

Their Flash-based game, called ‘Grand Prix Tycoon’ is freely available on the following URL:

Is the business simulation model of worthy of MBA level business training? Probably not. Could you integrate it into a conventional corporate training programme…debatable.

Would it serve as an excellent intro to business concepts and enterprise training? Absolutely! Is it fun to play? You bet!

I won’t reveal their budget for this but rest assured you would be amazed – further evidence that the use of games and simulations for learning need not be a big expense.
