Spoilers are the absolute worst. This we know. Whether it’s the friend who accidentally blurts out the ending of a great book, the film review that diligently covers every twist and turn of the storyline, or the student who shares coursework information with subsequent cohorts, spoilers can annoy and infuriate. What they take from us can never be returned: our honest, unfiltered and unprepared response to a piece of creative work.

Let the game flow through you — or why business simulations are an outstanding educational tool

Time flies when you're having fun.
Business education and corporate training is aimed mostly at adult learners who already have knowledge and experience in the field they wish to improve. They are usually very eager to apply and test their learning in a real-life scenario. If you also consider that business simulations allow their participants to apply several business concepts concurrently, so that they get a holistic understanding of the business decision-making process, then it becomes obvious why business simulations are an ideal tool for adult business education.
