Alternative scenario versions

Organizers of the Global Management Challenge championship annually release 1-2 (more often 1 than 2) new scenarios. Each scenario contains unique settings for markets, business news, etc. In any country, teams will play absolutely in the same conditions if the same scenario is played in the round (fair play).

However, for individual rounds, an existing scenario may be slightly modified. As a rule, these are particularly significant rounds, for example, the international final or final rounf national championship (usually China or Russia).

How does this happen? At the beginning of the round, each team receives a set of history reports and prepares a decision for 1 period. For a specific scenario, teams already have a decision based on the experience (as a rule it should be done). After processing decisions, each team receives a management report and ... surprise! Situation on the market has changed dramatically and instead of growing sales of products, demand for them, on the contrary, fell. Teams were left with unsold stock warehouse and a lack of understanding of what was going on.

So that is how organizers are launching an alternative version of the existing scenario. It can be recognized by changed parameters of the management report, most often it is the price of raw materials - it will differ from the price in already known scenario version.

For example, currently 3 versions of the 17C1 scenario are known. In the normal version of scenario 17C1, price of raw materials by periods takes the following values (SPOT, 3 months, 6 months):

  1. 79,567, 75,192, 71,611
  2. 79 336, 75 369, 71 403
  3. 79 345, 75 378, 71 410
  4. 78 498, 75 378, 71 410
  5. 78 498, 75 387, 71 419

 

In the alternative version of scenario 17C1(2), price of raw materials by periods differs:

  1. 78 801, 75 648, 70 921
  2. 79 164, 75 205, 71 247
  3. 79 164, 75 205, 71 247
  4. 79 129, 75 172, 71 217
  5. 77 980, 74 862, 70 182

 

This is a hint for players that market in current round will be different and you need to be prepared for all sorts of surprises. This version of scenario was used in semi-final of championship of Russia in the season 2017: 17C1(2) -EN 2017-5. In fact, it was one of the last rounds before international final, where organizers tested this version of 17C1(2).

Before international final in season of 2017, an alternative version of 17C1(2) scenario was further developed and version 17C1(3) turned out, where price of raw materials takes the following values:

  1. 78 801, 75 648, 70 921
  2. 80 746, 75 957, 71 958
  3. 80 745, 76 708, 72 670
  4. 79 129, 75 172, 71 217
  5. 79 129, 74 862, 70 182

 

As can be seen from the price of raw materials, 1 period remained unchanged, but then organizers twisted something up. It is noteworthy that team from Russia just played scenario 17C1(2) in semi-final and should have been ready for such turn of events at the international final, but could not properly apply their knowledge and remained outside the TOP-3.

Pay attention to tips in management report.
