Games; BID, The Board Game for Professional Services Providers, Architect's Version
BID is a game of business calisthenics for professional services consultants. BID challenges players to run consulting firms, manage cash flow, bid on projects, hire and train staff, pay taxes and salaries, invoice clients, and acquire smaller companies, all on a five-year cycle. This is the version we created for architects.
BID is designed as a training and team-building tool for young and emerging leaders for consulting firms. Nothing livens up training like a rousing game experience, which is what we have done with BID. If you want to give your team an exciting and memorable first exposure to services firm management, play a round of BID.
The Workplace Culture Store recommends the Extra training package to go along with BID. This is a complex game and to realize its full potential, facilitators in particular will need training and orientation in the rules of play.
