Easy-to-Use Self-study Reading & Discussions


Biz Wiz ManualsBIZ WIZ® self-study reading materials are highly flexible learning tools. Employees complete the reading at their own pace at home or work. There are six chapters averaging 24 pages/chapter. Each one covers a topic of essential business and financial information in an interesting and easy-to-follow fashion. The chapters are:

  1. Introduction to Business
  2. Financing the Business
  3. Serving Our Customers
  4. Operating the Business
  5. Measuring the Business
  6. Managing Our Resources

Questions at the end of each chapter focus learning and provide a basis for classroom discussions. You can customize the program through special questions that allow you to add information about your organization. A thorough leader's guide makes facilitating classroom discussions easy.




Business Simulation Stimulates Learning


Biz Wiz GameThe BIZ WIZ® Simulation delivers a high-impact learning experience. A reusable board and card decks (not expensive computers) allow pairs of participants to run their own companies in competition with each other. Companies keep their own profit and loss statements and balance sheets with materials in a consumable company kit. They make decisions on how to raise and invest capital to improve financial performance. The Simulation makes learning both fun and lasting.


You can use the Simulation with all the versions of BIZ WIZ® or as an independent tool for knowledgeable participants. Four years of simulation play cover the full economic cycle of growth and decline (fewer than four years can be played). Each year requires about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to complete. The first year is divided into rounds that match the self-study reading. An excellent leader's guide provides full support for administering the BIZ WIZ® Simulation and guiding learning reflections.




Classroom Exercises Add Insight


Biz Wiz GameFor firms seeking to further enrich the BIZ WIZ® learning experience, an array of optional classroom exercises complements the core learning material. Learning teams of four to six participants complete most exercises in 15 - 60 minutes. Exercises help participants:

  • Analyze Company Financial Statements
  • Connect the Income Statement and Balance Sheet
  • Examine the Competitive Environment
  • Link Personal Efforts to Company Results

Select the blend of exercises you need, add your own firm's financial information, and get participants immersed in your business. Leader's notes are available for each exercise. You may also select reusable wall charts to assist with your sessions.




Customization, Pilots, & Trainer Development


Optional customization assistance and trainer development are available to create the perfect program. Customization service can include incorporating company-specific information into self-study materials and adjusting exercises. Train-the-trainer workshops cover both training techniques and financial concepts. Trainer practice and pilot sessions can also be provided to assist your implementation.
