In 2023, the Burger King chain announced that they were closing around 400 of their stores in the USA. They are reducing underperforming restaurants – but are these closures a good idea from a marketing brand perspective? Let’s find out in this activity.
This is a points-based game built around 10 ethical and social dilemmas (trade-offs). In each round, students need to make a strategic decision that will add/remove points for profits, customer satisfaction, staff satisfaction, and ethical behavior. But what is more important to your students – profit maximization or running a well-balanced business? Designed as a game to make ethical decisions fun, enjoyable, and more real-world based.
This activity is a variation of the Marketing Ethics Game (also available of Great Ideas). But instead of a game, students review, discuss, and debate the 10 ethical and social dilemmas. In this situations, students will need to trade-off profits for ethical behavior, the customer experience, and staff satisfaction. Great for in-class discussions and debates.
An easy-to-play Excel-based game designed around customer value, needs analysis, target markets, competition, and profit management. Great game to teach the fundamentals of marketing. Instructional videos included.
