For middle and high school teachers: Business’n’Play can be brought to the students in a simplified format, that can be completed in presence and which lasts for a few hours. This version concentrates on the attitudes, values and experiences of Jenny and Gianni.
The protagonists of Business’n’Play represent important training tools thanks to their entrepreneurial spirit that is deeply rooted in their characters. There isn’t any theory, there aren’t any traditional format lessons, but the students are quickly thrown into the game after a brief description of the case study to be used. These case studies are based on real start-ups and entrepreneurs based in Italy. This means students can recognise themselves more easily in the values and characteristics of the protagonists than might be possible with large, multinational corporations.
The goal of this collaborative workshop is to demonstrate that there isn’t just one way to do things in life, and that no career path is ever a straight line from start to finish. This game shows them that those who succeed are often those who zig-zag from experience to experience seeking their true calling or who have a thousand interests and want to try a bit of everything! This is called ‘multipotentiality’. It is a unique mix of ability, values and talent that creates a basis for true personal and professional growth.
