Celemi Apples Oranges®: Creating Business Value

Celemi Apples & Oranges® helps everyone in the organization see the 'big picture' - as well as the positive effects their actions have on the business! It helps business leaders create a common vision throughout the organization and build a shared understanding of financial and management goals.

Celemi Apples Oranges® achieves this by helping employees:

The Experience

Celemi Apples & Oranges™ is a one-day, interactive 'board game' style business simulation that not only teaches participants the basics of finance, but also enables them to truly internalize big-picture fundamentals such as cash flow, inventory and sales. Most importantly, they learn how various decisions and actions - including their own jobs - impact profitability.

Designed with non-financial employees in mind, participants work through a variety of exercises (business events) on a workmat™. To start, the 'company' is losing market share in the face of increasing demands from suppliers and customers.

"Celemi Apples & Oranges® surpassed our expectations by a wide margin. It not only gives us a foundation to build on - it also creates enthusiasm and gets people involved. These are essential components for us as we launch our development program."

Personnel Manager, Volvo Bus Corporation

"You know the program is effective when people from manufacturing, sales and marketing become sensitive to each other's needs and understand how the operation works. …But the exciting part is that they actually begin to apply their new knowledge on the job, which in turn helps them remember it. Months later retention is still high."

Manager, Sales & Marketing Learning Programs, 3M

"Celemi's learning process communicates the basics of business management as well as important background information unique to DaimlerChrysler. It also makes the financial numbers real and helps everyone to understand how they can be used on a regular basis for planning and management."

Project Manager, DaimlerChrysler
Participants are challenged to build productivity and profitability to meet tough demands from all stakeholders. They must work together to accomplish a number of business objectives. Exercises include devising a financial strategy, monitoring cash flow, reducing time cycles, improving resource utilization and measuring their results in the balance sheet and income statement.
