Welcome to the Emerald Forest Hotel!

This is the homepage of your simulation in Rotterdam, called 29NL, March 2020. English is meant as a way of communication so the texts might not always be totally correct. All of the content is in English as this is an international hotel.

What is the game?

You all take over the Emerald Forest Hotel as a management team. You have to run the hotel, trying to do better than has been done in the past. Last year's decisions and results, the history, are available as a point of reference. You all ave the same hotels, with the same data as starting point. The hotels are located in your own country, so the Netherlands, in a number of (fictitious) cities. Each city consists of approx. ten hotels. Your direct, or main competitors are the other hotels in your city.
Christina Bergman and her CEO Jill Jandal give you the task to take over the Emerald Forest Hotel. So, from a distance, they will follow the developments as well.

What are the goals?

The task you have when taking over the hotel, is to do better then before. The existing and realistic dates of Emerald Forest Hotel offer the possibility to apply management skills and knowledge. Learning goals are:

  • Working in a large amount of data and finding the right data as a team
  • Working on the competence creativity and communication by doing assignments
  • Running your own management team in a pleasant and businesslike way
  • Behaving like entrepreneurs: handling uncertainty, finding solutions, excepting failures
  • Acting like entrepreneur in real-life situations

You will do by managing the hotel in the following ways:

  • Making assignments during a number of years
  • Explaining why and how you do things
  • Live-actions in the game
  • Handling situation, make choices and be creative
  • Taking into account the competitions, real live and other things happening during the competition

Your marks

All of this is evaluated each playing year by the coaches, in assessing your creativity and entrepreneurship. These two elements are basic in bringing your hotel occupancy rate, which means revenues and hopefully profit.
You will also get some (limited) feedback from your coach on each year.

Each round you will have two major assignments, which will be evaluated by your coaches on

  • the element of entrepreneurship
  • as well as creativity

These sixteen assignments will be evaluated: the average will result in your final mark for the game. This mark which will only be published after the total of the module. During the game, your coach will comment on your work; and the quality of your work will heavily influence your hotel's result and ranking. Marks are individual, but very likely in many cases will be the same for all team members.
