MarkStrat is a simulation where students can excercise with KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), through multiple decision rounds. Unlike other types of decision, simulated in this game, R&D requires more time to seize the effects of the decision. It also requires to look into the structure of the product (its features), as related to projected desires of market segments, as configured by Market Research. Then, there is a technical part to handle, for the input of the decions in the simulation platform.
If you have trouble with the R&D dimension of MarkStrat simulation (MBA programmes), this presentation may help you. It summarizes the concepts mobilised by the simulation and provides some simple steps to do it.
