Wharf T&T Wins Championship in Hong Kong Management Game 2013
3 Wharf T&T teams entered top 5 finalists

Hong Kong - Aug 14, 2013 - The Wharf T&T team, code-named “We Can”, emerged as the Champion of the Hong Kong Management Game 2013 in August by outperforming 4 other finalist teams.

The Management Game is a simulation exercise which makes use of the computer program SIMBUSI to simulate a competitive business environment. In the Hong Kong Final, each of the five teams was assigned to manage a company selling mineral water. Their business objective was to outperform all other competitors and obtain the highest profit. Apart from the typical business decisions like pricing, marketing and production, the teams have to make strategic decisions like reacting to market calls on product safety, handling dissatisfaction of contract staff.

“We Can” team led by Ms Carol Pau reaped a total profit of $4.2 million and won the Hong Kong championship this year. Another 2 teams also from Wharf T&T won the 2nd runner up and 3rd runner up led by Ms Fanny Lee and Ms Chingmy Man respectively.

Ms Florence Cheung, Vice President, Human Resources of Wharf T&T, said, “Participating in this Management Game is part of our “Leadership Development Programme” (LDP) curriculum and we are glad that 3 Wharf T&T teams have managed to go all the way to the final round. Our champion team not only won the prizes, they also secured an opportunity to represent Hong Kong to compete in the regional competition."

“The Company would like to congratulate them on their excellent results and appreciate their determination to overcome difficulties and obstacles they had encountered throughout the competition. They demonstrated focus, determination and strong teamwork. We are proud of all our LDP teams!” Florence added.
