Year 11 Get Business Savvy

01 September 2015

Year 11 students in Business Studies last week experienced a novel way to learn how specific business departments work together to create a functioning organisation. 

  • business
  • Business Studies
  • Year 11 Business Studies

Students were assigned a role in a mock company and were instructed to form a human chain/web representing various departments and their interconnectivity.

The departments represented were:

1. Customer Service

2. Administration

3. Marketing and Sales

4. Human Resources

5. ICT

6. Research and Development

7. Finance

8. Operations/Production

The ice breaker activity highlighted how different parts of an organisation can come together to work effectively to achieve continued success for a business. 

Some quotes from the students regarding the activity:

"Definitely a great start to the year"

 "Everybody wants a piece of me!!"—Finance
