Answer o question 1
BSG (business simulation game) is a strategic tool that attracts consumers working together on a technology based platform for economic processing (Sloan et al., 2013). The team had adopted one of the most efficient cohesive business strategies that are recruiting with care, training program etc.

Answer o question 2
In order to achieve establishment in the competitive business marketing field five primry key goals such as EPS, ROE, Credit, image rating, the stock price are considered (Whiteley, Leduc & Dawson, 2014).
