Welcome to Comp-XM®, an integrated evaluation tool that will allow
you to demonstrate your business skills. Comp-XM has two sections:
1. A business simulation similar to the one you just completed and
2. A series of quizzes, called Board Queries, that ask questions
related to your simulation environment.
The Simulation
You are the CEO of a new company, the
Andrews Corporation. You will make four
sets of decisions. Your competition, Baldwin,
Chester and Digby, are run by computers.

all participants go up against a standard
set of competitors. As with your previous
simulation, the quality of your decisions
directly affects the position of your company.
Performance is evaluated using a Balanced
Scorecard, an analysis technique that gauges
results across four areas.

Board Queries
Board Queries are web-based quizzes that relate
directly to the results of your simulation. As CEO, you
will report to the Board of Directors. The Board

Differences From Your Previous Simulation

1 Introduction
You have just been recruited to head the Andrews Corporation’s
newest spin-off, the Andrews Comp-XM Corporation. The unit
concentrates Andrews’ biometric sensor efforts into a new, publicly
traded company.
1.1 What Is Comp-XM?
Comp-XM is familiar, yet different from your experience in Capstone
or Foundation. You are the CEO. You will be making decisions on
your own; you will not be a member of a team. Like Capstone or
Foundation, Comp-XM uses a spreadsheet and a web interface.
“6 Website Instructions” discusses the mechanics.
There are two parts to Comp-XM: A four-round simulation, and a
series of web-based quizzes called Board Queries. Board Queries are
questions posed by your Board of Directors. They are drawn from the
unique results of your simulation. You could appear before the Board
up to five times to answer their questions about your company.
Comp-XM Inquirer and Industry Conditions
All the information needed to answer the questions appears within
the pages of The Comp-XM Inquirer, an industry newsletter that is
similar to The Capstone Courier or The Foundation FastTrack.
“4 Industry Conditions Report” summarizes the current state of the
biometric market.
1.2 Workflow
Comp-XM has four decision rounds. Each round, you will enter a set
of decisions via the Comp-XM Spreadsheet.
In the standard Comp-XM setup, each round you will also answer the
Board Queries posed by the board of directors. At the end of the
simulation, you will answer a fifth set of Board Queries, but no
decisions will be required (Table 1.1). Decisions and Board Queries
require the Comp-XM Inquirer.

Your instructor can configure Comp-XM to have fewer

1.3 Differences From Your
Previous Simulation
Comp-XM has four market segments:
• Thrift
• Core
• Nano
• Elite
Comp-XM TQM (Total Quality Management)/Sustainability and
Human Resources Modules are active in Round 1.
The segment circles start the simulation in the middle of the
Perceptual Map before drifting to the lower right (Figure 1.1 –
Figure 1.3).
