For years office procedures classes were limited to a number of “in-basket” simulations and numerous texts that talked about the world of business. In this office procedures simulation, students take part in a workflow simulation. Each department depends on the work that other departments must complete to efficiently run the company. Students progress from competing for available positions through an interview and employment-testing procedure to a hands-on simulation in which they may be part of the support personnel during one rotation and a manager or department head in another. Departments involve the students with specialized work tasks such as accounting, shipping, graphics, and sales. Students take on a sense of responsibility because they know that if they don’t do their job, they are hampering the work of others. Note: This course is designed for the student who has both keyboarding and formatting skills.
