Think you can run Enron? Play the game
It might not have fully averted the WorldCom or Enron disasters, but Clark Aldrich figures his new software could have at least taught employees at those companies a few things about ethics and decision making.
The game is based on a "Three-to-One" theory, in which successful leadership depends on effectively managing power and workplace tensions while encouraging a proliferation of ideas. Aldrich says it's a system that could have benefited some of the latest poster children for corporate malfeasance.
This is a software package you need to purchase ... not cheap.

An online, ongoing, multiplayer, business game and simulator for aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs, executives, MBA's, economists, accountants, bankers and the business-savvy
The game is played online via a standard web browser. There is nothing to download or install. It is the first business simulation designed to be ongoing, akin to the real economy -- anyone can join in and leave at any time. It is also the first to be based on realistic business practices and economics. Business information that is commercial in confidence in the real world is not generally available in the game, so companies operate and compete realistically.

CELEBDAQ : a celebrity share-trading game
http://www.bbc.co.uk/celebdaq/
CELEBDAQ is a celebrity share-trading game: sign up and we'll give you a cool ten thousand pounds (that's Celebdaq pounds, not real cash!)
You use this money - and your skill and judgement - to buy and sell 'shares' in listed celebrities. Every Friday, the shares you own will pay out a dividend, depending on how much press coverage those celebrities received. The more press coverage a celeb gets, the better. To get the full pay-out you have to own the celeb for 7 days (from Friday to Friday.)
Just like in the real world, share prices rise and fall as demand for them changes - so as well as receiving dividends, you can make money by day-trading and buying low (when the celeb isn't getting much press coverage) and selling high (as they get more coverage or the demand for them increases)...
