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, Comp-XM uses a spreadsheet and a web interface.
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. “Website Instructions” (below) discusses the mechanics.
Login to the website with the User ID and Password from your previous simulation. Select Comp-XM.
In the Getting Started area, view the brief introductory video in the Welcome section. Be sure to review the Sample Board Query in the About Board Queries section. Go through the remaining sections.
The Comp-XM Spreadsheet
In the Getting Set Up section, download the Comp-XM Spreadsheet to your computer (a web version of the spreadsheet is available from the Dashboard, see below).
- You will open the Comp-XM Spreadsheet as you did the Capstone or Foundation Spreadsheet;
- Enter the same User ID and Password you used to login to the website;
- The Comp-XM Spreadsheet requires an Internet connection–it retrieves your work from the website when it opens and sends your work to the website when you save decisions.
