Abstract

Significant economic savings and productivity gains in worker performance are estimated even with a small improvement in indoor environmental quality (Fisk, 2000). Realworld productivity is based on environmental conditions that are volatile, complex, and ambiguous with uncertainty and delayed feedback. Therefore, the measurement tool needs to capture functioning as it happens in the realworld. The Strategic Management Simulations (SMS) methodology has been designed to measure the process of thinking and has been widely used in many industries to assess cognitive and behavioral responses to realworld task situations (Satish and Streufert, 1997).
