Penalty Shootout™ is an ethics board game that provides basic ethics training with a compliance focus. It aims to train individuals in the ethics policy and basic ethics requirements of the client (e.g. knowledge of the whistle blowing hotline, consequences of policy contravention, etc). Based on the rules of soccer, success is determined by a combination of knowledge and luck. Employees can play either in a formal training environment or in a self-regulated environment (e.g. during tea-time or lunch breaks). The format is similar to a soccer league competition, where employees form teams of five players and enter a competition with attractive prizes. One cycle of the game involves 16 teams of five employees (i.e. 80 employees at a time), with four rounds of a knock-out competition leading to a final. When teams enter the competition, they are provided with the information that they need to study in order to play the game.
