Duration of The simple linear regression model indicated the that the duration can be predicted from the simulation number of decisions (assumed as proxy for rounds complexity) with significant beta weight ([beta] = 0.829, p-value < 0.01), leading to the proposition that the duration of simulation, together with complexity, influences the learning of business games participants (Hall & Cox, 1994).
