KPMG Peat Marwick has scooped the first prize in the Hongkong Management Game.

The three-member team triumphed over four rivals to snare the cash prize of $25,000 and trophy.

The game is an annual event aimed at testing the management skills of participants and is organised by the Hong Kong Management Association and sponsored by the South China Morning Post.

The newspaper's editor-in-chief, Jonathan Fenby, presented the award to the KPMG team, comprising Rupert Chamberlain, William Crowe and Robert Harding.

Going by the name of Sundry Scots, the team of KPMG managers beat out competitors from CLP, IBM China/ Hong Kong, the Mass Transit Railway Corp and the MBA Association of the Open University.

The competition tests management skills through a simulated business environment. Management decisions were evaluated via computer.

Sundry Scots go on to compete in the regional final against teams from Australia, India, Macau, Malaysia and Singapore. The regional final will be held in September.
