On Monday, May 18, at noon (CEST), all participants can log back in and take a look at how their ROI, KPIs and individual results have developed. Perhaps more importantly, the Ranking screens are updated with the ROI scores of round 2, and the weighted ROI scores after round 2. Some words about what happened in the Top 5 can be read below.

In round 2, overall company teams became significantly better, the average ROI increased to close to 1% positive, whereas in round 1 the average ROI was below minus 6%. About three quarters of the company teams scored better in round 2, than they did in round 1, even though the complexity in round 2 was aa lot higher. You are all on a steep learning curve!

The round 2 ranking of the Top 5 is only partially the same as for round 1: again Hitachi - R&D Japan, scores best with 14.6%. In second place we have a newcomer in the top 5, a team from Poland, Beiersdorf - BMP team with an ROI of 14.4%. And in third place is Essilor - Team 1 from France, scoring an ROI of 14.0%. Entering the top 5 of round scores in 4th place is a team from India called Abbott - Abbott, that has an ROI of 12.2%. And then in fifth place we find a third newcomer, a French team, LVMH - Team 2, with an ROI of 10.9%.

How do these results affect the Top 5 after 2 rounds? Well, two of the new entries in the top 5 scores of round 2, are now ranked here as well. Still leading, with a weighted ROI score of 14.0%, is Hitachi - R&D Japan from Japan. In second place overall is the French team Essilor - Team 1 with 13.0%. Beiersdorf - BMP team, from Poland enters the Top 5 on the third place with 11.1%. Fourth is another Polish team, having 10.9%, Avon - Avon Naturalnie. Finally, fifth is our second newcomer in the Top 5, Abbott - Abbott from India, who has a score of 9.7%.

Round 3

Let's prepare for round 3, your final chance to improve the business results of The Fresh Connection. Analyse the outcomes of round 2, for some teams things may have gone different than expected or hoped, whether good or bad. No matter the outcomes, please consider it as an opportunity to learn and to recover. And remember, this 3rd round weighs the heaviest in the final ranking of this second stage, so a lot can still happen. Try to be ambitious, but do not become reckless!
