Mini-conference on Data-Analytics for Value Chains

Friday, October 22nd 2021

9:00-11:00 or 15:00-17:00, CEST (UTC +2)

Wherever you are...Online!

How can professionals analyze and visualize data in a meaningful way? How can you take the right decisions based on newly gained insights?


These are the key questions we aim to tackle during our mini-conference. Keynote speakers and gamified training solutions will inspire you with new ways and approaches to reach your objectives.

Recently, because of the rise of supply chain bottlenecks for raw materials across industries and the rise of future-proof economic approaches, the increasing complexity of our value chains and economic systems has come to the surface. These developments require companies and professionals to analyze their current activities and take the right decisions to be ready for the future.

Quantitative and qualitative insights need to be at the core of these changes and decisions. That’s why it isn’t without reason that it is now commonly accepted that “data is the new oil”.



The big BUT: Data is valueless without effective data analytics. Going forward, companies thus have to tick off the following checkboxes:

– Use CRISP: Cross Industry Standard Process for data analytics
– Work at different levels of data analytics:

  • Level 1: Descriptive: What?
  •  Level 2: Diagnostics: Why?
  • Level 3: Predictive: What-if?
  •  Level 4: Prescriptive: What do I need to do?

– Make sure you have the right agents and talent to conduct successful data analytics (data engineers, data translators, etc)


Join our FREE mini conference where we will zoom in on these topics. We will also demonstrate how we use our business simulation games as a dynamic case to educate professionals about data analytics. Particularly, we will provide participants with the knowledge, skills and a way to communicate and visualize data. This will be done in a content-driven and interactive exercise that will provide value to the participants.

The mini conference will take place on October 22nd. In order to accommodate for all time zones, we will host it twice. You can choose between two time-slots:

  • Morning session: 9:00 – 11:00 CEST
  • Afternoon session: 15:00 – 17:00 CEST
