We have revealed our newest business simulation game, the Triple Connection, end of March. We are now excited to show you everything you need to know to integrate this powerful sustainability business game into your course or training. You can be one of the first to become certified by joining this in-depth training.
Through this online program, we not only aim to familiarize you with The Triple Connection but also make you a part of our journey towards a more sustainable future.
The Triple Connection is a web-based business simulation game that engages its participants in implementing a sustainable strategy for a virtual chocolate milk manufacturer. To add the flair of a real-world experience, The Triple Connection comes with the added element of a limited budget. This pushes participants to be more acute with their analysis. Alignment and strong cross-functional communications are key to setting the right priorities in place!
The Triple Connection finds its roots in the cacao industry and follows the path to create maximum value in its sustainable value chain. This kind of value creation requires multiple high-level roles to align on the concept of the 3Ps: People, Planet, Prosperity!
The Triple Connection takes into consideration 13 out of 17 Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations. Meaning that participants also have to take into account the life-like consequences of every decision that they make.
