Many employability skills that employers are seeking can only be learned in “real life” employment situations. Experiential Learning provides an unique way in developing these skills through “learning by doing”. This will give you an outstanding chance on the labor market.
Engaged learning is the process in which participants actively participate in their learning. From the beginning you’ll collaborate with peers and face challenges in a virtual business. Learn at your own pace with our pre-recorded sessions and practicing with our businessgames, to successfully deal with these challenges.
With the ability to apply theory to practice you’ll receive constant & immediate feedback. This method enables the chance to work on your hard and soft skills at the same time. Real-world experience opens the path to gaining resume experience without applying for a job! Learn, experience and practice is the solution for your CV.
Experiential Learning facilitates the development of hard & soft skills. It helps bridging the gap between acquisition of theoretical knowledge and generation of skills through active participation in learning. Especially when it is applied in a team based learning setting. The Blue Connection in particular is an innovative web-based business simulation game. You’ll engage in the transformation from a linear to a circular value chain by implementing a circular strategy for a virtual e-bike manufacturer. In teams of 4, participants will represent the functional roles of VP Finance, VP Purchasing, VP Supply Chain, and VP Sales.

With the business games of Inchainge, you can professionally develop both the soft and the hard skills. I’ve noticed that when people read essential information, very little actually sticks to the brain. Experiential learning is a powerful method solve this problem. You’ll be able to experiment with the business game, naturally make economic mistakes, and instantly reflect with other motivated people in your collaborative team.
With the business game you’ll also discover what you will need for the business in a sustainable industry and what this means for the key stakeholders around you. This is a brilliant way to kickstart the scaling of circular economy within companies.
The business game enables driven people to transpose themselves in the game and rapidly understand what impact circularity has. Both in the daily life and for modern businesses in a circular industry. This unique way of working is remarkably attractive and joyful. People are very eager to learn and develop their hard and soft skills. The Blue Connection specifically is really showcasing how different circular business models can work. It gives insight in refurbishing, reparability and also product as a service. In my opinion, I think that the product as a service is a significantly big enabler of the circular economy. This is a big game changer in worldwide industries. The Blue Connection helps many young professionals to grasp what circularity really means and how this can be implemented in a real case.
This vital book by Rozanne Henzen and Ed Weenk will broaden your perspective on the circular economy, deepen your knowledge and raise your aspirations to do more and better. The chapters weave together important concepts and best practice examples, while offering helpful tools to turn ideas into reality. This book gives vital clues to how we can and must avoid overshoot and collapse in nature, society and the economy. I highly recommend it.
