Global PRO Challenge and Global PRO Final

Every year, hundreds of corporate teams from around the globe, learn about supply chain management with the world's leading business game in supply chain, The Fresh Connection. Learning with The Fresh Connection is experiential learning, or as this concept is often described learning by doing. Given our extensive track record, this can be considered a proven concept!

Participating teams do not only learn, but they are also ranked based on their performance. To see who the best teams are, and to see how performance develops, as learning progresses. Teams are part of a challenge, the Global PRO Challenge.

Learning matters most for professional development, whereas performance serves as a benchmark. The ultimate benchmark being how well the best corporate teams compare when they are up against each other. Enter the Global PRO Final, that gathers the best 100 teams, from close to 100 companies, as well as tens of countries, and all major continents.

The Global PRO Final is a spectacular multi-day online event, that includes:

  • multiple rounds in another challenging learning journey
  • the opportunity to benchmark with professionals from around the world

Learning with an advanced business game

To make the experience as realistic as possible, participants split up into teams of four. The teams then become the management team of The Fresh Connection, a fictional manufacturing company that is in dire need of a turnaround. Each team member represents one of four functional roles: supply chain, operations, sales, and purchasing. The teams' biggest challenge is to align and collaborate to make the best strategic and tactical decisions for the Value Chain of The Fresh Connection and to save it from the abyss.

The objective is to build experience, learn from mistakes, reflect, contextualize, rinse and repeat. Participants will realize that cross-functional alignment is key! At the same time, they will improve their end-to-end value chain understanding and can see the financial impact of their team's decision-making.

Global PRO Final 2023

Every year, Inchainge’s training partners take numerous professional teams from hundreds of companies, tens of countries, and multiple industries through immersive, game-based learning experiences. We adhere to the principle that learning occurs when someone wants to learn, not when someone wants to teach. This approach is also known as experiential learning or “learning by doing,” and given our track record, it is certainly a proven concept.

We are pleased to have the best corporate teams as finalists! This collaboration has allowed many companies and universities to benefit from our trainings and their expertise.
