Best business simulation game I ever played. Great way to learn how decisions affect the entire supply chain. More often, optimized decisions in silos bring troubles for the entire SC. Great way to form teams among different areas in a company. Easy to play despite participants in different countries or facilities. Teaches the importance of making decisions with numbers in order to optimize processes and that gut feeling and experience is important but not sufficient.Gustavo Adolfo Escudero Cavides MIT USA

The Fresh Connection has enabled us to better appreciate the challenges that our customers face…
It has given us insights into the different business interests that Purchasers, Operations Managers and Sales Managers have.
Supply Chain Management is known to present a high level of complexity: this discipline brings together many issues. The Fresh Connection does not only include many different types of decisions (purchasing, production, logistics, planning, quality of customer service,...), but there are also complex interactions between them, interactions which strongly influence the final performance.Christian van Delft Associate Professor Information Systems and Operations Management, Head Logistics and Operations Management Department, Member of CNRS, GREGHEC Research Group, HEC Paris, France
Every salesperson wants to be the best at selling, but if he does so to the detriment of the rest of the company there’s no longterm future. This becomes crystal clear by playing The Fresh Connection.Niels Meijer International Sales Manager NW-Europe at Lamb Weston
