The Fresh Connection

The Fresh Connection is a team-based business simulation that provides an exceptional means for learning how to lead a business by practicing collaboration and consensus building:

  • Teams of four work together to save a failing company.
  • Each team member will select one of four functional roles: purchasing, operations, sales, or supply chain.
  • Participants make strategic executive level decisions in a high-pressure real-life environment.
  • Every decision has trade-offs, both within and across the four roles.
  • Participants learn about best practices and emerging trends through hands on experience.
  • Collaboration and consensus building skills are developed as teams compete across multiple rounds.

The successful team will craft the best strategy and align all four functional disciplines. Winning is about generating the best ROI for the business while meeting your own Key Performance Indicators.
