APPROACH.

By participating in 'rounds' that each constitute 6 months in the real world, participants are encouraged to be proactive and think more about long term decisions which can influence business performance, rather than focus on short term reactive measures that have a limited impact upon company profitability.

Participants experience the functioning of the physical supply chain while having to deal with the financial constraints. Cross functional understanding and collaboration is directly experienced as the team has to work together to turn the company around.

Participants will learn to align corporate strategy with an effective supply chain performance in an environment of uncertainty and volatility causing cashflow and funding constraints.
