We are pleased to invite you to take an active part in the executive workshop “The Fresh Connection” on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 9:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. at the Baur au Lac in Zurich.
Your profound expertise is of high value amongst other Heads of Supply Chain and Senior Management attending the session.

Improving Operational Efficiency by increasing the visibility in Supply Chain is a key topic in your industry. How your organization can benefit from it and how a value chain can be optimized will be simulated in our workshop “The Fresh Connection”, December 05 in Zurich. The Fresh Connection engages participants in making strategic and tactical decisions to save the fictional company from financial ruin. Hundreds of companies in over 25 countries have experienced The Fresh Connection: DuPont, Philip Morris, Kimberly-Clark, Philips, McDonalds and MIT to mention just a few of them.

Working in teams of four, participants represent the functional roles of Operations, Purchasing, Sales and Supply Chain as they are challenged to consider corporate strategy and business objectives, to effectively put strategy into action. With this highly interactive web-based business simulation tool you will get a feeling on how to optimize S&OP. After having participated you will think more of long term decisions which can influence business performance.

More information on the mechanism and format of “The Fresh Connection” to find in the flyer enclosed. The attendance is for free, however, due to limited capacity, registration is by application only. Feel free to forward the invitation to your Senior Management.
