What will you learn with The Cool Connection?

The Cool Connection is a versatile learning experience that can be adapted to meet the learning objectives of banks at many points on the value chain and beyond, without losing its pinpoint focus on (financial) supply chain management and working capital.

Depending on the specific group being trained, we can vary everything from the complexity of the simulation itself to the number of rounds used. Specific decisions in the simulation can be switched on off so that every experience of The Cool Connection is uniquely tailored to its participants, whatever your objectives.
