Concept

A high-performing supply chain needs the collaboration of team members from across the organization. Tearing down silos and creating the right cross-functional mindset, however, can be a serious challenge.

The Cool Connection is a cross-functional business simulation which motivates your team to deliver optimal performance by using supply chain management best practices from real-world situations. See for yourself how The Cool Connection will effect positive and powerful change in your enterprise.

Why is The Cool Connection different?

For a subject as vital as (Financial) Supply Chain Management, it is not enough to tell people what needs to be done. They must experience it. The Cool Connection is a different way of learning that puts participants at the heart of a lifelike simulation so they can experience the impact of every decision they make, not just in their own ‘silo’ but across the business.

By team experience, participants measure their own performance against others and receive constant feedback from the professional trainers leading the simulation. Between rounds, participants reflect on what just happened, are introduced to new concepts and then go back to put what they have learned into practice in the next round. It is this Magic Circle that makes The Cool Connection so powerful.
