The Fresh Connection Experiential Learning Platform

What is The Fresh Connection?


The Fresh Connection is a strategic and tactical supply chain simulation. Results are measured in terms of their long-term effects on the ROI, with sufficient room to recover in successive rounds from poor historic decisions. The Fresh Connection challenges participants to work together as a team to demonstrate and improve their knowledge of Supply Chain fundamentals. Participants work within their team to make the best strategic and tactical choices to save their company from financial ruin. Participants experience the impact of value chain management on business performance in a competitive environment.


What is The Global Supply Chain Challenge?


This is a unique opportunity for your supply chain teams to practice their decision making and test their skills and performance against the best corporate teams from across the globe. New business scenarios are introduced every year into The Global SC Challenge. No competition is like one already experienced, and teams have to work hard to solve the supply chain scenarios presented. ParadoxSolve as Premier Partner for The Global SC Global Challenge USA invites you to register your Supply Chain Expert Teams to participate in the USA Pool  of the challange and become the regional champions to represent the USA at the Grand Final and win an Executive Course for four from M.I.T.
