Inspired-Talent team placed for finals The Fresh Connection
Inspired-Search | 23 June 2016
After last year’s success, in which team Inspired-Talent represented The Netherlands in The Global Final of The Fresh Connection, the team has once again placed for the Dutch national finals. Competing in last year’s Global Final was a confirmation that our Supply Chain talents can compete with more experienced colleagues and surprise with their results. This also reflects the mission of Inspired-Talent, to develop future Supply Chain leaders.
Maarten Peeters, who was team leader last year and now coaches the team, states: “I am very proud of the team. They have shown both strategic and operational Supply Chain knowledge, how to bring S&OP into practice and the ability to adapt to new challenges quickly. Personally the role of coach enables me to transfer knowledge and challenges me to think about group dynamics”.
The Fresh Connection Global Challenge is designed as a unique supply chain management (SCM) simulation game and competition. Company teams consist of four people and compete with each other to maximize profit and service levels to customers. The five best teams will participate in the national final, and the winner even in the world final. So finally, the best team of all becomes The Fresh Connection World Champion. And besides recognition and fame, this entitles them to a five day SCM Executive Course at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since 2008, The Fresh Connection has been experienced by more than 12,000 professionals in 600 companies across the world.
On the 29th of june, 2016 the best performing teams from The Netherlands, including the Inspired-Talent team, gather for the Dutch Final in Driebergen.
