How can we continue to run our businesses with the same conventional supply chain management practices that we’ve been using for 50 years! These practices are no longer a fit for the new volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world we find ourselves in. We need to explore new and innovative ways of doing business … it’s adapt or die!

We often want to do things differently, to change the way we do business but there’s two obstacles we face.  Fear of the unknown and the risk of making a change that may or may not work out.

What if you could experience DDMRP in an environment that was risk free and allowed you to explore and understand the conceptual differences between conventional supply chain approaches and the emerging flow-based approaches?

What if you could hear about the experiences of others, and participate with people from a country that leads the world in DDMRP adoption?

This one-day unique DDMRP workshop will allow you and your team to experience DDMRP within a simulated platform powered by The Fresh Connection (TFC).  The Fresh Connection is an experiential learning approach is used globally by top 500 companies to educate their supply chain professionals in effective and practical supply chain practices. TFC requires participants to collaborate, communicate; it also demonstrates the consequences of your actions & decisions that you’ve taken within the simulation.

To add a lot of flair and a little spark, you will also be able to experience DDMRP through an international collaborative competition against teams from FAPICS in France. In this workshop with International TFC presenters, Tracy Cheetham and Caroline Mondon, you will delve into broad concept of the DDMRP methodology and explore real world successes.  Given that France pipped South Africa to the post by being awarded the 2023 rugby world cup it might just be a chance for some payback…
