Challenge schedule

The Fresh Connection Global Challenge pits teams from your region and from across the globe against each other. It is an ideal opportunity to learn by experience and match your teams’ supply chain management skills against the best in the world.

How to join The Fresh Connection Global Challenge

As of September 2019, teams have the opportunity to attend public training workshops or online training sessions organized for their country. Each workshop includes a number of rounds of The Fresh Connection. These training sessions are a meaningful learning experience in their own right. Participants can join in Company teams (members from the same company), as well as in Individuals teams (members from different companies). Please contact your local TFC Partner for available options in your area.

At the end of April 2020, teams can proceed to the Global Challenge. They will be divided into Country pools, and for a 6-week period, they will experience 3 additional rounds of the simulation as they compete against the best value chain management teams from their country and from the world. Typically, 2-3 hours per round will be required.

The strongest teams of their country or region will continue to the Global Final, to be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on November 19 and 20, 2020. Travel and hotel expenses will be taken care of. The best team will claim the title of The Fresh Connection World Champion.

AND the best team of the Global Final will win a free four-day Executive Education SCM course at MIT in Cambridge, MA, USA, worth $ 4,995 per participant.
