JPS is the distributor in Italy of The Fresh Connection: The Ultimate Value Chain Experience, a highly innovative business experience that develops advanced skills in supply chain.

The Fresh Connection participants study the alignment of business strategy and supply chain strategies, experiencing firsthand how the Sales & Operations Planning is a powerful tool in establishing virtuous collaboration processes between the different company functions.

Thanks to The Fresh Connection, participants can try their hand at the challenge of a company in crisis with results and a Supply Chain that needs to be rethought:

  • A task to be carried out in a team and not following individual logic; each participant must consult with the other members of the team before making decisions
  • A way to work on micro-management only after having addressed themes of macro-management
  • A moment of active collaboration with colleagues; exchanging ideas and concrete solutions is one of the fundamental requirements of the simulation development

… As in any company, the goal to be reached is the bottom line! Indeed, to win requires achievement of the best ROI for the business without losing sight of own team performance.

Today, The Fresh Connection is a tool used globally. Since 2010, APICS has recognized its value – in terms of quality, body of knowledge and didactic effectiveness – including it among products for the accumulation of points in order to maintain certifications.

Add to this prestigious corporate clients. Indeed, numerous multinational groups have chosen The Fresh Connection to train their best talents, both in conjunction with the APICS courses and through internal competitive sessions.

The Fresh Connection also organizes international competitions open to individual professionals, companies and public institutions in the training sector. For example, in 2014, the University of Florence’s Faculty of Engineering established two teams, which successfully participated in the Dutch competition.
