Why use a Lean Simulation Game?
The Lean Supply Chain & Logistics Simulation game was discussed in the podcast with Paul Myerson, author of author Lean Supply Chain and Logistics Management, a practical guide that will assist you in leveraging your improvements to both vendors and customers.
Why use a simulation game? As Paul says,
To be truly successful with Lean I think most people would agree that everybody has to be involved and understand that the concepts and the applications, so you always want to run as many people in your company through some kind of Lean training. The simulation is appropriate; I think, in the introductory types of setups where people might sit there and bored if they are listening to a lecture. This way, it gets them engaged. It’s a good team building approach to get them involved and see where it can really benefit them and the company and what their role in it is. So I find it to be very useful.
Paul’s Lean Supply Chain & Logistics Simulation says Enna, will help your company realize its goal of becoming more Lean, more agile, and take a lead over the competition. This is a hands-on simulation that demonstrates the effectiveness of Lean in the specialized context of the Supply Chain, Logistics, and Distribution environment.
