A unique business procurement training method developed at the University of Twente, in which purchasers practice and develop indispensable skills.
The game takes place in a brewery and players start out as Junior Buyer Packaging. Under professional supervision, the participants develop to the level of CPO within five rounds, with each round being carefully developed. New workouts, in-game applications and a feedback round enable participants to become final decision-makers with extensive powers. The combination of various purchasing strategies and real competition between the different participants results in a dynamic and realistic playing field in which leadership, teamwork and decision-making are indispensable.
The course is given in English.
