CSCMP Roundtable Germany proudly presents a challenging, fun, and rewarding supply chain competition designed to bridge the generational gaps with an interactive educational simulation game called The Fresh Connection.

Working in teams of four, representing young professionals, middle management, and senior executives, CSCMP’s Roundtable Germany is a unique diversity initiative allowing millennials and seasoned professionals from our international community to discuss new ideas and develop a winning supply chain strategy for the same fictional company.

The winner of the CSCMP Roundtable Germany Challenge has the chance to represent the Roundtable Germany in the Global Challenge.


The Roundtable Challenge is the essence of CSCMP’s mission: to Connect, Educate, and Develop supply chain professionals. This competition has something for everyone:

  • Young professionals – An excellent opportunity for training and development by creating mentorship relationships with seasoned professionals.
  • Middle managers –Expand your networks and gain wisdom from senior executives and insights from young professionals.
  • Senior leaders – Give back, and pass your vast experience and knowledge on to the next generations of supply chain managers.

Participants will be able to reach out beyond the insular worlds of their own jobs to gain a broader perspective on the supply chain universe.
