McHENRY – The McHenry County College Workforce Training Program is introducing an interactive business simulation, the Fresh Connection, at an executive briefing from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Shah Center, 4100 W. Shamrock Lane, McHenry.

Charles Nemer, principle of Adaptive Manufacturing Solutions in Somerset, Wis., will facilitate the briefing.

The Fresh Connection is an advanced, web-based business simulation that challenges participants to work together as a team to demonstrate and improve their value chain practices. In addition, the Fresh Connection can be used to teach collaborative work and effective communication, assist to break down silos, and support implementation of effective supply chain management, manufacturing practices, sales and operations planning, lean initiatives, and enterprise resource planning implementations.

Company principles and senior team members who manage supply chain, plant operations, sales and human resource functions are expected to attend the briefing.

The Fresh Connection executive briefing will be followed up by Fresh Connection team rounds from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. on May 9 and 16. These team rounds will provide participants with the hands-on experience of the power of this tool in a competitive setting. 

The fee for Wednesday’s briefing is $10 and includes a continental breakfast. The fee for the Fresh Connection team rounds in May is $100 per person. Organizations that have three or more participants can register at a reduced fee of $75 per person.
