Help with 'The Beer Game' LO25837

Date: 01/03/01

Happy holidays, everyone!

I have facilitated the Beer Game several times and, in general, it has
been a successful learning experience. I have used it mostly as part of a
systems thinking workshop. In a couple of weeks, I'll be facilitating it
again and the audience is a mixed group of managers from a manufacturing
organization who are experiencing supply chain management problems.

I thought I'd put out a call for any advice or suggestions for making the
game more rewarding. Has anyone found a particularly successful way to
debrief/ wrap up? to make connections to supply chain management
problems? Any problems you encounter with the game and ways to overcome

Thank you in advance.
