The Beer Game

Gra Piwna-gra szkoleniowa

Game description

A simulation about the optimization of processes within the organization. Classic among international training games.
It is a simulation of orders and products flow between the brewery, the distributor, the wholesaler and the retailer. Having limited access to information participants usually fall in the trap: with consecutive rounds the chain becomes more and more unstable and the effect of panic ensues. Everyone believes that the other chains are responsible for the destabilization.
The game is based on the metaphor of beer cases supply chain. It demonstrates how the lack of communication, cooperation and information flow affect the organization efficiency. It raises the awareness on the importance of each of the elements in the smooth running of the organization. The game also shows consequences of decisions made: how decisions taken within one chain may destabilize the whole chain.
