July 2022 Meetup – The Beer Game

board game


Our next meetup is scheduled for Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at West End Conference Center in St. Louis Park, MN. The meetup will take place from 5:30 – 7:30 pm Central with doors opening at 3:30pm. There will be no Zoom option for this event so please plan your travel accordingly.

BILL FARMER will be facilitating THE BEER GAME.

The Beer Game is a management simulation developed by the Systems Dynamics Group at MIT’s Sloan School. The game board portrays the four sectors of a beer distribution chain. Playing the game is terribly simple, requiring only a decision of how much beer to order week by week.

Supply chain, what could go wrong? Play and you’ll laugh, you’ll curse under your breath, and you’ll learn. You’ll learn what Peter Senge means when he says that those who don’t understand their system become its prisoners!

The Beer Game is played by teams, each team having a minimum of four players. Sign up as an individual or as a team with your friends. The number of teams is limited, so don’t delay.
