CLWD - Apples Oranges

Apples & Oranges

Strengthen Your Competitive Advantage:

In one day, employees at any level can develop a real understanding of the flow of resources in your company and see the “big picture”, so they can make meaningful contributions to the business. Participants manage a business “for 3 years” to improve performance. Working in teams, they compare the effects of management decisions in seemingly unrelated business areas—from inventory levels to customer service initiatives, thus comparing apples and oranges.

This helps them understand costs and income and how these impact the overall efficiency and profitability of the operation.
