Description

Innovative pedagogical game that introduces direct team competition as a gamification resource to foster learning in supply chain dynamics.

The core of the activity is a supply chain game in which two teams of 3-4 students each, participate in a competition game to gain market share when facing supply chain disruptions. Ultimately, it can show the reasons behind collaboration among supply chain market competitors, as well as consumer behaviors, to achieve a more sustainable market.

In this first experience it consists of 3 sessions:

Session 1:  Introduction to supply chain basic agents and disruption management through the study of real cases. Description of the pedagogic game.

Session 2: The resilience game. Series of team decisions concerning supply chain resilience strategy. Simulation of evolution of market share based on an excel tool.

Session 3: Debriefing of the game. Analysis of the concepts behind the experience leading to understanding of environmental impact originated from the dynamics of supply chain competitors and the dynamics of consumer behavior.

The idea is to explore the possibility of evolving the experience to a 1 ECTS activity based on the game, by complementing the 3 sessions with a case develop assignment and another session of team presentations of the respective cases. Furthermore, if some means are available to develop a Web version of the game, the game could be scaled and offered as a resource that could be played online as a complementary activity of a great number of European courses.

Initially, it is intented to be offered as face to face activity in UPM (Spain) and thus it is planned to be in Spanish. In case it can be of interest for international students to travel and join the course (maybe if different face to face UPM activities are bundled), we would be willing to switch to English language.
