- with Grundfos

Date

6 March

Would you like to participate in a one-day case competition with focus on solving a real-life supply chain case? Then join Implement Consulting Group and Grundfos for Solution Day 2019 in Aarhus.

SOLUTION DAY is a concept aimed at students enrolled in a master’s degree programme or students in their final year of a bachelor programme. The day is hosted by Grundfos and Implement.

At Solution Day, our focus will be on supply chain management and operations management, and you will get the opportunity to apply theory to a practical case.

A day of solution creation

  • The day will kick off with short presentations by Implement and Grundfos. Here we will present you with the tools to dive into the supply chain case.
  • After the presentations, you will be working on the case for approximately 4-6 hours. The case work will take place in groups made by Implement and Grundfos. Afterwards, you get the chance to present your solution in front of managers from Implement and Grundfos.
  • Concluding the day, you will attend the price ceremony. Here, it will also be possible to socialise with the other student participants as well as network with people from Grundfos and Implement.

By joining Solution Day, you will get insights into how Grundfos and Implement use best practice tools and concepts within supply chain management to solve a real case within supply chain sustainability. The day will also give you great networking opportunities with professionals from both Implement and Grundfos, giving you a chance to see what it is like to be working within their fields.
