Designed to accelerate performance improvement and cultural change in your organisation, The Manufacturing Game is a dynamic experiential learning simulation, which has been used by hundreds of the world’s best organisations to help deliver superior bottom line results.


“The Game teaches systems thinking; how the actions of one area impacts the function of another and the profitability of the whole,” explains Reliable Manufacturing Managing Director, Andrew Fraser. “It helps people to shift their thinking to new ways of working - cross-functional, cross-asset, and cross-organisation.”

Best played with a cross-functional mix of people from the same plant facility, including Operations Directors, Plant Managers and Maintenance Technicians, the Game aligns the different functions in your organisation with one another and with the overall business goals.


But it’s not just about the two-day workshop, it’s about implementing these practices after the workshop, says Fraser: “An output of the workshop is the formation of small cross-functional action teams to implement learnings by eliminating real life defects. Typically such defects can be eliminated in less than 90 days for little or no expense, but often with significant benefit for the business - a return on investment of up to 10:1 in twelve months.”

ConocoPhilips are strong advocates of the workshop and are pleased to be hosting the next public event. You can find out more information about how to book your place here:
