Purpose of the game: simply and easily illustrate to your employees the difference between "push" and "pull" processing using poker chips and dice.
In a push system, processes in the value stream are not well synchronized and the ability to satisfy customers is literally left to chance. In the game, after illustrating the failures of a push system, a pull system is introduced as a countermeasure to appropriately link and synchronize processes to customer demand. "Chance" is thereby eliminated and the benefits of pull processing are observed.
Extremely illuminating and educational and also a lot of fun and at times totally hilarious - the game provides many "Aha moments" to inspire and motivate you and your team to stop gambling with your company.
Includes: 600 chips, 30 dice, USB memory stick with instructions and a downloadable score sheet and a valuable 25-minute DVD, that also works great as a stand-alone training tool!
