@tech4people: If the game is interactive and fun, I think kids will get interested. For instance, my kids like playing games that involve the whole food production process.

@Rich, I am not a cartoon enthusiast, but if that will help pass the message across, why not? What characters do you think the "gang" will be comprised of?

Prabhakar,

Monopoly was a Blockbuster Game in its Time.Just wonder if something similar will definitely cut it today.

Today's Kids are too hooked onto their Smartphones playing Candy Crush and the likes.

Maybe that's the kind of a Game they need to get Kids Hooked?

Just wondering.

hm,

I don't think simply throwing Money at a Problem like this will deliver the best results here.

Look at Finance(Investment Banking,Markets) for comparison's sake.

We want to attract Really bright and talented kids to this space who will and stay constantly engaged here.

That needs a whole lot of thought & Creativity involved here.

Regards

Ashish.

Cartoon is really a good idea but it's just that the involvement is one sided and limited too.

Provide them with lots of money - for study and for job. They will flood supply chain management, just for money.

A better simulation of the supply chain experience would be the game Twister:

The game "Monopoly" has remained a very popular game over many generations and is played by the kids all over the world.

 

A board game similar to this with a focus on supply chain management can become as popular as Monopoly if designed well.

Wait, I have an idea. How about a cartoon series called "The Supply Chain Gang"?

"What else can be done to fill the need and close the talent gap?"

If board games don't do it, then I don't know what will.
