Project Management Simulation Workshop

Turn theory into practice with a team-based, time-sensitive project simulation.

Your immediate takeaway

• Tackle a real-world execution of the PMBOK in a simulated environment
• Match resources and skills crucial to each project activity
• Grow your capabilities by experiencing the pressures of a real project

Managing a project is like piloting a plane. In flight, anything can happen, from sudden turbulence to a stalled engine. Real-world projects are also subject to unplanned events, from missed milestones to poor communications. Like the pilot, the project manager must learn to react quickly and take appropriate action. In this seminar, you’ll have the unique opportunity to time-travel through a three-month project in a matter of hours. In the simulated project environment, you’ll experience leadership challenges and changing expectations—as well as the stress, emotions and other issues that can derail projects.

Working in groups of four, you and your peers will start with an unfinished project plan and see it through, from planning to closing. With the clock ticking, the project simulation software will hold you accountable for reaching every milestone. You’ll choose your project team and assign resources to project activities, and make the necessary decisions to solve problems, manage conflicts and motivate team members. The immediate feedback you’ll get will help you identify areas where improvement is needed.

Attend this fast-paced, decision-making project simulation to help ensure your projects succeed first time, every time.
