Stepping up to the role of leading a project is intimidating enough for a project leader, but it can be a major risk for the business if the first time they lead a project is in a live environment. This 2 day simulation workshop provides a realistic and dynamic experience of running a large project in a risk-free environment.

You Will Learn How To:

  • Define objectives and clarify success criteria
  • Form contract and resourcing strategies
  • Manage risk and uncertainty
  • Communicate effectively with stakeholders
  • Balance conflicting stakeholder interests and managing scope changes
  • Understand the independence of scope, risk, contract and stakeholder variables

Important Course Information

  • Course Preparation

    This course requires some pre-course reading.

  • What is a Simulation?

    Simulated learning blends immersive 'virtual' gaming with face-to-face tuition to create a 'real-life' learning experience.

  • What the experience will feel like for an attendee?

    Teams of three attendees play the same 'risk-free' scenario (a true ‘level playing field’) which you don’t get in the workplace, so attendees can really get a handle on which specific skills they need to improve, and get help with improving them from our highly-skilled facilitators who add-value and embed learning by sharing their real-life experiences.

  • How does the simulation work?

    The Simulation is based on Academic Research that models human behavioural systems and has high validity - attendees cannot ‘game’ the simulation or ‘fix’ the results. It is a computer based, realistic scenario, playing (and scored) against simulated characters, with their own personalities, beliefs and traits. These stakeholders play back at you, changing their behaviour, based on what you do (using Higher Order Artificial Intelligence). There’s a ‘perfect’ score, based on objectives and a 'perfect' outcome, with attendees assessed on how near the ‘perfect’ answer they get.
