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.
This course requires some pre-course reading.
Simulated learning blends immersive 'virtual' gaming with face-to-face tuition to create a 'real-life' learning experience.
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.
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.
The simulation project is the construction of a new football stadium which is played in teams. The primary objective is to complete the project on time, on budget and consistently whilst keeping major stakeholders informed and satisfied. It hones player’s skills in risk analysis, risk management, change control, issues analysis, issue management, stakeholder management, and critical path analysis and resource (human and financial) management.
