• risk and stakeholder analysis

• work breakdown structures

• bar charts

• budgeting

• cashflow

• resource allocation

• Participants organised in teams of 3 or 4, in order to share experiences

 

Training goals : Develop the key skills needed to plan and control projects 

 

Duration : Within 1 or 2 days workshop 

 

 

Structure of simulation : Dialogues between participants and virtual characters 

 

 

Languages : 

• English 

• French 

 

Scenario : Follow-up of a generic project

The simulation challenges teams to use the techniques simultaneously and it gives them a chance to experience the difficult trade-offs and the “juggling” act that project managers usually face. Contacts are taken by email, phone calls, meetings. 

The simulation is typically used within 1 and 2 day workshops, for between 9 and 40 participants.
