Training goals : how to develop leadeship skills

This simulation has been created by Prendo Simulations Limited, a UK limited company.

Spatium Project Leadership simulation allows participants, organised in competing teams, to manage a complex project from initiation through to operation. It gives teams a chance to experience how their decisions in all the key project management disciplines combine to determine the final outcomes. 

This simulation was developed after conducting a thorough survey of the most common causes of project failure and it requires teams to make judgements in several key areas including: clarifying and keeping focus on objectives (e.g. commercial outcomes), scope definition and changes, contract and procurement strategy, resourcing, scheduling, risk and stakeholder management. Crucially, the simulation brings to life the importance of integrating these disciplines. 

This simulation was developed in collaboration with the Major Projects Association, with expert input from across the MPA’s network of contacts, in particular Dr Martin Barnes FREng CBE. 

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