What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this training, learners will be able to: 

  • Identify the project management methods used in their organization and suggest the use of methods experienced in the session, which they have experienced.
  • Better understand their role as project managers in their organization, and focus their efforts to meet the project and organizational goals.

Description

In the fast-paced world of project management, traditional educational methods are evolving to incorporate more engaging, interactive, and practical tools. "Playing Project Management All the Way to Success," delves into the use of games and simulations to boost understanding and effectiveness in project management training. 

Project management simulation games are not just games; they allow us to learn by doing, rather than learning from theory. The games are intricate learning tools designed to mirror real-life scenarios that project managers often face. These simulations allow learners to make critical decisions, manage simulated team dynamics, and handle budget constraints in a risk-free environment.
