Learning to lead, to create quality, to influence change in projects

The use of simulations to enhance professional crafts has a long history. Simulations can be used to accelerate the learning curve, and reduce the risks associated with training. The authors of this article have developed a series of simulation exercises designed to help participants learn key integrated project skills in an accelerated fashion. Drawing on Total Quality Management (TQM) concepts of process improvement and the ideas of educator Malcolm Knowles, these small-scale simulations model project team interactions, build on shared experience, and use experiential learning for project managers. The simulations share the common theme of building organizational effectiveness while simultaneously accomplishing project goals efficiently.
