Description

21 PDUs (14 Technical, 7 Leadership)

The Project Management Fundamentals Simulation Powered Learning® Workshop is a 3 day class where the students have a realistic, hands-on experience in learning, applying, practicing and developing fundamental project management skills. After short lectures, students practice and develop their project management skills by planning and managing a computer simulation of a realistic project.

In this workshop participants learn the fundamental tools and techniques of planning and managing a project from beginning to end. Good project managers understand how to develop a Project Charter and use it to create a Work Breakdown Structure, Network Diagram and Gantt (Bar) Chart. Having the fundamental tools for planning is only one part of good project management. Using the tools in the execution of the project to help you manage the four key project variables of schedule, scope, cost and quality is where successful project managers find the real benefit. The best project managers also know that the “fifth” key project variable; team productivity, is critical to managing the other four variables. That is why this workshop also emphasizes and provides real-life practice in learning leadership and team-building. In teams of four, participants actually manage a simulated real-life project. They learn what it feels like as they make real decisions and get real feedback. The simulation powered learning is practical, engaging, intense and challenging. It’s designed to give you the practice and confidence to apply your new skills.
