They say that “failing to plan is the same as planning to fail.” By focusing on developing sound project management skills and processes, projects are more realistically budgeted for and resourced, risks are managed and mitigated, and projects are far more likely to be executed on time without severe consequences to people.

This is a project management workshop with a difference. As opposed to a day of dry theory, participants are exposed to a live, simulated project where they have to build a physical structure within an allotted time. As the project management methodology is introduced through the day, participants apply it to the simulation over successive rounds, and the difference in project execution becomes evident in a compelling way. Not only is the learning intense – it is also fun!
