With projects becoming more complex, technology allowing for more real-time feedback & teams becoming more distributed or virtual in their work, project leaders & team members require more than the latest technology, charts & critical path analysis to navigate & lead their teams to successful project completion. Understanding and managing the people and team dimensions of leading projects is critical.
The Leading Projects Simulation (LPS) is a dynamic computer-based learning experience that allows classroom or online participants to learn & apply core project leadership principles & practices in a simulated business environment.
LPS gives teams an opportunity to experience how their decisions, in all key areas of a project, determine the success or failure of project outcomes. Our PMI supported learning approach is designed to address leadership & management issues through the five phases of project management: initiating, planning, executing, controlling/monitoring and closing.
LPS will move your team from talking about issues to experiencing first-hand how best practice in project leadership impacts project outcomes.
Simulets: Bite-Sized Learning
LPS consists of 3 bite-sized simulets that can be taken together, singularly or selectively combined based on targeted learning outcomes.
This is Simulet 2 of LPS: Project Planning, which can logically be done after Simulet 1: Project Initiation, or as a standalone module.
Project Planning: Taking the time upfront to plan saves time later in managing project team issues. Developing & managing relationships, handling key team development issues, addressing budget & technology requirements and managing stakeholder relationships are the focus of this simulet. At the close of this simulet, participants will be able to:
- Explore project risks & identify strategies to manage diverse risks
- Manage key team relationship issues to include trust, cohesion, personal vulnerability, accountability and interdependence to achieve project outcomes
- Define decision-making and conflict resolution strategies
- Identify team development phase and leadership styles to manage each stage
- Examine and plan for virtual team applications
- Develop team influencing strategies to get the work done
