PROJECT MANAGEMENT



 

A project management simulation Cesim Project is a team-oriented interactive programme that has been designed to capture the essence of project management in a collaborative, competitive and variable medium.

 

This business simulation has been developed by the world's leading experts in the field of learning through action products - CESIM OY of Finland.

 

FOCUS

 

Project management, team work and leadership, effective colloboration, communication and interaction

 

TARGET AUDIENCE

 

Project managers, project team members, management and workforce of the project offices, in-house Project Management development programmes

 

PARTICIPANT TASKS

 

Each participant in a Cesim Project simulation exercise has an active role as part of a project team. The project team together is tasked with completing a large sub-project and the entire project organisation must successfully complete multiple possibly interlocking projects each colored by some unique problem spots. The success of the teams vitally depends on the project members’ ability to communicate appropriate action plans within the newly formed project team. Specifically the project teams and members must decide upon formation of project teams based on unique skill sets and task requirements, determination of appropriate budgets, prioritization of project tasks, use of overtime hours, preparation for unexpected changes, outsourcing of tasks, and potential changes in project team composition.

 

OBJECTIVES & KEY SUCCESS FACTORS

 

Success is measured in a mixture of collaborative and competitive elements. Project teams in charge of their respective sub-projects within the larger project organisation seek to complete their tasks with the best quality, least time and cost and within budgetary constraints. Therefore, all participants must find the fine balance between exercising cost containment and meeting the project deadlines. For each individual project or programme the system takes measures of its quality, time and costs. The simulation has indicators that demonstrate the index of individual project costs and total accumulative cost of the entire programme, project losses, as well as how effectively the project director manages available resourses within the scope of the ultimate project goals and obectives achievement.

 

KEY DEVELOPMENT AREAS

 

  • Development of abilities to identify and analyse key variables that influence the successful completion of the entire programme and overlapping projects

  • Practice of organisational skills and ability to channel and coordinate the action plans within the complex framework of the project team tasks that are sub-projects of a larger corporate programme

  • Development of the right approach to formulation, implementation and adjustment of the project management strategies with the priority of avoiding problem zones and obstacles that arise in the process of a several projects development within the frame of one larger programme

  • Improvement of analytical approach to fact-based decision making with the purpose of optimising the expenditure of resources and meeting the overall target financial performance

  • Practice and acquisition of teamwork experience and collective problem resolution in a project management business unit

 

 

EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS

 

Better understanding of the critical element of communication in project work. Increased understanding of the interplay of collaborative and competitive elements in an environment that puts interpersonal skills at test. Insights into systematic measurement of project goals and key metrics like time, cost, budget overruns etc. Newly found appreciation of differences of opinion and variance in teamwork skills, and for people management.
