PROJECT MANAGEMENT BUSINESS GAME

Born in 2012 from the collaboration between JEst and Horsa‘s PPM Division, Project Management Business Game aims to test the participants’ entrepreneurial skills by offering them the opportunity to apply theoretical concepts learned during the training courses.

 

 

What is PMBG?

Based on Horsa’s consulting experience and on the innovative spirit of our Junior Enterprise, PM Business Game is a simulation of planning and management of a project in a competitive context full of unexpected events.

Starting by defining Project Management as discipline with the objective of carefully and successfully administer activities, the PM Business Game allows you to actively learn the tools and peculiarities of Project Management within a “protected” environment and through a real case application.

Why choose PMBG?

Among the primary goals of this simulation, one of the most appreciated aspects is team building. Indeed, cohesion, the ability to work in a team and the development of soft skills are milestones for the success of a project.

In addition, participants can bring into play their problem solving skills in identifying the right response to risks and in deciding how to act whether an unexpected event occurs during the game. The ability to rationally and promptly analyze them represents a great skill to develop for a Project Manager.

SIMULATION PHASES

h

1.PLANNING

The planning of the project starts with an assessment of the initial setted budget. Then, it proceeds with the selection of roles, suppliers and an estimate of the time and cost required to complete the project.

2.CONSTRUCTION

In this phase, all the participants of each group are required to create the model respecting the estimated times, the instructions of the customer and, as much as possible, the estimated costs.

3.REPRLANNING

The construction phase is composed of re-planning moments. In case necessary modifications come up, they are useful to review the initial plan, in order to complete the plan in time. The game then continues.

Z

4.FINAL EVALUATION

Once the time is up, teams are required to present the final result of their work and, accordingly, they will be evaluated. Each team has the opportunity to discuss the problems faced during the simulation and re-evaluate the decisions they made

FAQ

To whom is this service addressed?

The simulation is addressed to companies and university students, both for training and recruiting purposes.

What is the maximum/minimum number of participants in the simulation?

The minimum number of participants is 3, which corresponds to the components of a team. In fact, it is possible to carry out the simulation even if there is only one team. The competing teams will be simulated using historical data.

The maximum number is 30, which corresponds to about 10 teams.

What knowledge must participants have beforehand?

Participants should know the basic tools of Project Management (Gantt Chart, Work Breakdown Structure).

Together with the simulation it is possible to request a Project Management training course at a reduced price, held by a qualified engineer in this subject.
