Project Management Simulations

As projects become a more important part of business life, managing projects is even more important. These two simulations take participants through from the basics to managing complex projects under time pressure.

 

While enjoying all the benefits of the survival Simulations, they also teach Project Management skills, i.e. have to deliver on time and to budget. Bridge Builders gives greater insight into both the processes for managing projects from start to finish and all of the people complexities.

 

Verax simulations are highly respected for their quality, thorough research and lasting effectiveness, used as stimulating ice-breakers, or to put the brilliant finishing touch to any corporate function, they are amongst the most cost effective investments any organisation can make for its people.

 

Tests have shown that participants gain a range of skills which help them manage situations effectively, no matter what the setting.
