The complex project simulation provides a risk-free experience of managing a complex project in a virtual environment. Virtual teams will compete to achieve the best project outcomes. They will also be given the chance to evaluate and compare decisions made by each team.

How does the project simulation work?

The simulation enables participants to work on the construction of a football stadium. Here, they’ll make critical decisions, engage with stakeholders, use effective communications skills and manage teams relevant to a complex project.

How will it be implemented?

  • Registrations will close 1 week before the event to allow time for participants to be put in teams of 3-4 people.
  • Teams will be allocated by the International Centre for Complex Project Management (ICCPM) to connect people from different industries.
  • 1 person in each team will be responsible for downloading the simulation software.
  • The Zoom Video Conferencing Platform will be used to conduct the online simulation.
  • All participants will take part in a joint briefing and debrief, and teams will be placed in breakout rooms.
  • 1 team member will run the simulation and share their screen with their teammates. No other software is required during the simulation.

Who is this for?

This simulation project provides a unique opportunity to test your complex project leadership skills. It's best suited for:

  • Senior Managers
  • Project Sponsors
