PREMIUM webinar

We all struggle with the concept of uncertainty, but it does not deter us from trying from planning the unplannable. This webinar will focus on developing project teams with the ability to share and collaborate turning ambiguity from a deficit to a vehicle that allows your assignee's to produce added-value deliverables. We start this webinar by describing the current situation in how disjointed teams directly contribute to project failure. The effectiveness of a games model, through use of project-based simulation, is then characterized. The basis of this webinar is then illustrated through a number of situational real-life exercises performed. Lastly, we discuss the expectations of this approach, listing some of the lurking pitfalls of this method.
