Simulation in the Training of R & D Project Managers.
Dillman, Duane H.; Cook, Desmond L.
Simulation is defined as a training exercise for administrators to develop decision-making skills in applying management processes and concepts in the areas of educational program and project management. A simulation exercise, comprising about half of a 1-week training program, was tested with almost 200 participants over a period of 15 months. Basic planning and programing features of the training seminars are outlined and the format of the individual sessions is described. Tabulated responses of 138 seminar participants to a 10-item evaluation questionnaire indicated an overall positive reaction toward the use of simulation in the training program. (JK)
