Appreciating the Complexity of Project Management Execution: Using Simulation in the Classroom
Hartman, Nathan S.; Watts, Charles A.; Treleven, Mark D.
Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, v11 n4 p323-334 Oct 2013
As the popularity and importance of project management increase, so does the need for well-prepared project managers. This article discusses our experiences using a project management simulation in undergraduate and MBA classes to help students better grasp the complexity of project management. This approach gives students hands-on experience with many facets in the project management life cycle and provides them with feedback on their performance as project managers. This article provides an overview of the simulation exercises, guidance for classroom integration, and evidence of effectiveness.
