SimulTrain® Strategic Management Simulation Workshop

University of Scranton - Scranton, PA

Instructor: John Juzbasich
Experience the new portfolio management simulation game from the people that brought you SimulTrain®!

The new SimulTrain® Strategic Project Portfolio Management workshop extends the application of the best-in-class project management, SimulTrain®, for supervisors through senior executives who want sharper strategic skills. It is a Strategic Project Portfolio Management Simulation for Senior Leadership that drives strategic execution to maximize business value delivery through the selection, optimization, and oversight of project investments which align to long range business goals and strategies.

How it works

Teams of four compete in leading a five-year program and determine how to best choose projects, prioritize them, react to risks and opportunities, and make decisions in a realistically serious game. With the facilitation of a professional trainer, the main objectives are to:

  1. Obtain at least a Strategic Value of 80 points;
  2. Complete the five-year program with a positive cast balance of at least $20 million;
  3. Obtain an expected NPV of $50 million; and
  4. Make the program profitable in 3 years.
