Project Management with Simulation Executive Workshop


In Merit's Project Management with Simulation Executive Overview, the experience of managing projects is brought to life. The project requirements, the resource constraints, timing and budgeting challenges, everyday interruptions, and sudden changes that emerge, are all included in the simulation. Using SimulTrain®, a computer-based simulator, is invigorating, exciting, a bit stressful, and very engaging. You will be able to apply your learning and team-building skills immediately.
