A Davis & Dean flight Simulation for Leaders

Davis and Dean

Increasingly, work is done by real-time, project-specific teams. As the core of an organization shrinks, better use must be made of the resources that remain and of contractors, temporaries and parttimers. The complex resource management challenges that result are natural applications for project management skills. These skills facilitate any activity comprised of defined interrelated tasks that must be completed on time and within budget, while meeting specified customer requirements.

Equally valuable for technical and non-technical managers, this 3- day intense workshop is useful to individual contributors as well as to project leaders. Both line and staff functions will benefit from attendance, and whether a seasoned project manager or new to management, participants will grow and learn from this experience.

Learning Methods

  • Experienced certified instructors express concepts, tools and techniques; and facilitate group discussion.
  • In the same way pilots are trained in flight simulators, we immerse project managers in relevant, realistic reactions of their workplace, inundating them with simultaneous, multi-dimensional dilemmas that real-world project managers face, and add the urgency and intensity of a compressing time line.
  • Workshop participants working in small groups reinforce concepts, tools and techniques through practical exercises in the context of the simulation.
