Playmakers® certification

From outside, project management is often seen as merely planning and budgeting. In real life, the project managers have to juggle between consciously leading a high-performing team and cope with changes in expectations and scope.

How do you lead a mixed team of primadonnas, introverts, impatient or dominant personalities? Personality traits can be many. The art here as a project manager is to master balancing both your different team members role, clarity and commitment with the actual project including budget, quality and goodwill in the organisation. Skills in motivation, conflict management, communication and decision making will all come in handy here.

PLAYMAKERS® is a leadership simulation focused on developing exactly these skills that lead to high-performing teams and successful project management. The game is based upon a concrete case with three phases with unforeseen difficulties including changing goals and visions. The players are invited to analyze and handle the challenges within team and project leadership.
