The Battle:

Developing project leadership

Duration:  4 hours

Driving a culture of high performance and collaboration, this highly interactive simulation can be delivered of groups from 50 - 200 people.  Our team can work with you to customise the event to reflect the organisation’s unique internal project management environment methodology, tools, roles and signature behaviours (culture).

Supporting the development of emotional intelligence, social and political acumen, and the leadership skills essential for delivering successful projects in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment.

The challenge

Set in a post-apocalyptic world people work in teams within opposing armies to prepare for battle. Challenged to draw on their project management and leadership skills to build a working war machine on-time, on-budget, and on-specification.

Team work is the key to success as teams navigate through a dynamic world of competing constraints, emergent complexity, and competitive or collaborative interactions with other teams, building to an epic battle featuring drones, nerf guns, and a final game twist.

Expected outcomes

The experiential aspect of this simulation also gives people an opportunity to apply a range of technical project management tools and techniques in an environment that simulates the constraints and complexities of the workplace.

Developing the skills around scoping projects, scheduling, budgeting, quality management, risk and issue management, reporting and project evaluation. As well as these technical project management skills, participants develop critical interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence to support resilience, stakeholder engagement, inter- and intra-team collaboration, and project leadership.

  • Can be tailored to focus on your strategic objectives.

  • Great way to inject a sense fun, whilst people are learning new skills.

  • Enhances collaboration between team members.
