26 Project Management Network for Excellence in Learning & Teaching PMnetwork Case study from Hell on Pmnetwork.org.uk

27 Project Management Network for Excellence in Learning & Teaching PMnetwork Simulated business experiences Ideas taken from experience Very well received by employers and EE Very well like by students

28 Project Management Network for Excellence in Learning & Teaching Project Simulation at Lancaster From Classroom based to Real activity, from Thought exercise to Practical “doing” Purpose: Practice in developing a plan – and then running the plan – does the plan work? Practice at developing plans different types of project Integrative application – techniques/people/strategy/f inance/complexity Examples: Paper aeroplanes Make a video Negotiation Case study examination Applied project management Dissertation Projects Difficulties: Is it a project or a technical task? Is it big enough? Is sufficient data available? How to support learning? Can tutors support what happens?

30 Project Management Network for Excellence in Learning & Teaching Applied Project Management Events Teams of about 6-8 Project brief: delivery, obstacles, prime Encourage negotiation and co- operation Produce plans, presentation and Q+A Prime allocated, review plans Activities Critical Reflection Emergent Personalities Clarification of brief, making assumptions Competitive? Lack of understanding Focus on doing rather than managing Oh, so that’s what it was all about...!

31 Project Management Network for Excellence in Learning & Teaching Simulation Activity Timescale Plan and Prep min activity Project Review Production costs £60/min/person Cost of material: £10/sheet Selling price depends on design repeatability and accuracy, pricing advice starts at 1225 Task Teams of 3: PM, Designer, Finance Director Remainder: observers Produce prototype to hit target at 8ft Earn profit over 1000 units Cannot cut/tear sheets Paper ball sells at £6 Paper dart starts at £15

32 Project Management Network for Excellence in Learning & Teaching Project Review Activity How well was the activity planned? –Requirements captured, activities identified, risks? How well was the plan followed? Did it matter? How well was the project managed? What lessons can be carried to future projects?

33 Project Management Network for Excellence in Learning & Teaching Simulation Review Activity 3 outputs: Did the simulation work? Why? How could the idea of simulations be developed to enhance learning? What can be taken away from today?
