Why Use Project Management Simulations?

Project Confusion is a paper-based/classroom team working activity that can take as little as 30 minutes to complete. It is ideally suited to project team development situations. Project Management is a complex and dynamic subject. It cannot be taught solely by classroom lectures, books, or case studies. Teaching team working theory is easy, but no two people are the same. Activities are required for students to learn through experience.
