What is it? Who is it for? How Long Does it Take?

The Garden Party Project Simulation is a test of information sharing, communication, and leadership. There is also some debate regarding the scope of the project that needs to be resolved to everybody’s satisfaction!

The simulation was designed for Project Management students. However very little project management skill is required. It is also suitable for Project Team members who may be learning about project management, or used on a team-building course.
