We provide a hands-on project simulation exercise by forming workgroups that have the responsibility for planning and executing a project. Build a product according to the scope of sponsor specifications and implement the disciplines learned to deliver it within time and budget. We add twists, turns and other project real world problems for the teams to work through which adds to the fun of this creative simulation which effectively reinforces concepts and tools taught in the course.
