Playmakers® certification - virtual

How do you lead a succesful project balancing quality, goodwill and budget when your team might be a mix of primadonnas, introverts, conservative or dominant personality profiles?

From outside, project management is often seen as merely planning and budgeting. In real life, the project managers have to juggle between consciously leading a diverse team and cope with changes in expectations from the organisation.

When taking the role as a Project Manager the art is to be clear on your individual team members' commitment, clarity and role throughout the different project phases. Skills in motivation, conflict management, communication and decision making will all come in handy here.

Playmakers® is a leadership simulation focused on developing exactly these skills that lead to high-performing teams and successful project management. The game is based upon a concrete case with three phases with unforeseen difficulties. You will need to consider the different personalities and competencies of your team members while balancing the organisation and the project triangle; budget, schedule & goodwill.
