Worcester Business School (WBS), University of Worcester in collaboration with the Association for Project Management (APM) Midlands Branch held the Project Management Simulation Training Exercise event entitled “New Hangar Simulation” aimed at Business School students who have attended their Project Management module as part of their Undergraduate Business Course.

The simulation training exercise was run by Dr Andrew Bell, Senior Lecturer Coventry University. The event was aimed to involve the participants in a simulated PM environment, and give them experience in developing risk management strategies and create work breakdown structures, which are important tools in the professional project manager’s toolbox. 

The event was very well received by the students taking part in the exercise who commented that it was an extremely useful exercise as it gave them invaluable insight to project management. Some of them also said that the exercises made them think about a future career in project management.       

Dr Vessela Warren, Operations, Project and Risk Management Module Leader at the WBS said that the PM simulation exercises provided an opportunity to the students to get involved in a simulated real life project management situation which offered a perspective of the complexity of project management and help them learn different transferable skills.

Graduate project manager profile

I was very proud to have been named 2016 Young Project Manager of the Year for the Midlands. Following my early career change I have worked hard to build a career in this industry, so to have gained this kind of recognition was very gratifying.
