Project Phoenix - a Project Management Business Game

A Project Management Business Game

The crowds are waiting… competitors are watching expectantly. Can Project Phoenix resurrect your theme park’s dwindling trade or is the ride of your life likely to derail before it even begins? You need to bring all your Project Management excellence to ensure success. Can you live up to those high expectations?

Quanta's Project Phoenix business game bridges the gap between knowledge and behaviour, enabling delegates to learn for themselves the importance of not just learning, but applying sound project principles. Each team member will have the opportunity to experience various roles with the project – how will you ace up to being Project Manager as the launch date approaches?


*This Business Game can be run over 1 or 2 days.*
