Challenge Of Egypt Simulation
Still a large percentage of Projects fail to realize the required results. Some reports suggest between 70 – 80%, some put it alarmingly higher! All this despite the enormous investment in Project Management training such as PMI or Prince2. This is generally not because of the lack of education or theory, but lack of understanding of how to translate theory into practice, or the lack of the right behaviors within the project team.
Why do projects continually fail? What are some of the key reasons? Our global surveys reveal top issues being: ‘the sponsor role in governing the project’, ‘end-user engagement and involvement’, ‘poor requirements specification and planning’, ‘poor project management discipline, roles and management of scope changes’, ‘lack of project leadership and soft skills’.
An additional strain is put on Project management by the drive towards ‘Agile’ practices, giving rise to Agile Project management and Prince2 Agile.
This business simulation can be used to help address the common failures mentioned above, or it can be used to teach people more about Agile project management disciplines.
