  • Explain how critical thinking can be used to enhance decision making
  • Describe the steps that teams and individuals use to make effective decisions

4CShare Global Project Management Simulation

Cost: $359.00
PDU: 10 | CEU: 1
A MindEdge course
Access Time: 180 days

orig-7289602In this simulation, you've been named the project leader for an exciting new project—the development of a knowledge sharing database for your company, Four Corners BioPharma, Inc. The project will involve establishing processes for storing and sharing knowledge in your multinational corporation and developing the 4CShare software itself.

Over the course of the project, you'll make decisions about the project scope, schedule, budget, quality, and risk. As you make these decisions, an adaptive scoreboard will reflect the impact of your choices on project success. The goal in the simulation is to optimize positive scores across the following project management factors (as identified by the PMI® 2011 role delineation study):

  • Initiating the Project
  • Planning the Project
  • Executing the Project
  • Monitoring and Controlling the Project
  • Closing the Project
  • Cross-Cutting Knowledge and Skills

This simulation is meant to sharpen your understanding of key project management skills. Those skills include:

  1. Leading a project team
  2. Balancing competing interests, such as project scope, quality, schedule, budget, resources, risk, communications, and procurement considerations throughout every project phase
  3. Dealing with controversial decisions and the potential for negative team or customer outcomes
  4. Analyzing schedule, budget, and quality data and using that information to make educated decisions
  5. Addressing issues related to project procurement

This simulation is designed to align with the PMI® PMBOK® Guide and the 2011 role delineation study. No prior knowledge of the PMI® framework is required, but feedback will refer to PMBOK® Guide sections where they are relevant.

Many sections will have quizzes, and your score on these quizzes will determine whether you can receive a certificate of completion, and Project Management Institute professional development units (PDUs) for completing the simulation. If you average a cumulative 70% or above on the quizzes, you will receive the certificate.

Note: Learners who successfully complete this simulation will be awarded 10 PDUs/contact hours.

Target Audience: This simulation is designed for adult learners with some project management experience.

Level: Intermediate

Prerequisites: This simulation does not have any prerequisites.

Estimated time to complete: 10 hours of online course work

Ask the Expert: This course has an "Ask the Expert" feature, which submits your questions directly to an expert in the field you are studying. Questions are answered as quickly as possible and usually within 24 hours.

Allerton Connector Highway Project Management Simulation

Cost: $359.00
PDU: 10 | CEU: 1
A MindEdge course
Access Time: 180 days

orig-7289602Through this simulation, the learner will play the role of a project manager on a highway construction project in the small city of Allerton. This project is considered to be a "major project" by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), which means it has a budget of $500 million or more.

Learners will be asked to make a series of decisions during the simulation. Each decision will impact the project in different ways. The goal in the simulation is to optimize positive scores across the following project management factors (as identified by the PMI® 2011 role delineation study):

  • Initiating the Project
  • Planning the Project
  • Executing the Project
  • Monitoring and Controlling the Project
  • Closing the Project
  • Cross-cutting Skills

"This simulation is a winner! I would highly recommend the Allerton Connector Project Management Simulation to anyone looking for a capstone experience to test their knowledge and judgment in a real world project management environment."

— Lee R. Lambert, PMP®, CEO, Lambert Consulting Group,

Project Management Institute Fellow, 2009

Learning Outcomes

This simulation is meant to sharpen your understanding of key project management skills. Those skills include:

  1. Leading a project team
  2. Balancing competing interests, such as project scope, quality, schedule, budget, resources, risk, communications, and procurement considerations throughout every project phase
  3. Dealing with controversial decisions and the potential for negative team or customer outcomes
  4. Analyzing schedule, budget, and quality data and using that information to make educated decisions
  5. Addressing issues related to project procurement

PMBOK Guide® Alignment

This simulation is designed to align with the PMI® PMBOK® Guide and the 2011 role delineation study. No prior knowledge of the PMI® framework is required, but feedback will refer to PMBOK® Guide sections where they are relevant.

Certificate of Completion

Many sections will have quizzes, and your score on these quizzes will determine whether you can receive a certificate of completion, and Project Management Institute professional development units (PDUs) for completing the simulation. If you average a cumulative 70% or above on the quizzes, you will receive the certificate.

Note: Learners who successfully complete this simulation will be awarded 10 PDUs/contact hours.

Target Audience: This simulation is designed for adult learners with some project management experience.

Level: Intermediate

Prerequisites: This simulation does not have any prerequisites.

Estimated time to complete: 10 hours of online course work

Ask the Expert: This course has an "Ask the Expert" feature, which submits your questions directly to an expert in the field you are studying. Questions are answered as quickly as possible and usually within 24 hours.

Required Material: This course does not require any additional purchases of supplementary materials.
