Practical Applications

Using the PMBOK® Guide as the foundation, our project management simulations allow users to apply theory to practice by running a project management simulation from beginning to end, and to benchmark their performance against industry standards. During the simulation run, there are NO lectures or quizzes. Instead, the user learns through experience by receiving feedback from the simulation guide or through the interaction of the simulation stakeholders based on the decisions made during the project. This virtual method is the most realistic approach to how project managers learn in the real world, by trial and error, except running this simulation will not affect a person’s career or reputation due to any mistakes. In addition, there are interactive activities the user will complete, thus engaging in real project management issues.

In today’s market, project managers are required to hit the ground running with their skills and expertise. Our simulation platform offers real world experience and prepares project managers for the many unforeseen challenges they are likely to encounter during their career, thereby improving their skills and minimizing the risk of costly errors.

The Power of Simulation

Simulations are more than a learning tool; they provide an interactive medium that gives you the opportunity to develop and practice skills directly relevant to your career.

Flight simulators are one of the best examples of the many advantages of simulations. Aspiring pilots study equipment, rules, and procedures, but they also need many person-hours in a cockpit to refine their skills before they are licensed to fly. Flying in a simulator is the closest means to the real flight experience; it’s convenient and inexpensive, and it offers a safe way to practice without the fear of making mistakes.

Pilots use simulators to develop their skills and practice real-world scenarios. Why shouldn’t project managers benefit from the same tools?

Don’t spend thousands of dollars on training to only devote countless hours simply memorizing facts, formulas, and methodologies. Invest in your future - or your company’s future - by using one of our project management simulations to help refine your skills through practice and application.

Getting Started

Double Masters creates, develops and delivers project management simulations for current and aspiring project managers. We offer project management simulations to the industry as an on-demand course. Our pre-built simulation is used in a range of environments, from the university classroom as a supplement to academic work, to the corporate environment as a training tool for PMOs, and to the individual project manager seeking PDUs to maintain their certification. In our project management simulation, expect to run a project from beginning to end, making decisions, creating a schedule and budget, reading status reports, controlling a project, understanding human resources and how they affect a project, and many more challenges you would expect on a real project. The benefit of taking our simulation is that you can learn from your mistakes without affecting your career or reputation. At the end of the simulation, you will have gained real life experience running a project while applying the fundamentals of the PMBOK® Guide to a project.

Double Masters offers you a choice of prebuilt simulations, or we can build one to meet the unique requirements of your organization. Browse our selection of prebuilt simulations. If you still can’t decide which one is best for you, contact us today to discuss your needs.
