The Challenge of Egypt

Challenge of Egypt is project management business simulation that lets participants engage in an interactive environment to learn through experience and practice the concepts of project management. A strong focus is placed on exploring options for handling difficult situations in a real-word project scenarios. 

Virtual Training or e-Learning?

We offer flexibility. You can choose from our selection of in-class courses as well as online courses.

Who should attend this simulation?

  • Students who followed Project Management training and want to learn how to apply the theory before going into their projects.
  • Teams who want to assess and improve the current way of working in projects. By playing this simulation they can experience possible improvement suggestions for their own projects.
  • Project teams during kickoff sessions. A perfect way of bringing the team together, including sponsors and users, and experience how we are going to work together in the project.

Manage Projects Successfully

How to translate Project Management theory into practise, Then this business simulation is for you too!

AGILE vs. Waterfall

Do you want to improve project management and therefore you have decided to switch from waterfall to agile? Or would you like to use agile for waterfall projects? Have you ever tried to combine the best of both approaches? Projects often fail because, among other things, the right methodology is not being used.

The solutions and options that this project simulation will show you:

Both of these are usable, mature methodologies. None is right or wrong.

  • We will show you when to use which approach
  • We will teach you how to work with tools like Agilometer (a tool that will check what is optimal in a given situation)

Agile

Agile is an iterative, team-based approach to development. This approach emphasizes the rapid delivery of an application in complete functional components. Rather than creating tasks and schedules, all time is “time-boxed” into phases called “sprints.” Each sprint has a defined duration (usually in weeks) with a running list of deliverables, planned at the start of the sprint. Deliverables are prioritized by business value as determined by the customer. If all planned work for the sprint cannot be completed, work is reprioritized and the information is used for future sprint planning.

Waterfall

Waterfall is a linear approach to software development. In this methodology, the sequence of events is something like:

  • Design
  • Fix any issues
  • Code and unit test
  • Perform system testing
  • Deliver the finished product
  • Gather and document requirements
  • Perform user acceptance testing (UAT)

In a true Waterfall development project, each of these represents a distinct stage of software development, and each stage generally finishes before the next one can begin. There is also typically a stage gate between each; for example, requirements must be reviewed and approved by the customer before design can begin.

Many organizations already have an internal project management methodology in place. Yet projects are failing. The common problem is that the methodology only works on 3 parameters, defines the old project three-time (time, price and quality).

This project simulation will show you the solution:

The new approach to project management is based on 6 measurable parameters.

We'll show you how to methodically manage projects across all key metrics:

  • Cost - Project Cost
  • Time - Project schedule
  • Scope - What we will realize
  • Quality - Requirement fulfillment
  • Benefits - Why we need this project
  • Risks - impacts on the project vs. their probability

Course objectives

  • Interactive course without theory, all applied in practice
  • We will show you how to effectively use the best practice of Agile and Waterfall
  • You will solve practical exercises that will best translate the theory into practice
  • You increase the project performance indicators (KPIs), the added value for the client
  • In elaborate scenarios, you will understand the roles and their dependencies according to the type of project

Perfektní složení účastníků. Neuvěřitelná schopnost lektora nás lehce popostrčit a zároveň nám dal dost prostoru se nad problémem potrápit. Do praxe nejpřínosnější kurz! I když metodiky jsou taky super, tak tohle mě v aplikační rovině hrozně moc posunulo. Oceňuji, že se kurz netýkal IT oblasti!
