Project Master

A project on water

A business game for project management


Playfully master practice

Project.Master is an interactive business game that requires project teams to build a real boat with a steam engine. The participants analyze the task in their group and then formulate a successful project launch in a kickoff workshop. Using modern project management tools, they analyze the project environment – taking into account all the stakeholders. They also devise a work breakdown structure and define the project goals. Practical controlling instruments are used during the building of the boat to maintain oversight of the project’s progress. The finished boat and the project performance are evaluated in-depth, and the potential for future improvement is identified.
