Q. What is Project R.E.A.L.?

A. Real Experience; Applied Learning. That’s R.E.A.L.! Our live training exemplifies exceptional professional development instruction for project practitioners. This advanced course expands on students’ previous learning and job experience in a robust, dynamic, and fast-paced environment using a hands-on, live project simulation.

Q. What Can I Expect from Live Simulation?  

A. You will take part in a full project life cycle playing multiple roles (PM, BA, QA, and Development), utilizing multiple methodologies, developing project artifacts, and completing tasks and deliverables of a real project.  You will actually fill various project roles, carry out the related responsibilities, and experience firsthand how they function in a project.  The workshop will prepare you to handle obstacles that can impede project success. You won’t just practice what you might do, you will experience it and actually do the work in an accelerated fashion.  This course will share real life success stories and failures that will help guide you through both the Project R.E.A.L. experience and back on the job.
