What has project management got to do with Egypt?
The ancient Egyptians built enormous structures in a relatively short timescale. This could not have been done without effective project management.
How did they get millions of stones to the right place and make sure that tens of thousands of people worked as efficiently and effectively as possible? Obviously this didn't just happen all by itself.
To complicate matters further, the process was continually subject to the changing demands of the Pharaoh; the weather; diseases; and wars.
How will you cope?
To engage in an undertaking as massive as building the pyramids, one needs to have the project management skills and instruments do deal with all of practical issues that arise - and to handle the Pharoah as well!
This interactive workshop will allow you to explore the most important aspects of best-practice project management actively, and interactively.
The building process for a pyramid will be simulated letting the participants experience the control elements of sound and effective project management.
During the building process, all participants will have a role within the project management environment. The project team is given the task of building the pyramid within a fixed timescale. The project will be affected by real-life events that actually occurred historically. During the building process there will be several reflection opportunities to learn from the Egyptians and from the team's own experience.
At the end of the project, when the pyramid has been built, there will be a project evaluation and all the learning discussed and documented.
