At this meeting, PMI/NJ Chapter members
were immersed in a real project environment with the aid of a computer
simulation. You were reminded, possibly, of the hands-on project management
work you thought you'd left behind that afternoon in your office! Unlike
real life you had the chance to stop and reflect (with your dinner table's
fellow practitioners) on what may work while executing the project and
what may not. You learned from your mistakes and successes and from the
shared decision-making behind your chosen actions to "right" the key metrics
of the evening's PM opportunity. There was immediate confirmation of action
taken, of impact upon cost, schedule and quality, and more!
