DYNAMIC DISCOVERY LEARNING
FOR PROJECT TEAMS

In today’s highly competitive business environment—where time, money, and resources are in short supply—organizations are implementing more and more projects to manage critical activities and processes. Project teams, tasked with delivering high-quality, timely, and cost-effective results, face challenges like aggressive deadlines, scope creep, communication breakdowns, financial constraints, and more. It takes skilled project managers and knowledgeable and committed team members to face these challenges and achieve project success.

 

THE EXPERIENCE

Countdown®: A Strategy Game for Project Teams is a fast-paced, classroom-based simulation designed to improve the knowledge and skills of project team members. Developed by Paradigm Learning in collaboration with project management experts, Countdown uses a variety of discovery learning techniques to engage and energize learners as they explore the concepts, tools, techniques, and behaviors of effective project management.

JOB-RELEVANT
“CONNECTIONS EXERCISES”

Following the simulation, learners explore company-specific project management tools, processes, and resources and learn how to apply what they’ve learned in Countdown to their own project teams.
