Introduction & Welcome: Participants will be introduced to one other and to the format of the day. The event uses a group simulation run over three rounds throughout the day, allowing participants to apply what they are learning and immediately see the impact.
Round 1 - Simulation: This session covers the first run of the simulation. Each participant will have a part to play within the team. Allowing them to not only experience a dynamic, time driven project environment first hand, but also to potentially do so from a completely new perspective. During the course of the simulation participants will be encouraged to note down areas for personal and team improvement.
Round 1 - Debrief: Following round 1 of the simulation there will be debrief of lessons learned, particularly looking at - How objectives were set and communicated - How work was divided up and the need for defined roles and responsibilities - Lines of reporting - Personal and team performance in a fast moving project - Although the simulation will be used as the basis for discussion examples of similar situations will be drawn from the participant’s day-to-day work.
Round 2 - Preparation: Preparation for Round 2 will focus on looking at how work can be broken down, allocated to resources and schedule. Participants will be encouraged to use the techniques discussed to build on the lessons learned in Round 1, as well as considering how they could be applied back at work. Consideration will also be given to different approaches for estimating.
Round 2 - Simulation: The second 30-minute round of the simulation will be run, using the feedback from the first round and the improved planning of the preparation time.
Round 2 - Debrief: Following round 2 of the simulation there will be debrief of lessons learnt, particularly looking at - How the planning and preparation improved performance - The impact of unexpected events - The need to manage and communicate changes - Again examples will be drawn from the participant’s day-to-day work.
Round 3 - Preparation: Preparation for Round 3 will focus on looking at how we can identify and plan for uncertainty in a project. This will include looking at the degree to which risks can be reduced or removed from a project or encourage project opportunities. Consideration will also be given as to how to deal with potential changes to a project.
Round 3 - Simulation: The third 30-minute round of the simulation will be run, using the feedback from the first two rounds and the improved planning for change and uncertainty.
Round 3 - Debrief: Following round 3 of the simulation there will be debrief of lessons learned, particularly looking at how the consideration of change and uncertainty improved performance. Again examples will be drawn from the participant’s day-to-day work.
Implementing Key Ideas: Breaking into sub-groups the participants will consider what they believe are the key lessons they have personally learnt from the day. They will then present to the group those lessons, as well as practical ways in which they will implement them upon returning to work. This part of the event will also allow for the group to celebrate their achievements.
“I came over especially for the training with Go Courses. It was tailored perfectly – lots of hands on training in a great London facility just off Leadenhall Court. Thank you.”

“Great course, with some great content. Lots to take away and review, as well as some interesting insights from a very knowledgeable trainer. Will definitely look to attend further AWS training in the future.”
