SimulTrain®

SimulTrain®

SimulTrain® is a multimedia project management simulation which allows the trainees to experience – within a few hours – typical situations and challenges encountered in most projects.

Various multimedia-driven interactions create a stressful but realistic project environment

An opportunity for practicing (not only planning) and execute a project

Integrated feedbacks allow learning from their own mistakes

Simultrain integrates all factors of project management, including the human factor

For years, we have successfully integrated SimulTrain® by STS into our Master's in Project Management program. This dynamic and versatile tool, as an online project management simulator, transforms the learning experience with its realistic and fast-paced environment for acquiring essential competencies. By immersing participants in the role of a project manager, it actively fosters teamwork and leadership skills. The effectiveness of SimulTrain® is evident in exposing students to real-world projects, enabling decision-making under pressure, and facilitating impactful reviews—all without career implications. Undoubtedly, it has contributed to improving our learning methodology and increasing our students' satisfaction

Delivery

Languages

SimulTrain® is available in more than 20 languages.

Delivery and duration

SimulTrain® is an instructor-led serious game – “played” in an on-site or virtual classroom with groups of 3-4 people

The simulation lasts for about 7 hours including the phases of planning, execution, and debriefing. In most cases, the simulation is split into two parts over two days and combined with other learning activities such as company-specific case studies.

Introduction for trainers
