Project Management

The ECITB Project Management Competition

Successfully demonstrating ACTIVE Principles for 20 years

(Achieving Competitiveness Through Innovation and Value Enhancement)

Competition structure

The ECITB Project Management competition is a highly successful and rewarding competition-based learning event in project management. The event is run together with Cranfield University School of Management. The competition is for teams from employer organisations. Teams of 5 people manage a simulated fixed price construction project from inception to completion, financed by negotiated loan capital on behalf of an external client.

The competition is aimed at project management practitioners, team members and support / service staff, e.g. HR and accounts personnel who interface with, and provide services to project teams.

There are significant opportunities for teams to engage in the negotiation of claims for client-driven scope changes and in the resolution of disputes.The exercise is highly time-pressured, enjoyable and rewarding.

The event commences with a series of short project management tutorials on the Friday morning. After lunch, teams finalise execution plans and profit estimates prior to the simulation commencing.

The ECITB will pay for the tutoring fees and cost of entry for each team. The employer is responsible for other costs including travel and accommodation for the team members. Please contact your Regional Account Manager for funding approval.
