An ECITB Project Management based learning event that will give each participant experience in:

  • Managing a project from inception to completion
  • Negotiation of claims
  • Resolution of disputes
  • Highly time-pressured teamwork
  • Project management techniques
  • Behavioural aspects
  • IT
  • Change management

The competition is based on a computer simulation and runs from 28 – 30 June 2019. The task is to manage a project, from inception to completion. Teams of five members operate independently although individual team actions impinge on the outcomes of the other team’s decisions. The winning team is judged to be the one making the most profit against their initial bid price and, in the judgement of the adjudicators, pays most heed to and operates in accordance with the ACTIVE Principles.

Participants manage a fixed price construction project, financed by negotiated loan capital, on behalf of an external client. There are significant opportunities for teams to engage in the negotiations of claims for client driven scope changes, and in the resolution of disputes. The exercise is highly time-pressured.
