Project Management: Why playing our game can be a more beneficial route

Project Managers are in demand in the UK and around the world, more so now than ever. Training to be a Project Manager is not always straightforward as you either need to climb the ranks, do a degree in Management, get many many years of experience within one industry or sit through a conventional eLearning course. Granted, getting practical experience is vital and this should be something anyone who wants to pursue a career in Project Management does as the theory side of things won’t teach you everything.

But have you considered an alternative way to learn about Project Management and develop the necessary soft skills for the job? We have at Totem Learning. Our serious games, notably Unlock: Project Management, have done incredibly well at teaching people these skills in an engaging and beneficial way. We trialled the game at the University of Liverpool within a Msc class studying Programming with Management. The result were phenomenal and the pass rate rose to 100% as a direct result of using this game. It is one of our best-selling games and it has proven to also generate ROI which is something all companies are desperate for. If you’re going to invest in any software to develop the skills of employees or help them with their own ambitions, practical training partnered with our Unlock: Project Management game is the way to go!
