This is a joint NCPMI Higher Education CoP and Duke Project Management CoP event
In this session participants will complete a simple team assignment with restrictions that highlight the challenges of communication, collaboration, and coordinating stakeholders. Participants will build a structure out of Legos that must conform to design specifications and use available materials. All participants must operate within the limits of their defined roles and in the available time. After completing the exercise, we will debrief the experience as a group, discussing topics such as observed behaviors, unexpected challenges, and how team members collectively organize and solve problems. The activity mimics many workplace challenges common to project management.
