When the stakes involve lives, livelihoods, public health, climate change, etc., the successful leadership of complex projects has never been more critical.
Organisations often articulate their approach to this challenge as…

Accordingly, project professionals need a wide range of skills; often technical skills, and certainly people management skills and good business awareness. (APM Body of Knowledge)
Prendo’s customers face many challenging situations when leading complex projects:
At Prendo, we believe that the complex skills and deep understanding that are needed for leading complex projects are best developed with advanced simulations that provide accelerated experiential learning and the opportunity to explore the underlying cause and effect models.Talk to us to understand if our simulations can address your specific challenges
To address the challenge of leading complex projects, leaders need a combination of skills (know-how) and understanding (know-that), in the same way that the driving test combines the practical and the theory:
