Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to run a PACTIO simulation workshop?
A PACTIO simulation workshop is typically run over a half day, but can be extended to a full day if an optional exercise in applying the methodology to a real case is included.
What is the role, mission and success measures in the PACTIO simulation?
You play the role of a project manager, who, in the early planning phase of a natural resources project, has been asked to figure out the exploitation plan, by working with a number of internal and external stakeholders in the project. Success is measured by the level of support obtained from the stakeholder group as a whole.
What are the limits on numbers of participants in a PACTIO simulation workshop?
We recommend that participants be organised in teams of 3 to 5 people, with a minimum of 3 teams and a maximum of 40 teams.
