“Prendo’s simulations bring to life just the sort of ambiguous decisions that students face when they get back to the real world. The simulations are a brilliant way of compressing a whole project experience into a few hours, so it’s a very valuable use of the precious classroom time.”

Dr Efrosyni Konstantinou, Director of MSc SMP, UCL

“While case studies offer valuable insight, today’s MBA students are seeking a little more. They don’t just want to discuss, they want to do, and that’s where simulations come in. They allow students to participate, make decisions, and get feedback on those decisions.”

Nigel Pye, Professor & MBA Director, Essex Business School

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to run a Spatium simulation workshop?
A Spatium simulation workshop is typically run over a full day, but can be extended to a day and a half.
What is the role, mission and success measures in the Spatium simulation?
You play the role of a project manager, who, in the context of a project to build a football stadium, has been asked to ‘ensure the success of the project’. Success is measured with both the traditional time, cost and quality outcomes, but also by the business model outcomes and the level of support obtained from the key stakeholders.
What are the limits on numbers of participants in a Spatium 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.
