Simulation Training in Project Management and IT Service Management
Highly interactive and experiential, IIL's simulation training integrates proven learning theory with leading-edge computer technology and game-based simulation techniques to deliver lasting benefits. Simulation is a high-impact, energetic and fun way to accelerate understanding, involvement and acceptance of best practices within an organization.
In addition offering stand-alone simulation training courses in project management (PoleStar™ PM Simulation) and Information Technology Service Management (PoleStar™ ITSM Simulation), rounds of simulation can be incorporated into many of the courses that we deliver to companies onsite.

What Makes Simulation Training So Effective?
IIL's simulation training centers around PoleStar, a fictional company in the fast-paced world of global online retail. Our PoleStar simulations bring to life the project-based behavioral and process issues faced by organizations. Normally delivered over a series of rounds, the PoleStar PM simulation introduces key project management/ITSM components using highly-interactive gaming dynamics. Progressing through the rounds, project delivery improves via the successful application of tools and techniques, which are introduced and explained at key points in the participants' learning cycle.
The ability to display real business performance improvement as a direct result of better project performance is a distinguishing feature of the PoleStar simulations. As participants progress through the rounds, they witness the actual impact of their actions on the fictional business they are supporting. So not only do participants learn to use project management/ITSM tools and techniques, they recognize their value and are more motivated to apply what they have learned.
