“The course, aptly called Project R.E.A.L – Real Experience, Applied Learning is an advanced course designed specifically for Project Managers and Business Analysts which expands on delegates’ previous learning and job experience in a robust, dynamic, and fast paced environment using a hands-on, live project simulation Students take part in a full project life cycle playing multiple roles (PM, BA, QA and Development) and tackle multiple methodologies, core components of artefacts, tasks, and deliverables of a real project,” says Mould.
