Assuming the roles of project management consultants, participants form small groups to work on planning a project. The training projects are drawn from their own professional practice and are selected at the beginning of the specialization. This "learning-on-the-project" approach provides participants with a testing ground for the theories, concepts and methods discussed in the course of the program.
