They immediately see the consequences of the decisions they make. Furthermore, they track the evolution of the cash balance, the schedule, the strategic benefits indicators, and resource use.

Using SimulTrain® Strategic Management, trainees make all the mistakes while planning and executing a project portfolio and learn from these mistakes.
