”Training simulations for ‘learning to be a project leader’ and ‘learning to do real project work’ have proven their appeal for all types of organizations. The new partnership arose to fulfill a need in the marketplace from increased pressure on organizations to provide significantly better, more cost-effective and valuable learning programs,” said Lawrence Suda.
PMForum CEO David Pells commented, “Palatine Group has provided leadership in private and government sector simulation development efforts through their outstanding successful design practice. Adding the Palatine Group simulation design and development talents to PMForum will create a powerful global force in the project management training industry. Palatine Group has over thirty years experience in designing and developing project simulations for training and has an outstanding client base in the USA.”
Pells noted that the Palatine team understands the actions and overall systems necessary for successful development of the project management simulations for teaching project management. In turn, Lawrence Suda recognizes that PMForum has the project management acumen and an international network of skilled practitioners to maintain a high level of fidelity and provide marketing and support to a global client base.
The alliance between a proven project management network development firm and a seasoned designer and thinker of project management simulations promises to be fruitful for the project management educational industry because both parties believe in practicing what they preach. PMForum has recently created a PMForum Partner Program to bring the best educational opportunities to the marketplace. The Palatine Group simulations have been used for such world class organizations as: NASA, Department of Defense, General Electric, Lockheed-Martin, Hewlett Packard, General Motors, Merck and many other world class organizations.
PMForum and Palatine share common values in bringing world class talent and the best training designs to organizations, and the goal of expanding these programs globally through PMForum Associates. For more information, visit http://www.pmforum.org/
