Procept Associates and its partner GenXus Corporation are pleased to announce the release of a new self-directed online e-learning course called "Managing Large Project Teams: Modern Lessons from the Giza Pyramid Project." Developed by Dr. Mark Kozak-Holland, a world-renowned author, speaker, and researcher who investigates historical projects to extract lessons learned that can be applied in today's business scenarios.
During this course, participants will take on the role of the project manager for the construction of the Giza Pyramid. People commonly believe this project was delivered with a workforce made up primarily of slaves controlled through threats and violence; however, the latest archaeological research proves this to be not true. While some slaves were undoubtedly used, the bulk of the workforce was made up of craftsmen, farmers, and other skilled workers who were managed using rewards and other motivation techniques. Using the latest available archaeological evidence, the course puts learners into project simulations where they must make a complex series of decisions that could mean the difference between life and death for the workers and that illustrate key techniques in managing large workforces on complex projects that can be applied in modern projects..
