This first lesson plan introduces students to foundational concepts of Project Management in a fun and interesting way. Their task is to work as a team, in phases, to build the tallest tower out of provided household goods. There are certain rules, or constraints placed on them during this exercise (as is the case with any project) that will impact their success. Upon completion of this activity, the instructor will be able to demonstrate that all 5 phases of project management were covered in the exercise as well as accentuate key project management concepts (i.e. risk management, resources, constraints, etc.) that will continue to be used throughout the course.
