Simulation is becoming more realistic with increased computing power. As a learning tool, simulation provides the next best thing to a real experience.  The presenters, both project management educators, teamed up to undertake an online project management simulator - men against a machine. The presentation will chronicle the process and outcomes, both within the simulation and the lessons learned as project managers and educators. Are these guys all talk, or can they come in under budget, on time, and within scope?
