Hands-on work
- CONCERTO Micro-project: This is a multi-projects environment to model the operation of a company and to exempt a rich teaching through an enterprise game. The workshop proposes a simulation of a company organised by projects. Three teams symbolizing the departments of a company must each one carry out some concrete tasks representing the projects. Each participant is, in turn, pilot of a wallet of projects and is charged, with his team to take into account a framework of constraints (objectives, means, time...), to steer the projects of its department. Meetings of projects team and the steering committee allows coordinating actions at various levels. - Synergic exercises: these exercises make it possible to evaluate the attitudes, values, motivations and points of view, at personal level and in teamwork. - Diagnosis exercises: these exercises make it possible to be on a behaviours scale, values or psychological typology. - Case studies: they describe a real context which it is necessary to analyse in order to propose adapted solutions. - Problems solving: this analysis, carried out in group, makes it possible to qualify the problems and to implement a cause / effect study.
