The participants are divided into groups and work on a fictitious project throughout the training, which is usually appreciated by the participants when you end up with other people from different companies. Although the participants’ own activities, questions and possible problems form a basis for discussions and exercises, there are often examples from different industries in order to lay the foundation for a better result.
