Evidence Experiential learning in Project Management

Traditional learning, which


tends to encompass only the
top 2 elements of the
learning pyramid and hence
has long term retention rates
of just 5-10%.

Experiential
learning
effectively encapsulates all
areas of the pyramid
which is why the retention

Business is Doing - so is Project Management. And the best way to


accelerate understanding of Project Management is to experience and do it.

Key Benefits of PlayJect

1.

PlayJect works on the principles of Gamification, Discovery


Learning and Experiential Learning

2.

Traditional Learning is good for group education and not


customizable for the needs of each individual. PlayJect overcomes

this drawback.

3.

Traditional Learning does not allow feedback on the actual learning


of the individual, which is an important metric for organizations to
understand the return on their training $. PlayJect provides this data.
