BizFighter.EXE™ – The A&D Program Management Business Simulation!

A Program Management Course for the Aerospace and Defense Industry

Managing a Portfolio of Multi-Million Dollar Defense Contracts Takes Practice…

Do your PMs need to build their program management skills and better understand EACs, EVM, and program execution?

BizFighter.EXE helps participants decipher complex Estimate At Complete (EAC) and Earned Value Management (EVM) concepts and apply them in running simulated programs and a simulated A&D company.

Teams compete to manage development and production programs, set EACs, execute, and work to stay on-schedule and on-cost while beset with unexpected disruptors and challenges from engineering, suppliers, and customers!

BizFighter.EXE can be run as a live or virtual class over 2-4 days.

“The value of the BizFighter course is that it provided adult learners opportunity to gain experience in a simulated environment. Working within a team environment, under stress (time) factors to set strategy, analyze and act upon volumes of information, and then be able to see the impact on the income statement was the value of taking this course.”
