LAING O'ROURKE 2013
Laing O'Rourke used ENGINUITY on their 3-year Graduate
Development Programme. The competition formed the basis of the module "Leading a Business",
and enabled the graduates to put 'theory into practice' by experiencing running a construction
contracting business in a 'safe', but challenging and competitive simulated environment.
The participants were split into 8 'balanced' teams comprising of people involved in engineering,
commercial and construction management roles. They competed for 4 rounds against computer-simulated companies,
and then a further 4 rounds 'head to head' against each other. The module took place over 3 days from Monday
February 27th until Wednesday February 29th at the company's Head Office in Dartford.
