LAING O'ROURKE 2014
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 graduates were split into 8 'balanced' teams comprising of people involved in engineering,
commercial and construction management roles. They competing 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 Tuesday February 25th until Thursday February 27th at the
company's Head Office in Dartford.
