CPM™ is a Collaborative Project Management Simulation Game which allows participants to take a people-centric approach to project management by viewing any Project as a set of Goals and a set of stakeholders or communities who can either help or hinder the achievement of these goals. The participants must confront the central dilemma of how much of their efforts and resources should go into  trying to achieve the project goals through direct action versus trying to achieve the project goals indirectly by spending effort and resources engaging the key stakeholders/communities. CPM has been described as “Project Management as if people mattered!
