What do you need for a session
In this page, you can find information about what you need to host a session: face to face sessions or online.
Face to face sessions
For a face-to-face session you will obviously need a room where all your participants will be able to join confortably. Confort is important since a MSP Challenge session should last at least 3 to 4 hours. Ideally you should plan for a whole day for this activity. You should limit your participats to a minumum of 10 and a maximum of 30.
You will need one computer for each 2 to 3 persons. We found that an optimal number of participants per computer is 2 or 3, a 4th participant might have trouble seing the screen or take active part in the discussion.
With one computer per 2/3 persons and a maximum of 30 participants, you will need 11 computers (10 for the participants and 1 as the server), be prepared and bring extension cords (and possibly adaptors if you go to a country that uses different electricity plugs than yours). Of course you will need to have the client installed in the participants' computers and the server+client combi installed in the server computer that you will be operating.
For ease of use, make sure each laptop has a mouse (drawing with a touchpad or touch screen might be more difficult).
It is usefull to have a big screen where you can show the plans made, the KPIs, etc, to engage the participants in the discussion between eras and after simulation runs.
