PERT: Issues Identification and Action Planning™

The activity also mimics a ‘showing of interest’ NLRB hearing, during which signed cards are counted, and a description of how easy it is for organizers to acquire signed cards, as well as some of the tactics they use to acquire them.

The PML Case Study™ reveals specific strategies that will win or lose votes during a union campaign within the fictitious company. The key learning includes the impact of management actions made during the case study on votes in the simulated campaign to expose the consequences on votes of those actions.
