Concours KGP Case Competition is Project Management themed case competition. This was a one-day event that was held on November 5th, 2022. The case given to the participants was regarding various projects the Quebec government is working on to be at the forefront of EV battery production and recycling. The timeline was broken into 2018, 2021, 2024 and 2027 (for the final round). The aim was to address stakeholder engagement and management, risk management and establish minimum project acceptance criteria.

The teams were given a 16-page case which was to be solved and presented in under 2 hours. In the final, a three-pager addition to the first case was given and the teams were asked to prepare their presentation in 1 hour. MBA CCC facilitated a workshop with the coach Emad Naeemi for the team before the competition.

The JMSB team was announced as the winner of the competition. And Laura won the Star Award and the Desjardins Jury’s Favourite Award.

2021 Teams



Congratulations to both teams from JMSB for the spectacular show at the KGP Case Comp organized by PMI Montreal (Project Management Institute)
KGP is an inter-university contest of case resolution in project management. This is the largest project management competition in Eastern Canada. The mandate this year was to implement distribution and ordering IT system for warehouse and order processing. The team felt that this was a great learning experience, since it reflected a lot of the real-time problems in project management, just consolidated into one case.
JMSB’s performance and team attitude proves that you don’t need to win the competition to win as a team. Each presentation is just another opportunity to compete, experience, learn and grow!
Great job JMSB! The CCC is proud of all the work you put in and of your overall performance!
