The key was to look out for the most efficient workers and not overwork the remaining. You also want to look at the key tasks that are predecessors for other tasks and assign the fast employees to those tasks. Look for tasks that have no dependencies and assign the slow and inexpensive workers to those (to cut costs).

I am guilty of playing this more than the required times. This was such a fun learning activity. I really like the chance option. It gave me time to think and evaluate how to proceed. I had a couple of staff burnouts but rarely and over budget so I guess I am the worst manager so far. Hopefully my employees don't quit on me haha. Lastly, I support what Simi mentioned above, the trick is to know predecessors and key tasks.
First round- Budget $896000, Actual Cost- 804K, Burnout from Bob and Rudy, completed on time
Second Round- Budget 950k, Finished at 736k no staff burnout and completed on time
Third round Budget 875k budget 648k completed on time and personal best

Interesting game on how to manage projects effectively. The skill is not to overwork employees and to assign tasks according to capability. It's also important to keep an eye on the budget as you assign tasks.

The game reminds me of Sudoku. You need to distribute responsibilities among the team members in such a way that you use everyone and at the same time no member is over worked.
