A proven, powerful and flexible tool for team building events, leadership training, retreats, management training and organizational development training.

"Dig where the gold is, unless you are just looking for exercise."

"Dutchman" is a fun team-building simulation that focuses on themes of leadership, planning and communications. Used world-wide, this is the most effective and engaging inter-team collaboration exercise around.

Dutchman is a powerful and proven team building event that plays with organizations of all kinds. Feedback from sessions is extremely good due to the energy the play creates, a solid instructional design, and its outstanding debriefing qualities. Players leave with tangible ideas for better communications, improved teamwork and ideas for leadership.

The setting is modern-day Southwestern United States in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. Outfitted in Cowboy hats and colorful bandanas, teams go on a search for gold from the famous Lost Dutchman's Mine, first discovered by Jacob Waltz in the 1860s and lost since he died in 1892.

The exercise focuses on inter-table collaboration as its main outcome. It also links to issues of quality, leadership, systems, communications and a variety of other organizational issues. Team size is 5 or 6 people and there is no limit to the number of participants.

This exercise is truly outstanding for a highly interactive morning or afternoon event. In 3 to 4 hours, participants get to play and then fully debrief the event and discuss real opportunities for improvement. It functions very well as a full-day program within a conference or as a specific training event on team building, leadership and collaboration. Many organizations use it in multi-day training and leadership development programs.

Choose from among 2 versions: 3-team, or 4-team. The 3-team version comes with a license to use this for up to 3 tables of up to 6 people each. The 4-team version comes with a license to use this for up to 4 tables of up to 6 people each. There is no limit to the number of times you can use this exercise.

The exercise is CD-based and contains everything necessary to run the exercise: facilitator's guide and instructions, presentation materials in PowerPoint, debriefing outline and questions, etc. You also receive a complete set of ready-to-use Team Materials that include laminated forms for team packs, resource cards, grub stake envelopes, poster maps, and toy trinkets for tabletop fun.
