Search for the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine
"Dutchman" is a team building simulation that has entertained and enlightened participants worldwide. It is a powerful and proven team-building event that plays with organizations of all kinds.
setting is modern-day Southwestern United States in the Superstition
Mountains of Arizona.
The exercise focuses on 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. We've successfully delivered sessions for groups of 8 and groups of 600, from 11-year olds at a YMCA to top managers at multinational corporations to shop floor personnel in manufacturing plants to executive secretaries at international conferences.
It's outstanding for a highly interactive morning or
afternoon event. In 3.5 to 4 hours, the group gets 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.
