Hot Hour Experience


In 1998 a colleague and I were in a situation where we needed a teambuilding activity for a group we had worked with several times before. We knew precisely what the activity should focus on, but we had no exercise at our disposal, which could cover these areas.


We wanted to present the group with various tasks to create a picture of the everyday challenges related to strategy, planning, management, re-evaluation, skill development and much more. When we stumbled across various brain teasers from Binary Arts, the initial foundation for our new simulation game “Hot Hour Experience” was in place. Together with an equally challenging riddle, and a new way to use and combine the tasks, Hot Hour Experience became a reality.

The new simulation game was a big and immediate success, and as we have used it for subsequent development tasks, we have discovered its numerous potential applications. For example, the game makes it possible to see in practice the various elements associated with skill development, much more effectively than any other simulation game we have seen.


I hope you enjoy using or experience Hot Hour Experience … an engaging way to learn.
