Gamification Storyline:

In this Serious Business Game, you and your employees train how to analyze problems properly and then make the best possible decisions using the right methods, such as decision trees and solution matrices. Take on the role of the main protagonist, James, as a professional manager. James is a young man who just learned he inherited his family’s small hotel in Key West, Florida. However, James currently lives in Chicago as a successful hotel manager. There, he has built a prosperous life for himself. His grandmother Rose wants him to take over the family hotel as the new manager and continue running it. He would prefer to sell the hotel immediately and continue living in Chicago. In order to make the right decisions and validate rational solutions, he finds appropriate, methodical guidance in his mother’s diary to carefully analyze each set of problems and find a fitting solution in each case.


When a massive hurricane makes landfall, James will be forced to react, take action, and start making decisions. Only then will he be able to save the hotel and its guests.


Improve your decision method portfolio. Discover that the first solution is not always the best one.
