Harmonia - A Medieval Management Game
Welcome to the Kingdom of Harmonia! Step back into medieval times where a small, but growing kingdom desperately needs your guidance and wisdom. Every decision you make will determine whether you prosper and thrive, and hopefully ward off an attack by the aggressive neighboring kingdom, Nexdoria.
Each section of the kingdom is called a duchy and is run by a council of 5-6 team members who must make decisions to bring wealth into the kingdom, balance the needs of the king and the peasants, build up defenses, and possibly even enhance the quality of life with festivals, a hospital, and a university.
Expect the unexpected as your kingdom weathers the triumphs, trials, and tribulations of this exciting time period. You never know what friend or foe will venture into the kingdom next. How will your team react?
Ironically, Harmonia takes you to the past while embracing the latest technology. Each team is equipped with their own laptop and real-time results are visible on the screen at the front of the room. This activity can take place in a single conference room or from remote locations simultaneously all over the world. Imagine being able to connect all of your remote teams in one cohesive team building event without having to fly people from A to B. Everything that all of your remote teams do is instantly synched to the group to provide real-time results for maximum connection.
This exercise isn’t all jesters and jousting - Harmonia is packed with serious fun!
The program ends with a 45-minute debrief that addresses how your team balanced the following:
- The needs of staff versus organizational objectives
- The focus on culture versus results
- Team or departmental goals versus organizational objectives
- Short-term versus long-term results
- Internal competition versus external threats
- The needs of management versus staff
- Rewarding individual contribution versus teamwork
This is truly a one-of-a-kind event that will become part of your team’s legacy.
What kind of mark will you leave on history?
