What the course will bring you

This is not a training! This is the Portfolio of Charles IV!

It is a serious game developed by us, a simulation of the simultaneous implementation of several projects (tasks, activities, product developments). You will get a non-transferable personal experience, an experience very close to reality.

The aim of the game is to experience different situations in which different professions participate within one organization and gradually work out with their own experience and invention to effectively set up cooperation.

The setting corresponds to a regular medium-sized company or part of a large corporation in which there are professional departments, whose members are variously involved in projects, development and other activities.

  • You will find out which procedures are appropriate and which ones to avoid.
  • You will know first-hand the dynamics of team development and cooperation between several teams.
  • You will understand how a self-organized and multidisciplinary (cross-functional) team works.
  • You will learn key principles and tools for business agility.

Course content

You will solve several important projects – the Portfolio of Charles IV, commissioned by the King himself. You will be transported to the 14th century – places and periods that you know well from the history and you will very quickly identify with the story.

Portfolio of Charles IV game

The participants are initially divided into several groups:

  • Builders,
  • Architects,
  • PM,
  • Teamsters,
  • Mayor of construction and his scribes.

Each group has its tasks, which should be performed during the implementation of several projects assigned by the coach, who acts as an agent and voice of Charles IV.

It is necessary to build the assigned works within a limited time limit, with a limited budget and according to a defined procedure.

How specifically depends on the participants themselves, who have 30 minutes to agree on a plan. Then the game time is started and the realization begins.

During the implementation, individual participants and the whole team have to deal with unexpected events, project changes, fluctuations in input prices, lack of resources, etc.

Finally, there is a detailed evaluation, retrospective and processing of lessons learned for use in everyday practice.
