Where can I buy The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine? Directly from us or from one of our users. And you can find a Press Release about our 30 years of global experience selling and delivering programs with the exercise here.
Performance Management Company is the designer and main distributor of the team building simulation, The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine. We started using the exercise in 1993 and decided to package and sell very usable designs of this game without the normally required certification or annual licenses or per-participant fees.
Users would buy the exercise at a one-time coast, receive the delivery and training information in powerpoint, pdf and other common formats and access as much free support as they desired. Over the 26 years of distribution, we have packaged the training and support information so that very few questions are directed our way.
(I miss many of those conversations and even the people who promise to call me after a purchase generally never call! I can name names, but I won’t…)
Performance Management Company was started in 1984 by Dr. Scott Simmerman and Joan Simmerman. PMC was initially a training and consulting firm focused on people and performance, with customer service quality being a driving theme. You can read a good deal of the biography and details at this link on LinkedIn. We became a home-based business back in 1998, the same year that we started our initial website, www.squarewheels.com.
PMC has been supported technically by our son-in-law, Chris Fisher, who operates the websites and fixes all sorts of technical issues that Scott and Joan generate when doing blogs, designing websites, doing security, and fixing emails and dealing with hosting problems.
More recently, Jeff Simmerman has joined the business to help develop both versions of the exercise, the board game and the virtual one.
Jeff’s responsibilities have been around the redesign of the old Seven Seas Quest team building exercise to design a brand new game, Quest, with a Dutchman-like interface and a focus on what we call Dis-Un-Engagement or Disruptive Involvement. That game is in final design stages and we do not even have a web page for it yet, but Jeff has completed the delivery materials and is working with the printer to make it available very soon. He has also worked up and embellished Scott’s design of Buccaneer.
You can find prices for our various onsite, in-person Dutchman games by clicking on the image link below:
which shows our four different versions of the Dutchman game for 3, 4, 6 and unlimited numbers of tabletops.
You can find solid information on the RENTAL version of the exercise on our website, also. This is a great option for your one-off large team building events.
For the FUN of It!

The exercise has many links to the themes of trust (within and between teams) with a strong focus on trust in the leadership and on collaboration between the teams. This is THE world-class exercise anchored to these elements, based on three decades of client feedback.
