Why Choose our Products?
Performance Management Company has been selling its products since 1993 to a global mix of organizations as well as hundreds of small businesses, schools/universities, health organizations and independent consultants who have found the products to be a great return on investment as they receive high marks for participant satisfaction, engagement, uniqueness, flexibility, ease of use and a successful outcome.
The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine-Onsite and our Square Wheels Toolkits are each a one-time purchase with limitless use and no further fees paid to us. The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine-Online is set up in a different way that uses per-participant fees but there is no limit as to how often you would have access to this virtual game.
Our commitment is to continue to create tools that will be useful, impactful, engaging and reasonably priced in the global marketplace. Collaboration is our driving force and we are open to any suggestions, criticisms, innovations, ideas or possibilities that may exist. We stand behind our products with a money-back guarantee and the satisfaction of thousands of appreciative users and participants who have experienced our products.
The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine-Onsite team building game has support materials that are not downloadable and, therefore, will be shipped to you but we will send you the leader’s files electronically so that you can quickly become familiar with the play of the exercise even before receiving the supporting materials.
If you need your purchase by a certain timeline, we will do our best to make that happen.
The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine-Onsite team building game requires the purchase of tokens for each participant and then can be used at your discretion.

Denise Fera Science North, Canada
Just wanted to let you know we delivered this yesterday at our annual recharge. It was fabulous! Interactive, fun, insightful and lots of learning…that’s part of our brand at Science North so a perfect fit. Debrief was “awesome” and fit so well as we prepare to launch our new strategic plan which has as one of its key priorities an “Awesome Organizational Culture” goal. Great team building tool; well worth the investment. I can’t think of a better way to have kicked off our re-charge!
