Survival Simulations

When Human Synergistics introduced the Desert Survival Situation™ in 1970, our clients couldn’t get enough of this innovative team activity based on the concept of synergy – that people working together can achieve better results than they can individually.


We built on Desert’s success by developing a complete line of Survival Simulations. Next, we were among the first in the industry to offer Business Simulations: team-building exercises that also teach critical business-related skills. We recently added the Challenge Series of exercises which combine team building with learning opportunities around strategic planning, performance management, and other important organizational processes.

Our Team Simulations are designed to:

  • Teach the interpersonal (people) and rational (task) behaviors involved in successful teamwork
  • Demonstrate the impact of constructive group styles on performance
  • Improve group problem-solving skills and decision-making effectiveness
  • Strengthen cooperation and communication among group member
