riva seminars are quite unique in as much as participants take centre stage, contributing their individual skills and capabilities. Their knowledge and experience, coupled with our trainers’ expertise, lead to an intensive and long-lasting learning experience. Our simulation game-based seminars are interactive and convey even highly complex matter hands-on.

Simulation games

riva simulation games cover a multitude of business management and psychological subjects: From the foundation of an enterprise to the management of a production plant, from project management to handling profound changes within an organisation. Specialised solutions for the insurance sector complete our offer.


We are happy to provide advice on how to optimally integrate simulation games into human resources development and on using the games approach in your organisation’s training and qualification programmes. We also offer individual coaching to prepare managers for imminent career steps whereby emphasis can be put on professional or personal issues.

The SysTeams series of simulation games deals with business management and psychological issues: SysTeamsRybi teaches and structures innovation and business start-up processes. SysTeamsBusiness simulates a production plant in all its facets from procurement to corporate finance. SysTeamsProject allows you to acquire professional and method competence in project management and soft skills in project team development. Our simulation game SysTeamsChange addresses the management and supervision of change processes and completes our offer.

Insurance related topics are covered by our IRIS series of simulation games: IRIS Insurance Game and IRIS Insurance Game Life simulate an insurance market with five property/casualty or life insurers respectively. Slipping into the role of a CEO seminar participants manage their companies and decide on marketing and sales activities, investments, asset and risk management. IRIS Insurance Game+ puts special emphasis on risk modelling and reinsurance.
