Masterminds - Decision Making in Complex Environments using Serious Games

The Port of Rotterdam aims to transfer the knowledge of experienced planners in the port to younger generations through new technologies.

The decisions that employees make, based on years of experience, are complex; they are the result of a combination of many factors. Passing this knowledge on to younger colleagues is no easy task and is very time consuming. In this project, we aim to use serious gaming to analyse how these complex decisions are made. If this decision-making can be captured in models, we can translate this into serious games. This can then be used to educate and train new employees in an attractive and efficient manner.

This project has been made possible by the Regio Deal Midden- en West-Brabant. For more information, please visit or
