Mir 91

simulation of a space mission


  • Acquiring the ability to plan and prioritise projects
  • Understanding the key aspects of integrating plans between teams
  • Finding ways to work together to solve problems
  • Learning about project work planning tools (kanban)
  • Discovering opportunities to build synergies between teams (so-called silos)

In the course of the simulation, we move to the Mir space station. Our goal is to complete as many of the tasks that make up the mission as possible. Our work is part of the first international space programme. One of the main challenges is to reconcile cultural and technical differences between teams coming from different countries.

The simulation allows us to experience the process of planning joint work, integrating the team and completing tasks over time. Participants search for the best solutions during the activity and confirm their effectiveness during debriefing. The scenario focuses on collaboration between participants to achieve the best result. Everyone stays in the same virtual space and moves around the station via a smartphone app. The simulation can be adapted to the needs of the group and the business context. MIR 91 can be used to work with a wide range of phenomena related to group planning and organisation.


Introduction to simulation

Blaze Goraj

Project Team Advisor

Twenty years ago I started with a small start-up but was quickly drawn into Fortune500 giants such as Hewlett-Packard and Mondelez International.

The key to gaining experience was diversity: from help-desk system implementation projects, to leading organisational change, creating animated films for children and transforming a shared service centre for a bank. Every project problem I had to solve cost me one hair off my head.

I have discovered that the best project teams have four powers: vision, people, tools and results. I help clients develop these powers by providing original training and project consultancy.



Through gamification, he not only deepened our communication, but also our understanding of the team’s idiosyncrasies, strengths and weaknesses

Highly informative workshop and despite the long time spent in front of the monitor it was well worth it – very attractive !!! 🙂

Blaze is a professional, energetic and inspiring Trainer. He provided us with a lot of concrete knowledge, useful in our work (!) in a short time. The material was worked through during games and very life-like exercises. He is able to listen, has a wide knowledge and interesting experiences from other companies. I would definitely recommend working with him!

– Agnieszka Żak-Stechlińska

Interesting training, multidimensional presentation of the subject matter, wide range of knowledge of the trainer, open atmosphere maintained throughout the training.

– Karolina Łańska-Hejza

Training delivered in the form of engaging projects and tasks (interactive game), from which we draw our own conclusions under the guidance of a great mentor.
