What is Management 3.0?
Management 3.0 is a series of leadership and team collaboration workshops, a book, and an international movement. It is the belief that management is too important to be left to the managers, and that everyone together can improve work-life, employee empowerment, and results. It is a belief that more can be learned in half an hour of a game than a month of meetings. Here you can learn all about Management 3.0
and its methods
Will Management 3.0 make me a better leader?
No. That’s all on you. Don’t think you can walk out of a course or read one of our books and you will suddenly know it all. YOU have to do it. Everything we do with Management 3.0 is to give you employe engagement exercises and games that you can try with your team right away. With everything you ask yourself, “What can I do tomorrow?” We are very much about the practical – so your success as a leader comes from you putting our best practices into practice.
Can I call you? I have a question about something.

Questions on Management 3.0 Workshops
When will Management 3.0 come to my country?
The spirit of Management 3.0 is everywhere, any time someone is trying to influence positive change in their organization, and the in-person Management 3.0 workshops are already in more than 130 countries. Here is the list of upcoming workshops
run by our more than 430 fabulous facilitators. If you don’t see one where
you want it, simply fill in the request form and we will have a local facilitator contact you or you can pick a facilitator

which will let you also access a facilitators’ license, allowing you to be the first to bring Management 3.0 to your area.
Can I have a special Management 3.0 Workshop at my office? Do you offer private on-site trainings?
Absolutely! It’s best to start with where you want to hold the workshop and look for a facilitator
that gives workshops in that area. (Many are happy to travel.) Facilitators are happy to adapt workshops for each group’s needs.
How much do these workshops cost? What happens if a workshop is cancelled?
Organization of the Management 3.0 workshops is decentralized and each Management 3.0 facilitator runs things his or her own way. Please contact your facilitator directly for any terms, conditions, location, pricing, scheduling changes or cancellations.
Do Management 3.0 workshops qualify for PMI PDUs or PMI-ACP credits?
In a nutshell, yes. All workshop hours qualify for both the Project Management Institute’s traditional project development units, usually called PMI PDUs, and for the PMI agile certified practitioner credits, usually called PMI-ACP credits. You should contact PMI directly for specific certification.

Questions on Management 3.0 Facilitators
Who are the Management 3.0 Facilitators?
They are hundreds of men and women around the world. They are people just like you who wanted to be change agents within their organizations, so they took the Management 3.0 course or tested the Management 3.0 practices on their teams. They influenced change in their own organizations by using some of the Management 3.0 best practices and games. For many of them, Management 3.0 is one of many trainings they offer, often including businesses coaches, agile coaches, lean coaches, corporate culture coaches and more. They are a diverse group of licensed facilitators, but they certainly share a passion for improving businesses and lives, knowing the two usually go together. Meet the Facilitators here

Questions on Certificate of Practice
Can I submit articles in Spanish?
No, unfortunately, you can’t. We only accept articles written in English. The reason is that we don’t speak all different languages like Spanish, German or Portuguese and it would be unfair to accept some languages and others not.
Do I have to publish articles online?
Yes, your articles must be published online and publicly available. Articles on your Google Drive or Dropbox are not accepted.

Can I resell games?
The short answer is no. Official Management 3.0 Facilitators are allowed to print the original materials that we provide to them via private share for being used in their workshop. Everyone else can download the materials provided on this website. You are free to print them in any way you like, as long as you don’t resell them and don’t change the design.
Can I reproduce the games?
People ask us regularly whether they can reuse our game materials and print their own logos on them. The short answer is, “No”. The long answer is: there is copyright on our illustrations, designs, and texts. And we insist on those copyrights because we’ve seen some very bad and low-quality reproductions. You can print the products that we have available via our website, without permission. You can even use them in workshops. For us, it is only important that nobody mistakes any self-made copies for the official Management 3.0 materials.
Questions on our Web Shop
Can I get a discount for large orders?
We sell our products to help people use Management 3.0 practices in their organizations. Therefore, we decided to make no profit on our products. And therefore, we can’t give you any discounts. Sorry.
Can I make an order via email and get an invoice afterwards?
No, we don’t do manual processing of orders, invoices, and payments. All orders should take place via the web shop because everything is automated.
Can I make a payment via bank?
No, we don’t take bank payments at this time. We only support Stripe, which in turns supports credit cards and PayPal.
Can I order games in another language?
No, we only have the English versions in the shop. However, you can download the games in your own language via our website.
Can I order books?
No, we only have games. Books can be bought via your local book store or for example Amazon.
Can you do priority shipping?
No, we tried this in the past and it didn’t work out well. First of all, it is not part of our automated process. Therefore, we have to take all the steps manually, and basically stop the automated process. This can have an impact on orders from other customers.
Secondly, and this more even more important, even with priority shipping orders were delivered too late! Resulting in disappointed customers, and some even angry at us!
Therefore, we decided not to do priority shipping anymore.
I didn’t receive an invoice. Can you send it?
As soon as you order something, you receive an email. This email is an official invoice and contains all the information required on an invoice. Please look up the confirmation email.
