Description

Innovation Games: How to Play Your Way to Being Better

Research shows that we are hard-wired to express ourselves and interact with others through play – even on the job. Groups that engage in serious play at work are more collaborative, more innovative, and more productive. A “learn by doing” model of instruction ensures that participants will pick up concepts quickly and be able to put them into practice right away. Play can help you solve problems.

At this event you will:

  • Discover how to plan, play, and post-process in-person Innovation Games from Luke Hahmann’s book, “Innovation Games: Creating Breakthrough Products Through Collaborative Play.”
  • Learn the skills needed to implement game techniques within your organization, whether with customers or partners.
  • Practice facilitating games and overcoming challenging personalities through example sharing, tips, and tricks.
  • Begin to build an action plan utilizing games to help you solve a challenge you currently are working through at work.

Presenter:

Mandy Webber since March 2017 has been director of Innovation at NewBoCo.
