Gamestorming

The future of work is not about dull routine… it's about being more human.

 

Gamestorming is a set of best practices compiled from the world's most innovative people and companies, condensed into a lightweight, low-tech toolkit that applies tools and rules to the problems of collaboration and teamwork.

Love it! Explains why our top secret management tool, MBSN is so powerful. MBSN is Management By Sticky Notes and we teach it in our Leadership Academy. In addition it is the tool of making your thinking visible to others which we apply with whiteboards, stickies and large graphic "thinking templates" in our i2a: Insights to Action thinking system. I am also a fan of the book Gamestorming. Thanks for sharing!

Tom Hood's insight:

This quote says it all, "Collaboration is grounded in human interaction and relationships. One participant even said: “We need to get back to the intimacy.”


Great article and relates to the ultimate founding purpose of associations. This also reinforces the old principle of high-tech, high-touch with the reality being it is yes, AND, not OR when it comes to interactions. 


At MACPA we are working on increasing the ability of our members to connect and collaborate by integrating high-tech and high-touch. Exploring new technologies that increase engagement and particpation with real-life and live events we think can harness the collective power of our entire membership. 


Imagine what can be accomplished if we can connect the minds of 9,000+ CPAs? What problems could we solve or innoavtions could we create? 


It all starts at our MACPA Innovation Summit where we will use social media, and three new technologies - ThinkTank by Group Systems, Conferences.IO, and Flybits (location aware services) to connect the Top Thought Leaders in the CPA Profession, Top technology providers, Learning Leaders, and our diverse membership in a safe environment to learn and explore innovation together.

Too Much Like-Mindedness Hurts Companies, and the Country

Too Much Like-Mindedness Hurts Companies, and the Country | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
In a world where we respond to increasing uncertainty by seeking out like-mindedness, companies can play a role in building diversity.
Tom Hood's insight:

For me, this captures the value of Associations and many of our events, like our Innoavtion Summit where we are working in "planned serendipity" and the cross-pollinization of many areas of the CPA profession. While we have many of those "common interste groups, we have lots of events where serendipity and diversity can blossom - our town halls, Innoavtion Summit, our Board, and many of our professional developmet activities.


"Organizations that host a diverse and broad range of members have a resilience that results from cross pollination. They have the ability to sense trends and react quickly and creatively to problems as they arise. As the lines between industries increasingly blur, this capability becomes more important, and is one of the advantages that large companies can have over small ones. In a world where we respond to increasing uncertainty by seeking out others like us, companies can play a significant role in building diversity and creating the mechanisms to enhance the potential for serendipity. Those who figure this out are likely to build a significant competitive advantage in resilience and creative thinking over firms that let us stay in our comfort zone."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 23, 2013 7:18 PM

The reason we seek out like-minded people is because we do not recognize the importance of civil discourse and the role diversity plays in creativity and innovation.

How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes: Lessons in Mindfulness and Creativity from the Great Detective

How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes: Lessons in Mindfulness and Creativity from the Great Detective | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

“The habit of mind which leads to a search for relationships between facts,” wrote James Webb Young in his famous 1939 5-step technique for creative problem-solving, “becomes of the highest importance in the production of ideas.”But just how does one acquire those vital cognitive customs? That’s precisely what science writer Maria Konnikova explores inMastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes (UK; public library) — an effort to reverse-engineer Holmes’s methodology into actionable insights that help develop “habits of thought that will allow you to engage mindfully with yourself and your world as a matter of course.”

The Great Inflection has transformed the world over the past decade. Each individual has to adapt.
Tom Hood's insight:

In our work with the CPA Horizons 2025 Project the trends and perspectives of thousands of CPAs indicated that "this time it is different" and the sense that change was accelerating in speed, scope, and scale. This article by Friedman seems to affirm this.

 

Friedman quotes Craig Mundie of Microsoft who says, "When the world gets this hyperconnected the speed with which every job and industry changes also goes into hypermode. “In the old days,” he said, “it was assumed that your educational foundation would last your whole lifetime. That is no longer true.”

 

What is the bets way to deal with it? Not I.Q. but P.Q. (Passion Quotient) and C.Q. (Ciriosity Quotient).

It is interesting how few classroom teachers and administrators are aware of what self-directed learning is. SDL is an imperative for our children.

Avery's curator insight, March 25, 2013 11:56 PM

My Thoughts:

You can't teach someone how to learn. You can give them helpful tips and advice, but a single structure for education is not going to work for everyone. It's so much harder for people to learn their true potential, to reach their goals, when they're only shown a single path to them. You show them the path through the forest, but what if there's a rock face nearby that also leads up to where they want to go, and what if they happen to be a fantastic rock climber? It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.

One thing we learned from Chris Anderson at digitalNow was the segmentation that online has brought us. The segmentation will both be driven by learners and context (profession, employer, career) Within each of these areas, innovation is rapidly accelerating. In the case of MOOCs , we only seeing gen 1 fo disruption. In the case of professional development, it is about how do you add value and engagement. You are on the right track.

Thought for the Week - 04/28/13 | Thinking 'I' or 'We'?

Thought for the Week - 04/28/13 | Thinking 'I' or 'We'? | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say ‘I'. And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say ‘I'. They don't think ‘I'. They think ‘we'; they think ‘team'. 

They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but ‘we' gets the credit.... This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.

I think a CEO - or any c-suite person - can really screw up the "be social" thing but being good at online networks is probably, by now, a basic expectation for most organizations and businesses. More valuable than a good golf game, perhaps.

Sharing knowledge has been my experience with social media as a tool for sharing and collaboration. It has created that "serendipitous insight' that allows me to connect the dots more easily and make great friends in the process.                                                                                                      I like this quote in the article, "As we share our knowledge more openly with each other, our world becomes more connected, which can lead to greater recognition of our diversity and our common humanity – ultimately leading to greater understanding, and hopefully a world of greater harmony."

Ivon makes a good point. Is this not true however for most 'new' business and leaderships ideas. Even with (internet) technology as major disruptor in many industries, the fundamentals of value creation (management/leadership and innovation) have not changed. At the root of all value creation (which is the purpose of business) lies collaboration. The more unique the players in the collaboration game, the more value can be created, provided the game is played according to some key rules of engagement. Yes, collaboration as a powerful concept is not new. Facilitating productive collaboration is a whole different story. Perhaps that is where the challenges and opportunities for new leadership lie.

Tom Hood's insight:

"Value begins with with organizations that are willing to change their processes to transform their businesses and delight their customers" - Sandy Carter - IBM

 

Today's environment does not give us the luxury of relying in the past. Who can forecast with accuracy the next 3 - 5 years? That means what got us here, won't get us there (to the future). Which means we have to rely on collaboration both inside and outside our organizations. With our customers and our partners and suppliers and most importantly our teams.

 

Great post and love the idea of "social accounting" and it is not just for CPAs in practice but our CPAs in business, industry, and NFP also.
