Gamestorming by Peter Thomson

Gamestorming by Peter Thomson | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Creativity in business matters more than ever before. Luckily, there is a new technique called gamestorming that uses games to encourage creativity in business. 

How gamestorming works

Several creativity consultants (including Ideo) have been experimenting with new techniques for creativity. The 2010 book Gamestorming by Dave Gray, Sunni Brown and James Macanufo codified the “play” approach to creatitvity into a set of underlying techniques (meta-rules) and individual games that can be used to attack different creativity problems. So, what are the elements of a game?

Gamestorming » Blog Archive » Innovation Ambition Matrix | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Innovation Ambition Matrix was inspired by the May 2012 Harvard Business Review article, “Managing Your Innovation Portfolio,” which was written by Monitor’s revolutionary co-partners: Bansi Nagji and Geoff Tuff. The productive game helps teams develop a holistic view of how to get ahead by organizing initiatives and goals based on three innovation levels: core, adjacent, and transformational. Play Innovation Ambition Matrix to clarify the ambition of a project, develop a cohesive operation rather than a scattering of competing advancements, and identify how to balance your team’s effort allocation.

Gamestorming drives Business Model Generation Part I | Business Models Inc. | Serious Play | Scoop.it

At first you might think these books have nothing in common. Agree. Gamestorming (GS) is put together by 3 US authors (Sunni, Dave, James); Business Model Generation (BMG) is done by two European authors (Alex, Yves). GS is published through a publisher, BMG is self published and crowdsourced. GS is written and drawn, BMG is beautifully designed. However, GS and BMG are both bestseller books and they embrace co-creation and visual thinking. So what? No, it goes beyond all of that.

Visualizing the customer experience using customer experience journey maps | Designing Change

Visualizing the customer experience using customer experience journey maps | Designing Change | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"People discover unseen opportunities when they have a personal and empathic connection with the world around them. For individuals, that means developing the ability to walk in other people’s shoes. For companies and other large institutions, that means finding a way to bring the rest of the world inside their walls."– Dev Patnaik, Wired to Care

 

Bringing the outside in using customer experience journey maps


Customer experience journey maps are a tool to help bring the outside world into an organization. They are a tool that can help bring customer stories to life. An entire story. Not just the piece one silo or function within an organization normally may encounter.


And as we map out the customer’s story, our organization’s own story becomes visible. And often what’s revealed is an incomplete fractured story.


Here you will find a few examples of different types of customer experience journey maps.

People sometimes grumble about the dreaded “icebreaker,” but humans are like cars: we perform better when we’re warmed up. This meeting starter is great because (1) it lets people self-define, (2) it gives people a “personality” outside the typical work environment, (3) it gives participants quick snapshots of multiple players (since they see many cards as they’re being passed around), and (4) it creates memorable visuals that give people conversation pieces as the meeting progresses.
