We design in-person games, simulations, and workshops that help organizations explore possible futures and explain complex issues. Play is a powerful tool for generating new ideas and identifying possible consequences. By taking on a role, participants can better empathize with stakeholders and build intuition for the dynamics of a system.
Exploration games help participants plan for the future by engaging with the trends that are shaping their market and ecosystem. These can be broad in their exploration of possible futures or focused on one or two critical trends.
Explanation games help participants engage with complex topics through play. By taking on specific roles, players gain intuition of a system’s dynamics and empathy for its key actors. The types of exercises can range from large simulations to focused decision making. These games could be tailored for participants such as conference attendees, new hires, the press, and regulators.
