PLAYSTORMS

Innovate in Playmode

Playstorms are Innovation Experiences which put us in play rather than workmode, so that we can create new ideas more freely. Playstorms are less about physical environments and more about the creation of a mindspace where individuals can feel free to explore a challenge through playful interaction and be energized to imagine new possibilities.

Playstorms are an effective way to get Innovation contributions from employees for 2 key reasons:
1) PARTICIPATION – Play pulls people in to participate and to add their voice.
2) IMAGINATION – Play breaks down our defenses and opens our minds.

We have experience facilitating all scales of PLAYSTORMS.

Key Outcome:
Open minds to new possibilities, build creative confidence, drive full participation in idea generation, a great Ideation experience!
