Session: The Future of Work is about being more Human - Gamestorming
Friday 15.20 - 16.10
Room: Gangnam Style
Work, society, and technology are all changing at breakneck speeds. The systems we design for become more complex, work is changing from a solo activity to a team sport, where individuals, teams, partners, customers, ... need to work together. Cross-‐functional collaboration requires new skills and practices. How can you engage more people in the process, without losing the creative culture and energy that fuels the process?
Einstein once said “Play is the highest form of research.” Gamestorming is about crafting and playing small but significant games to refine, iterate, prototype, and execute ideas. Gamestorming applies game thinking and game mechanics to help you quickly form simple models of complex systems, so you can involve others in your thinking, explore systems, and experience them from within to gain new insights.
