Change is hard but does it need to be painful? What if there was a more intrinsically motivating and nourishing way to drive change?
Play to Transform is a book that challenges the traditional mindset of business leaders and encourages them to tap into their inner child to accelerate transformation with purpose.
This research paper explores the potential of play as a catalyst of creativity for design-led innovation in organizations struggling to accelerate transformation. The practical implications of infusing play into work for serious organizational outcomes are discussed using three case studies that cover creative empathy, divergent thinking and creative agility - three integral concepts of the human-centric design process.
The Play2Transform™ framework (Play Seriously. Design Consciously. Transform sustainably .©) uses the LSP toolkit along with other art and play-based tools to build 21st century competencies.
The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology is an innovative process designed to 'lean in' and enhance innovation and business performance. Based on research which shows that this kind of hands-on, minds-on learning produces a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the world and its possibilities, the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology deepens the reflection process and supports an effective dialogue – for everyone in the organization.
Role play is one of the best ways to imagine yourself as a character of your choice. As kids, we often pretended to be someone else - singer, pilot, animal and even our favorite superhero. That was our way to be whoever we wanted, without being judged.
Dr. SQUIGGLY (based on Schrödinger's equation) and Miss FIDGETY (based on Bohr's quantum leap model) are two such fun, loving, squishy, flexible, vulnerable characters. They both love to play but behave, think and feel differently. Dr Squiggly predicts analytically and precisely the probability of events or outcome, while Miss Fidgety prefers to take quantum jumps, working more with her heart and dwells in potentiality.
They embody the multi-generational workforce of tomorrow and can take on any role of your choice! In fact they are the masterminds of the many playfully serious games that we play with our clients from 8 to 88 years old. Schedule a chat with them here.
Creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, communication and character are key 21st century skills and it is our core belief that Play can help us build these skills.
The Bheja Fry® card game, part of the The 21C Games® by Play2Transform, is a mind-twister is a high adrenaline game. It brings humans across age groups together (8 years to 88 years old). Some are using it for kickstarting creativity, some for team bonding, some to crack up friends and family, some to kickstart a class and some for the love of learning. What will you use it for?
Your brain will be on fire within 10 min of play, guaranteed!
