Playnnovation: Experience play as a key driver for innovation
When was the last time you played? 👀
Play and the connection it builds amongst people and ideas is one of the key competencies necessary to push forward breakthrough concepts in your innovation journey.
The Playnnovation™ framework is a game-hands-on experience that explores the theory of fun and the importance of incorporating play in our work environment and daily life. The goal is to fuel imagination, creativity, problem-solving abilities, cross-collaboration, and emotional well-being.
This will be a hands-on and interactive session where you will experience play as a key driver for innovation. The hosts will lead you in exploring why fun creates engagement and how playing is the best way to (un)structure ideas in order to test them out within a safe, productive, and meaningful context.
During the session you will:
💡 Experience how to apply the Playnnovation framework to design innovative approaches and concepts for a given challenge;
🧠 Discover the innovator's mindsets necessary to unleash creativity and deliver transformation in your innovator’s journey;
