Play like a Pro

Playing as children is our natural way of expressing ourselves, of stimulating our creativity, of learning and socializing. As we get older we leave less and less room to play imaginatively. We replace free play with competitions where the goal is to win, and for that, others have to lose. In an age of rapid change, key new skills cannot be acquired through traditional means alone, and in a world in dire need of new ways of working, the game is returning to center stage.

How to Create Organizations Fit for Geniuses

When most organizations, large or small, consider sporadically stopping innovating and consider professionalizing their innovation efforts, the vast majority have no idea where to start. Many organizations are trapped in these dilemmas indefinitely, in a huge paralysis-by-analysis, which further divides the organization and frustrates those involved who joined the project to "innovate" and not to be bogged down in bureaucracy and endless discussions. br /> This guidebook attempts to clear up the equation of "where should we start" and "where should we focus our innovation efforts now".

In addition, because the environment is more changeable than ever, the skills that until very recently were essential for teams, have become obsolete, now requiring others more focused on creativity and innovation.
