Repost from Mind at Focus Learning Lab

I recommend the book Gamestorming by Dave Gray, Sunni Brown and James Macanufo. Actually I bought it (and read it), because of the title only. Being one of the co-founders of the Change the Game Initiative everything that has Game in its brand or title catches my eye, especially if the under title is “A Playbook for Innovators, Rulebreakers, and Changemakers.” Isn´t it a nice touch to find something in common with yourself and the products you purchase to impress others? :)

It is a comprehensive collection of the status quo of methods for creative processes, which should eventually lead to innovation (in most cases), for expert teams as well as some examples for large groups. I am not sure why the authors have taken on the metaphor of games and game design (so seriously) to explain the catalog of known and new methods, but it is a nice framing and a playful touch to the whole plot.

Nevertheless taking on another metaphor from music business: it is a great compilation and therefore a book you should read or at least arrange it on your shelf ;-) . Giving the idea of having something in common a second thought, I agree with the authors: The future of work will be more human …

My best friend showed me this video recently on YouTube. And because I somehow feel it is time, after walking the talk, to dance the paths, I start my blog with this symbolic dance.

I like the rhythm by Parov Stelar as well as the performance by takeSomeCrime. Well, time to feel the rhythm again,  I guess, time for new adventures, which want to be explored.
