Description of Innovation GamesInnovation Games is a facilitation format I use frequently. Innovation Games® are on real-time focused, collaborative games to engage customers and stakeholders. Playing the games is like generating feedback about a product or service. With Innovation Games you accurately predict what your customers want, need, and will pay for.
The successful operation of an innovation game relies on collaborative play among the participants and a set of observers drawn from disparate functional groups within an Organisation.
