“Challenge your current way of thinking” – stimuli cards (free toolkit)

Are you stuck in a pattern of thinking? These challenge stimuli cards will help you challenge any kind of thinking whether it is about product development, service or social innovation or any other problem or focus that needs new thinking. Challenge cards provide advanced cognitive stimulation and are intended for creative processes with high ambition for novelty. Each card provides four unique cognitive challenges. They are designed ready to print on a duplex printer. I invented this toolkit in collaboration with Søren Hansen and Kreativitetslaboratoriet.

Inventive principle stimuli cards for initiating new directions of thinking (free toolkit)

Need help coming up with those surprisingly novel ideas? These stimuli cards facilitate cognitive stimulation in order to diverge thinking into new areas of interest. Inventive principle cards are primarily applicable for technical related problem areas, but can also provide help for other problem areas. Each card provides four unique inventive principles. They are designed ready to print on a duplex printer. I invented this toolkit in collaboration with Søren Hansen and Kreativitetslaboratoriet.

The Creative Platform “board game” (free toolkit)

Need a creative process, but don’t have a facilitator? No problem 🙂 

This game-like creativity toolkit takes you easy through a series of steps for problem definition, idea production and solution development. It was originally developed for a cross-disciplinary and cross-industrial network of business and product developers developing original new ideas in collaboration. However, it is useful for any teams who would like some structure on their creative process. The toolkit  contains the following:

  • Creativity training and energiser exercises
  • Facilitation board
  • Instruction guides
  • 5 different creativity tools for cognitive stimulation 
  • Problem definition cards
  • Project planning cards

I developed this game in collaboration with Søren Hansen and Anette Pihl Nielsen. It is freely available in Danish and can be downloaded here in two parts.
