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.

  • Facilitation board

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.
