Cards for corporate training in creative thinking

Cards for corporate training in creative thinking

While searching for different corporate activity games I found lots of interesting examples of cards but they all like "card of the day" option, it is not possible to play these cards . In fact the task to develop games is not trivial at all. We created the pictures and thought about cards 10 years ago but only now came up with ideas of how to play. Maybe because we realised why people need to play these cards. Providing workshops on inventive problem-solving and especially during in-house training a consultant usually deals with well-educated experts, who are successful in their own domain and psychologically resistant to learning anything, which affects the way they think. On the other hand, the aim of in-house workshops is to get fresh ideas that may require breaking common procedures and introduce new ones. INVENTORIUM business game was developed to create friendly and relaxing environment where experts start thinking creatively without barriers of their own expertise or social status (it just a game, why not to try?). On the other hand, learning pattern of inventive thinking improves the efficiency and quality of solutions – game is adapted to the customer challenge. So, consultancy goes fast, efficient, solution is delivered by the customer and it is fun.
