Course Outline

We're going to move fast through the course material. We'll organize into small teams, review the content - and PLAY. Along the way we'll share challenging, insightful conversations and comfortably field your game-based questions (we'll gently side-step questions on hydraulic fracking). You'll end up wondering how time could literally fly by when you're seriously engaged in the future of collaboration.  


This is a Master Class, intended for those who have experience in producing and facilitating Innovation Games, Gamestorming, and other forms of strategic, collaborative play. A good rule of thumb is that you should be Certified Collaboration Architect, Orange Belt, or equivalent.  If you're wondering about the difference between convergent and divergent thinking or are unsure as to when you might use Speed Boat or Remember the Future this class is not for you.
