The “Creative Scene Investigation” board game is primarily a powerful diagnostic tool that can be used to understand the climate of creative thinking and innovation. The game style nature is not only a “creative” method, but also deeply effective, as it allows for important discussion, ideas and insights on the topic in a safe environment. The result is an honest and clear picture of the current state of the individual, teams and the organisation culture.
The game provides an engaging interactive context for exploring the problems associated with creative thinking and innovation. Creatively themed as a murder crime scene investigation (CSI), through the game participants are encouraged to identify WHAT is responsible for blocking creative thinking (the death of creative thinking), and HOW & WHERE it has been stifled in themselves and organizations. They are then shown how to rebuild a culture of innovation through 7 practical ‘rescue strategies’. The game board provided gives profile information about the key ‘creativity killers’ and shows potential ‘murder’ locations around the organization, and through dealing with game cards participants are given the opportunity to consider clues and decide what they think the greatest killers and best rescue strategies are. (The CSI game uses several methods -such as Gamification, which is a business strategy that applies game design techniques to non-game contexts to drive user behavior and foster innovation. It is a concept of applying game mechanics and game design techniques to engage and motivate people to achieve their goal).
The game can be downloaded and run through self facilitation, and or with a professional accredited facilitator, or the authors.
