Gamestorming : A Playbook for Innovators, Rulebreakers, and Changemakers

I do recommend it as a useful resource for anyone thinking about how to get their organization to brainstorm and work through new ideas, urgent issues, or ongoing problems. To that end, I am somewhat disappointed so far I finally finished the book, and while I still agree that many of the games are just the same thing, done differently, I believe the authors have done a great job at cataloging many different options for helping individuals, teams, and co I really like the concept of this book, but after the introduction it is just a whole bunch of game ideas.

In reality, teams that have been together a little too long, fall easily into brainstorming ruts.

Really awkward to read as an e-book on my phone, but my paper copy is a great reference to take to meetings. I’m certainly going to be re-thinking some of the work that I do in that context.

Just to illustrate this – the most advance of them is the SWOT analysis. The second part of the book was rather dull because it shows the games but you can’t really apply them while reading.

A great number of the games provided are targeted toward better facilitating communication within groups or team-building.


Send me a note. The index is great for finding an activity and planning an agenda quickly. Maybe some others would.

Try and apply these “games” verbatim and it’ll probably feel contrived with too much focus on process and not enough on the outcome. Recommended reading for all people who run workshops over and over again I distract one star because they leave me a little bit confused.

I got the Kindle edition of the book, which I think the physical copy would be better. Secondly, I think that the book would have benefited from more example studies, woven throughout the narrative of the book. tamestorming
