Innovation Lab Game/Workshop



Do you often jump to a solution without trying to fully understand the problem first? Since our brain is wired to find solutions fast, it's not such a surprise; however, it can prevent us from being more creative.

There are plenty of problem-solving 'exercises' but not many games. That's why we created this template where you collaborate with your team on a problem while (hopefully) having fun. Use it to train your problem-solving skills, find problems you usually don't think about in the template, OR use it for your upcoming workshop.

Who is this for?

  • product designers, researchers, product managers

  • anyone who wants to improve their problem-solving skills

Why we love it

πŸ‘€ promotes curiosity

🀝 strengthens empathy and seeing things from different perspectives

πŸ’¬ brings people together to think out loud

How do I play?

  • pick a problem; either one from our template or your own

  • move one step/tile at a time uncovering the topic to brainstorm on (give space for players to think first before talking -> not everyone is an extrovert πŸ˜‰)

  • there will be times when there are too many options, and you'll have to vote as a group

  • in the end, one person pitches the solution that you reached as a group

  • finish up with a bit of retro
