Mix and Match Ideation


Mix and match is a fun live ideation activity you can do to help teams generate new ideas and solutions. By mixing different objects and people involved in an activity and considering how they could work together differently, teams can find new connections and solutions.

We’ve included instructions as well as some examples in the board and a practical application in the video to illustrate how to run the mix and match activity.

Key reminders for teams as they go into this: build on the ideas of their teammates, don’t worry if ideas are practical - there will be time to narrow it later in the activity, and most importantly - have fun!
