I’m looking for some inspiration! Something useful?

In its simplistic gameful way, Mighty Cards is something you can try here and now.

What to do with Mighty Cards?

Use them to find out WHY people are not doing what they’re supposed to be doing. The cards help you facilitate the conversation between you and various stakeholders. Drill down to the WHYs, so you can design appropriate actions to address them. There are no rules for the cards.

How about this: you give a set to each stakeholder. Write a barrier on the board, something holds people back from what they’re supposed to be doing. Ask your “players” to hide their cards and pick one that is most likely the cause of why people are not doing what they’re supposed to. Count to three and have them reveal their cards: watch what happens! A good conversation!

Or, have your “players” pick one random card. Tell them not to reveal the card. Their role is to argue for the reason they randomly picked (even if they don’t believe it’s a motivation issue for example). By forcing them to think outside their bias, you may discover deeper problems.

You can create and print your version of these cards. Or just order them from here: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/mighty-cards
