50 THINGS A STARTUP MIGHT BE DOING
TAROT-INSPIRED CARDS TO SPARK CONVERSATIONS IN ORGANISATIONS.
The Business Meerkat deck is a set of cards to inspire conversations in organisations that would otherwise not happen. They allow people to lift themselves up out of the day-to-day and scan the horizon for opportunities and danger.
The cards consist of Character Archetypes, Forces and Multipliers. Tarot-inspired deals can be used, or the cards can spark ideas when used in more conventional business analysis models like SWOT or the 7-S Model.
Card Deck Genres:
50 THINGS ON A CHRO'S MIND
50 THINGS ON A CISO'S MIND
50 THINGS ON A CMO'S MIND
BUILD SKILLS TO INNOVATE
PlayCards distil six years of research into the skills and capabilities organisations need to be able to innovate into a simple tool that helps individuals, small groups and teams.
In his work, Matt Ballantine has spoken with people in traditional businesses, the arts, government, consulting and more to create a straightforward model that helps people to understand what they need to be able to do to do things differently.
PlayCards enable you to play with those concepts, and take clear actions to build up the attributes you and your organisation need to innovate in our ever-changing world.
They are a 52-card deck that can be used solo, with groups or by facilitators to help people to explore their Play Skills. Designed by Matt Ballantine after many years of research, the cards have been beautifully illustrated by Ellie Dallison from Studio KT1.
