Every context is different, every problem is unique, yet they can often be addressed with similar tools.
Our toolbox is made of facilitation techniques and strategy games.
Together with you, we design a process that best fits your context.
Our approach hinges on facilitation, where our neutral outside voices provide structured interactions and focus on common objectives. This allows groups to effectively delve into discussions’ content. These facilitation techniques, whether employed alone or in tandem with strategic games, ensure inclusive and productive dialogue.
Our array of off-the-shelf games were developed collaboratively with field stakeholders and are rooted in scientific expertise. Participants enjoy the liberty to explore novel strategies, challenge established norms, and innovate solutions within these games.
One of our core methods is the Companion Modelling (ComMod) Approach that we use for stakeholder engagement and game design. Together with you and your stakeholders, we engage in an iterative process to develop conceptual models, which are transformed into strategy games for exploration and planning.
Successful stakeholder engagement demands clarity in communication, active involvement, inclusive decision-making, ongoing collaboration, and adaptability. Our expertise lies in weaving these elements into a cohesive process, fostering ownership, diverse perspectives, continuous dialogue, and the flexibility needed to ensure relevance and success throughout every phase of the engagement process.
