Many of the issues and problems that are dealt with in corporations today stem from a lack of creative solutions. Everyday frustrations can kill productivity and lower morale. Sales may be lackluster or the workload seems overwhelming.
Coming up with fresh, new ideas sounds harder than it is. Creativity can be cultivated. Business training games can be the answer to the difficulties many employees are facing.
There is a method that involves gamifying the process of brainstorming ideas for solutions. It uses a training game to kick creative problem solving into high gear. Here’s the process:
Creativity flows as ideas are shared and discussed. The question that might be asked at this point is, “Where does the gamification come in?” At the end of the process, points are awarded to those who came up with the top-ranked ideas. Adding the elements of competition, fun, and reward breathes new life into a sometimes dreaded problem-solving process.
There are several advantages to this type of business training game:
The time constraints that are a part of this type of training game forces players to use creativity in order to participate. Repeated use of these methods can actually train the brain to begin to think creatively on its own.
As in many areas of life and work, practice makes perfect. While perfect isn’t a realistic option, the sentiment is that the more time spent doing an action, the more natural it will become.
