Unlocking Play

Problem statement: How can we unlock play.

We've found unlocking play is really simple. You don't need much, you just need to evoke play. Therefore we've made a tool to remind those who choose to take part to evoke different mindsets.

Anyone who is an @play person can evoke others, at any point, to have fun using one of the prompts on the tool. This is voluntary, not a forced team building event.

The best half! Made up of Peter Diamond, Shannon Bainbridge, Colin Meehan, Valerie Poort, and mentored by Amy Holman, Dom Tupu, and Rachel Knight


Thanks to everyone who took part in GovJam Wellington 2015, and to the random people we found on the street for feedback!!
