Graham Welch (Professor, Chair of Music Education, University College London, Institute of Education) states ‘I like the novelty of the design in that it allows participants to (a) be anonymous and (b) be able to interact as part of the group. This provides a potentially safe space to explore ideas and also relationships. Having a focus on a piece of modern (accessible) art, I.e., something external to the participant individual, is also a great positive as this supports a process of discussion and analysis that should be less emotive than in a normal workplace setting.’
Andy Salmon (Interim Dean and Pro Vice Chancellor, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge) states ’Our collaboration with Altogame is really fruitful. Their innovative approach does several essential things. First and foremost it asks the key questions in the most active and stimulating ways. Secondly it engages the self as the primary creative unit; this appeals directly to arts, humanities and creative technologists. Lastly, I think the international perspective, particularly the Finnish one, is of real value.’
Mika Niemelä, CEO, Mediware: ‘My team, after playing one of AltoGame’s games for just 45 minutes, was able to generate more ideas than in a whole year.’
Experienced facilitator: ‘Altogame is the most ambitious facilitation tool, I have ever seen’
Lateral thinking is solving problems through an indirect and creative approach, using reasoning that is not immediately obvious and involving ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic. The term was coined in 1967 by Edward de Bono.
