Why We Created This Game

Creating new work systems and processes is the (relatively) easy part of organizational change. But how do you persuade people to change their routines and behaviours? That is another matter altogether.

‘Selling the benefits’ doesn’t work anymore: people’s expectations of and relationship with their work have shifted. If you really want to embed changes successfully in your organization and get your people to embrace them you need a new approach; you need to learn to think differently yourself.
