Game session | Foresight game centred on “Future Disruptions”

Björn Theis is Foresight Manager at Evonik Creavis GmbH, the strategic innovation unit of Evonik AG. Here, he is currently heading the Corporate Foresight project “GameChanger”. Björn Theis also teaches future studies at Freie Universität Berlin. His currently research interest is bringing the voice of “common people” into discourses about the future by applying methods of culture anthropology. He previously worked as a senior foresight consultant at Z_punkt GmbH.

Using gaming techniques such as randomisation and competition, players then “attack” each building block, supported by a set of cards, and can “score” by identifying credible and plausible future disruptions. At the end of the game, many parts of the system will have been changed by possible future disruptions.
