A Unique Foresight Experience:

Dreams and Disruptions is not your typical board game. It goes beyond traditional gameplay, incorporating time horizons, drivers of change, leadership dynamics, and disruptive elements to construct a stress-tested, anti-fragile vision of the future. The game's design is rooted in fostering a comprehensive understanding of potential scenarios by embracing randomness, inclusivity, and a diversity of voices.

Holistic Scenario Building:

What sets Dreams and Disruptions apart is its commitment to holistic scenario building. The game weaves together values and ethics, considerations of ethnicity, cultural influences, and spiritual dimensions. By integrating these diverse elements, the scenarios that emerge are not only robust but also anti-fragile, preparing participants to face disruptions with resilience and adaptability.

From Virtual to Reality:

While the game has been a virtual staple for years, the transition to an over-the-table format marks a significant leap.

Participants at the ProDev Seminar had the opportunity to physically engage with the game elements, enhancing the immersive nature of the strategic foresight exercise.
