While I like the idea of the innovation games as discussed in the book, it also seems that typical organizations have a lot of "games" that they play deliberately, inadvertently or just through habit. Many of these implicit games seem to act to inhibit rather than encourage innovation.

I have found plenty of interesting/true/sad/funny examples, such as:

  • Does the book mention these sort of "anti-games" ? does it it attempt to explain the difference between these kinds of things and the games proposed? Or is that another book?

    Frank -
    The book has no relationship to the negative corporate and political shenanigans that you reference, nor does it discuss "anti-games".
