Innovation games: measurable criteria for applying games?
Joined: Dec 16, 2003
Are there any indicative and/or measurable criteria that you would use in order to decide whether to use innovation games or not in a project?

I don't provide any measurable criteria. "Indicative" or "recommended" criteria is discussed extensively. Summarizing a lot of material, Innovation Games are a form of primary, qualitative market research (nb: most "requirements elicitation and gathering" techniques fall into this category of market research). The games are organized around helping you get answers to four key questions:
- What are unmet or unrealized market (customer) needs? - How do customers use my products and services? - What goals do customers want to accomplish when using my products and services? - How should I shape my product for the future?
