Design Thinking: Warm-up Games
Creating Positive Group Atmosphere
Warm-ups can stimulate creativity, boost group dynamics, bring about relaxation, or be used as an icebreaker to get to know one another.
Warm-ups promote collaboration and strengthen a curious attitude. Warm-up games thus support the design thinking process, serves as an energizer, and improve problem-solving.
In design thinking, we conduct warm-up games not only at the beginning of the workshop, but also after a break or when we realize that the group is no longer working efficiently. This can take place in any phase of the collaboration and have different goals.
Benefits of doing warm-up:
Create a positive group atmosphere
Give workshop participants the chance to get to know one another
Remove social barriers
Reduce pressure to succeed
Activate and release positive energy
Distract the group a little bit so concentration is improved afterwards
Prepare the team for a certain mindset or way of working
Have fun and share a laugh
