PLöRK (play&work), leadership with the power of games
In a changing world, relations between people, management and leaders needs also to change.
Traditional approaches like top-down strategies, “do the same thing better”, “mandate and implement”, “do, do, do, do…”, “more is more”, are still accurate, but is it enough?

80’s – 90’s: Mass customization scalable and reliable technology, communication changed people behavior and fostered company to control of the information driving to System Thinking approach (Hammer, Senge, Kaplan, Nonaka).

- permanent change and high agility
- people motivation, morale
“PLöRK enables fast decisions, fast learning, fast adoption by creating a safe boundary for tests… the game”
“The game is the excuse, the sequence of games and the rythm defines the level of immersion”.
“It is no more a game, it is a simulation.”
