The tools we create are intended to spark imagination and conversation, ultimately enabling organizations to have a transformative impact in their communities.
We believe that learning and creativity are best achieved through the combination of design, collaboration, and diversity. In other words: through beauty.
Perhaps, as Fyodor Dostoevsky writes,
“Beauty will save the world.”
There is no meaningful separation between content and communication, particularly when the topic is innovation.
We create tools that bring people together, recognizing that creativity and learning are best fostered in the connections between people.
Voices and perspectives that are diverse will always generate interesting and impactful solutions, even more than the lone voice of the “expert”.

Design Thinking for Social Change
Learn the process of “design thinking” by playing a game. In teams, you will come up with creative solutions to aspects of some of the world’s trickiest problems.
You will discover that resource constraints can inspire innovation, teamwork is required, and evaluation can improve design. You will learn how to present ideas, and — most importantly — that innovation is more of a process than a lightbulb.
Mission Possible can be used multiple times. The game works with as few as three people and as many as 100!
Mission Possible is available as a physical game complete with gameboard and cards and/or as a digital game that can be played as an online workshop via Zoom or other video conferencing platform.

“We use Mission Possible in our leadership development program for emerging faith-based leaders from many settings. It introduces thoughtful consideration of pressing social issues in a collaborative and playful group setting. Through playing Mission Possible, participants learn design thinking principles and processes that they then apply to visioning and planning in their own work and ministry context. ”

What Users of My Mission Possible Have Said:
“My Mission Possible is my favorite tool for teaching design thinking techniques. Every step of the process challenges presumptions and invites creativity in out-of-the-box ways. Upon completion, participants lead, think, and serve differently because they have been exposed to new questions and unexpected ways of pairing resources and opportunities.”
