entrepreneurial simulation games
such as Innovation Brainball (Innoball) and Innovation Chess
are much more useful than
classic business planning, strategy formulation and  
project management methods.

Garden independent ideation phase Innovation Braiinball, Innoball

Kitchen idea integration phase, team creativity, Innovation Braiinball ideation, Innoball

The intellectual teamwork starts from the independent ideation 'Garden' phase in order to cultivate diverse ideas.

 These individual contributions are merged and synergized during the next 'Kitchen' phase of the intellectual teamwork.  >>>

Innoball Ideation and Idea Selection

SPIN - Spiral Integration of Ideas - value-added brainstorming, Vadim Kotelnikov

Team members submit their independent or merged ideas to the team leader for evaluation and development of the next move.

When Innoball is used to help a real project to succeed, a more sophisticated method of Spiral Integration of Ideas (SPIN) is to be used.



 Evaluating Ideas and Selecting the Best One

Innoball: Quick Idea Evaluation, Innovation Brainball

Fast Idea Evaluation Techniques, Weighted Criteria, Guiding Principles, Quick Decision Making, How To Make Strategic Decisions Quickly

The team leader uses relevant techniques for quick idea evaluation in order to choose the best next move of the team.

When Innoball is used to help a real project to succeed, the method of Weighted Criteria  is the best to use for quick and effective scoring



 Anticipating the Next Move of the Opponent Team

Innovation Brainball: Think for your enemies, Innoball, Dennis KOtelnikov Ksenia, Vadim

While a team is working out its next move,

  Presenting the Best Idea


The opponent team describes their prediction of the move.

The team reveals their next move.
