The Phoenix Project Game at The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds

I recently had the opportunity to act as an observer during a Phoenix Project Game at the Headquarters of The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) in Sandy. I've wanted to observe a Phoenix Project Game (TPP) for a while now and this was a the perfect opportunity to do so. On top of that, I got to see Sandy's beautiful surroundings.

Tales from The Phoenix Project Game Taster

On Monday this week we ran another The Phoenix Project Game Taster session in London. We did a half day session this time in order to make it easier for people to take time out of their day and had twelve attendees (perfect!) from a variety of banks, insurance companies, building societies and charities. It was in some ways a slightly nerve-wracking approach in that the danger was that we would only be able to run two of the four rounds of the game so people would leave at the point where they reach the 'slough of despond' having not played all the way through to the end where all the dots are connected and all of the loops closed. I'm pleased to report that it wasn't a disaster by any means and people understood plenty about where the game was going in order to be able to imagine what would happen next and were happy about being able to get back to their desks in the afternoon.
