Summary Play is an essential, necessary, and natural human activity ... and it's for adults and companies, too. Play is an immersive process that allows us to ask "What if?" to break free of the strictures that limit creativity and satisfaction. It is not about reverting to childhood, but a way to use the processes that came naturally to us as children but have been trained out of us, labeled as inappropriate, or otherwise diminished. This book shows how adults and companies can recapture and use this powerful tool to foster innovation, increase their competitive advantage, and create a vibrant and satisfying workplace. It delves into the concepts of play and what makes it so powerful in children's development, and dispels the myths and beliefs that have made play a dirty word. -- Edited summary from book.
