As an innovation researcher, completing my postgraduate degree in Innovation Management at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, I have dedicated my dissertation topic in the area of organisational learning by adapting theories in game design and play as an innovation strategy for organisations to experience a culture of innovation and therefore understand the importance of nurturing an innovation culture from within. 

There is a pressing need for leaders of organisations to find alternative ways to reinvent our work environments and activities in a way that could provide enjoyable, non-exhaustive motivations. Leaders can adapt theories of game design and play into daily work processes as an innovation strategy to nurture a culture of innovation. Organisations must understand that they must first tackle innovation internally before they are able to deliver innovation externally.

The review below outlines the journey of discovery in this area of research.
