I’m in the early stages of designing a roleplaying-style game to help teams understand how they can apply the Cynefin framework.

The game is based on a fictitious Accident & Emergency ward. The players are presented with different scenarios where patients arrive in different medical conditions and states of distress. The players need to know which Cynefin domain to place the patients; this is challenging because of their limited medical team. Their decisions could change the condition and state of the patient, and therefore players may need to move them into a different domain.

The idea is that players need to work together and use the Cynefin framework to manage various scenarios in an unpredictable environment. The game is designed to test concepts similar to those of a typical development team.
