one card at a time
Use the kits to understand each other, map different types of projects and come up with new ideas.
Each card presents an approach that helps you think about the topic from a new angle.
Icon, headline and description; strong visual language, bright colors. They are deliberately simple, to not distract you from what’s really important – your ideas. Most kits contain around 60 cards which when used together, form a holistic visual overview of the topic at hand.

Methodkit originated in the need of making workshops accessible for both the facilitator and the participants. Exercises were not enough, what was missing was tangible tools, worksheets and easy instructions. Initially MethodKit became a way to combine the flexible card format and minimalistic design with knowledge about project management. The whole idea was to save time, access knowledge together and make meetings more efficient.
Over the last eight years we have researched and produced 45 kits, with users in 150+ countries. The kits are not lectures or manuals in a box. It is not about the actual cards but the conversation that potentially could unfold from using them. They leverage the participants to raise their voice, think, discuss and find their own answers. It’s a tool that introduce complexity into your process without making it too complicated.
