The Kits

All tailored to different professions & topics

Each kit is a collection of cards which summarize how people think and talk about different topics.
Use them to structure your thoughts, understand each other and collaborate more easily.

The kits help you to…

Understand.
Define the current situation and think about it from different angles.

Prioritize.
Think & discuss what could, would & should be done…or not.

Map.
See the whole picture how everything fits together.

Communicate.
Understand each other and share ideas with a common language.


Brainstorm.
Come up with new ideas and develop existing ones.

Structure.
Capture progress, feedback, dreams and thoughts in a structured way.

Document.
Get it all down on paper, and beyond.

Include.
Gather different minds & opinions around the same table.

Understanding the kits

You don’t need to understand the thoughts and theory behind the kits in order to use them, but if you would like to know more about why we do things the way we do…here are 10 essential building blocks behind every MethodKit.

The kits are…

  1. Physical.
    Make it feel good. We want tools you can hold, rearrange, hand to someone, stick on a wall or move around on a table. We know digital tools are great, but sometimes can’t beat the real deal.
  2. Visual.
    Easy on the eyes. Icon, headline and description; deliberately simple visual language ties everything together, allowing you to navigate between the cards and gain a visual overview.
  3. Essentials only.
    Keep your focus. Too much information presented at the wrong time can kill creativity and momentum. The kits provide a visual overview of the essentials for each topic helping you focus on what’s important.
  4. Guides to complexity.
    See the big picture. Complex does not have to be complicated. The kits allow you to move effortlessly between multiple scales, from tiny details to whole systems and back again.
  5. Conversation starters.
    Ignite conversation & ideas. Discussion & debate are more important than the kit itself. The kits become an interface and a bridge between people without demanding too much attention.
  1. Accessible & universal.
    Include everyone. Deliberately simple, instantly understood and easy to use. We have decoded jargon without losing depth, so that experts and beginners can share an interface and speak a common language.
  2. Structured & flexible.
    Find the sweet-spot. The kits provide space for ideas to develop, without pushing them in any certain direction. They are the sweet-spot between structure and creativity.
  3. Well researched & Peer-reviewed.
    Do your homework. This is what keeps us up at night. We spend a lot of time interviewing and working with experts within each field to ensure every (dark) corner is covered.
  4. Not the answer.
    You are the expert(s). The kits provide a framework for you to define your questions and find your own answers. The kits don’t tell you what to do, you are the expert(s).
  5. In your hands.
    Freedom to choose. You decide how to use the kits, there is no right or wrong. Find what works best for you. If you would like some inspiration or tips check out How to use.

The cards

Icon, headline and description; strong visual language, bright colors and rounded corners. They are deliberately simple, otherwise they could distract you from what’s really important – your ideas. Each MethodKit contains around 60 cards which when used together form a holistic, visual overview of the topic at hand.
