INTRODUCING METHODKIT FOR …
23 decks of cards to plan & develop everything from projects to cities
The kits are analog tools designed to summarize topics of all kinds – everything from personal projects to urban planning. Each kit is a collection of cards covering the most relevant elements, actions and aspects of a specific topic. By giving you a visual framework upon which you can build conversations, ideas and visions, the kits help you to structure your thoughts, understand each other and collaborate more easily.
The kits help you see the big picture and the details at the same time. For example, in MethodKit for Projects, each card represents elements common to all projects ie. goals, budget, roles & responsibilities, team, time frame, meetings, target group, vision, deadlines and evaluation. Having the elements in front of you allows you to prioritize, process and discuss what is most important to you.
