Roger von Oech’s “Creative Whack Pack” is a classic creative strategy building tool consisting of a set of 64 cards divided into five categories of: Environment, Mirror, Shadow, Caution and Power. Each card contains a question which enables the user to asses their approach to a problem or project from a novel perspective. This system can also be used in a team based workshop where participants are assigned roles representing specific types of thinking to promote creativity. These cards have been used in combination with original tools in creativity workshops aimed at developing storytelling strategies and reframing projects.
