About Idea Tactics author, Joel Stein.

Joel is a creativity consultant with a love for words, workshops, and all things weird. He also edited the original Workshops Tactics deck.

Joel worked in the digital content space for over 10 years, and helped major clients like Bayer, Bentley and the BBC generate better ideas.

Joel gets a kick out of helping people do their best work, and believes in the deep value of play. That's why he made Idea Tactics - a flexible, fun, easy-to-follow toolkit that helps you find truly creative solutions to almost any challenge.

The right idea session at the right time.

How do you know what tactic to run, and when?

You’ll always choose the right approach with the Idea Strategy System. A simple set of questions helps you find the most useful category of tactics.

It’s the perfect tool to help you plan your first session when you aren’t sure where to begin, or to get unstuck if you feel lost.

Clear step-by-step instructions.

You need the concise steps to run the tactic - not someone’s life story.

Each exercise fits on the back of a card, so you can get started in minutes.

The jargon-free instructions are easy to follow, for novices and experts alike.

Never get stuck when following up.

You've just finished a great session and someone asks “so what‘s next?”

The answer is on the bottom of each card.

Like a choose-your-own-adventure, it points to the suggested tactics to run before and after - so you never get stuck.

Timeless content

The tactics are designed to stand the test of time. They are simple, yet effective.

Repeatable process

Each deck contains a Strategy System that helps you get to the tactics you need, fast.

The power of physical

Pip Decks are designed so that their physical qualities reflect the power of their contents.

It’s weighty. It’s big. It's smooth to touch. No detail has been overlooked.

Your secret weapon: The Vault

The Vault gives you exclusive lifetime access to our private library of video tutorials and templates for Idea Tactics.

It’s like the cooking show for the recipe book. It shows you exactly how to run the workshops, with hidden tips and tricks that didn’t make it onto the cards.

Plus, there are Miro templates for every tactic - so you can get going with your remote workshops instantly.

Story Bank
