The Sureuro Gaming Exercise: designing a game for sustainable refurbishment by housing companies

J. of Design Research (JDR), Vol. 5, No. 2, 2006

Abstract: The Sureuro Gaming Exercise (SGE) is a management game designed to show managers of housing companies how sustainable urban renewal involves organisational change in addition to different operational decisions. This paper presents how the SGE has been set up to help managers of housing companies make sustainable design choices at operational, tactical and strategic level. In the development of the game a paradoxical choice has been made: to communicate the complex set of lessons about designing sustainable refurbishment plans, a well-structured game has been developed, while the design of sustainable refurbishment plans requires an open approach to planning and decision-making.
