The paper explores how an approach that has similarity to children play can support exploration and communication of complex problems. The most common perceptions of children play are discussed and it is illustrated how these perceptions can be transferred to an adult play setup. It is illustrated how this can be applied in a specific organizational context and the implications of this is discussed. The experiences from the reported case are compared with a large number of cases and the findings are used to define five essential expla- nations for the efficiency of the method. These five explanations are summa- rized in five comprehensive reflection points. The reflection points are formu- lated in a form that both support the further practical development of the meth- ods and a form the invites for further theoretical research.
