Camilla Nørgaard Jensen, PhD
Camilla Nørgaard Jensen is Founder of InterPlay, a change agency that accelerates knowledge co-creation, knowledge sharing, and innovation by applying Serious Play methods and Design Thinking approaches to complex problems. Organizations hire InterPlay to design and facilitate playful activities that build trust, improve communication, drive engagement, break down silos, and boost creative problem-solving.
While InterPlay is a one woman consulting biz, scientifically grounded in Dr. Jensen’s doctoral research focused on serious play methods for accelerating knowledge transfer and innovation in organizations, it is also part of a strong collaborative of expert facilitators called PhosLabs. This synergistic collaboration enables them to cultivate sustainable change at scale in the organizations they serve.
Dr. Jensen’s passion is to develop and deliver workshops that enable people from various disciplines to communicate and collaborate more effectively when dealing with complex issues. For her PhD research she utilized LEGO® Serious Play® and design thinking methods to facilitate material deliberation and out-ofthe- box thinking in the context of nanotechnology and its broader implications to society, health, and the environment.
As part of her current practice Dr. Jensen designs and hosts corporate entrepreneurship pitching programs/events that enable global Fortune 200 companies to accelerate their innovation process and build internal capacity for creative, collaborative problem solving. She is also spearheading a reintegration program for veterans. In this program she uses the LEGO® Serious Play® method to empower veterans to share their story, make sense of their transition experience, and find a sense of belonging in the civilian world.
Dr. Jensen earned her Masters in Industrial Design and Engineering from Aalborg University in Denmark, where she collaborated with the LEGO Group and the MIT Media Lab on the next generation of interactive robotic play scenarios. She has worked and consulted for several award winning entrepreneurs and design firms. In 2007, she moved to Arizona and continued her work on hybrid (physical/digital) learning and play experiences. During her time at Arizona State University she has worked in the Arts, Media and Engineering program on interactive robotics, developed games for physical and cognitive rehabilitation in the Biomedical Informatics program, served as a core member of the tech team in the Decision Theater, and landed National Science Foundation grants to support her PhD research at the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment.
