What are Business Runes?

Business Runes are a fun, right-brain friendly way of looking at both the big picture and small details of your business. You can use them as a fun alternative to boring business planning methods, or a creative brainstorming tool.

Business Runes contains a set of 3 six sided dice, called “runes”, with a word on each side. Each word represents one of the 18 elements of business.

Business Runes also includes a set of 18 description cards with information about each of the 18 business elements.

There is also available printable free version of the concept – just print, cut and start thinking about your business!

How Do Business Runes Work?

There are many ways to use Business Runes.

For brainstorming ideas you can throw one or more runes (dice) and then use the resulting business elements to analyze your business and spark creative ideas.

If you need help just pull out the corresponding description card(s) for the rune or runes you threw and read them.

You can also use the description cards instead of the runes if you’d like. Just pull one or more cards and use them to brainstorm ideas just like you would with the runes.

If you want to use Business Runes for business planning, you can go through each business element, one by one, writing or recording your thoughts and ideas for your business for each. Then you can analyze the relationships between the different elements.

What Are Runes?

Runes are the letters of the runic alphabet, which was used by many languages before the Latin alphabet. They were originally used in the 1st or 2nd century AD.

Runes represent the basic rules of the universe, society, and psychology, and all together they create a system describing the universal rules for human life.

Business Runes are 18 elements of business which together create a system for planning and analysing a business.

“Like letters forming words, and words forming sentences, the different combinations of Business Runes will help you find unlimited insights into the world of business.” – Agnese Aljēna (creator of Business Runes©)
