Mediailuminr Launches Playbooks to Bring Response Engagement to Life

SYDNEY, NSW AND DENVER, CO March 13, 2023. iluminr, the platform that brings Agility to life through gamified engagement, today released iluminr Playbooks.

Playbooks are a powerful tool that allow businesses to create adaptive, personalized, step-by-step strategies that engage boards, executives, risk, resilience, crisis, and front-line teams in responding to events of all kinds. Companies create and access dynamic playbooks through iluminr’s platform or through integrations with collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams and Slack, and can be deployed from any device, anytime, anywhere.

Playbooks include prebuilt templates that provide companies with guidance on how to respond to different types of threats and events, such as natural disasters, cyberattacks, and third-party disruptions. These templates can be customized to fit the specific needs of every business, including contact information for key stakeholders, protocols for communication with employees and customers, and steps for restoring operations.


“During fast-moving change, time is of the essence, and having clear, flexible, and intuitive insights, tools, and strategies in place make all the difference,” said iluminr’s cofounder and CEO, Joshua Shields. “Playbooks are a powerful tool that will help businesses respond quickly and effectively to unexpected events.”

“With the addition of Playbooks, companies can now provide adaptive, personalized guides for gameday in the same, familiar environment they wargame. Leveraging iluminr’s gamification and immersive design, companies can engage every member of their organization with context, capability, and connectivity, providing their organization the clarity and confidence to navigate uncertainty,” said iluminr cofounder and Chief Growth Officer, Marcus Vaughan.

Playbooks automatically audit all activity conducted during an event, gather insights on efficacy, and collect feedback that continuously builds the muscle of organizational resilience.

The Playbooks feature is part of iluminr’s Event Room functionality and is now available to all iluminr customers.
