Games for Innovation: A Five Year Forecast

4,302

Published on

Games provoke powerful positive emotions -- like curiosity, optimism, determination, and a desire to achieve something extraordinary. What if we could bring those same emotions to the workplace? to innovation? to customer relationships? This five-year forecast looks at the opportunity to invent new work practices and business solutions that engage customers, consumers and employees as effectively as a good game.

  • Idea Street encourages employees of all grades, roles and locations across an organisation to take part in what becomes essentially a decentralised innovation process. Staff are free to submit ideas on anything that may improve their day to day working lives, how their organization operates or serves its customers, stakeholders or suppliers.It is often front-line employees, who are closest to the customers and the work of delivering products and services, that have some of the freshest ideas and insights. Idea Street seeks to introduce a mechanism for their ideas, insights and innovative approaches to problems to be captured and properly evaluated.Additionally, as front-line staff are sometimes unfamiliar with the high level strategy and business plan of the organization, their ideas for change may not be adequately framed. Idea Street allows for the setting of broad corporate challenges in order to align the employees’ efforts with major strategic goals, encouraging quick and effective action toward these goals.
  • ESM tests show this to be true – we’re never more happy or satisfied than when we’re engaged whole-heartedly in hard work… as long as it’s self-motivated.
  • It’s because of how unnecessary obstacles make us feel.
  • When we’re depressed, according to the clinical definition, we suffer from two things: a pessimistic sense of inadequacy and a despondent lack of activity. If we were to reverse these two traits, we’d get something like this: an optimistic sense of our own capabilities and an invigorating rush of activity. There’s no clinical psychological term that describes this positive condition. But it’s an absolutely perfect description of the emotional state of gameplay. A game is the opportunity to focus our energy, with relentless optimism, at something we’re good at and enjoy. This is a crucial point, so I’ll repeat it: Gameplay is the direct emotional opposite of depression.
  • It’s because of how unnecessary obstacles make us feel.
  • Now partly, this is just good for us to get this boost of eustress. There are all kinds of mental and physical health benefits. And the emotions can spill over into real life– if we let them. This is one of the important skills we need to learn. Because when we’re putting our strengths to better use… we develop some extraordinary abilities.

  • . Accelerated feedback cycles. In the real world, feedback loops are slow (e.g., annual performance appraisals) with long periods between milestones. Gamification increases the velocity of feedback loops to maintain engagement.2. Clear goals and rules of play. In the real world, where goals are fuzzy and rules selectively applied, gamification provides clear goals and well-defined rules of play to ensure players feel empowered to achieve goals.3. A compelling narrative. While real-world activities are rarely compelling, gamification builds a narrative that engages players to participate and achieve the goals of the activity.4. Tasks that are challenging but achievable. While there is no shortage of challenges in the real world, they tend to be large and long-term. Gamification provides many short-term, achievable goals to maintain engagement.
  • THAT’s how you know you’re making it gameful. THANK YOU.
