Gamification at work

2,851 views

Published on

Gamification is a buzzword in business these days. Both Fortune Magazine and Wall Street Journal have noted this trend in late 2011. M2 Research predicts that the Gamification market will reach 2.6 billion by 2016. Gartner predicts that by 2015, 40% of Global 1000 organizations will use gamification as the primary mechanism to transform business operations

As with any innovative trend, best practices are still emerging. Some businesses are taking a “chocolate covered broccoli” approach, simply adding game mechanics such as points, badges and leaderboards to their applications and calling them “gamified.”

This presentation suggests another approach. It outlines a process called Player Centered Design, which is a practical guide for UX designers, Product Managers and Developers to incorporate the principles of Gamification into their software. Player Centered Design involves the following steps:
• Know your Player
• Identify the Mission
• Understand human Motivation
• Apply Mechanics
• Manage, Monitor and Measure
