Gamification in Project Management

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Interesting presentation last night on the potential for gamification to be used in project management.  Development and investment in gamification over recent years has been significant, but what is its potential for improving the success of projects?  Using game-theory and game-design techniques to encourage engagement and positive behaviours can have a significant impact – engaged teams can outperform other teams by between 45 and 200%.

Learning in this area is still very new, gamification techniques are by no means universally applicable, but carefully focussed with the right project and organisation culture, it is a tool with significant potential.  We continue to learn and develop our understanding in this area and expect to be doing a lot more with it in the near future.
