Researching gaming the system from within

gamification.pngFor the next couple of days, I plan to attend the GSummit – gamification conference. Gamification is a topic I’ve blogged about a number of times in the past year (in chronological order):

Clearly I need to be a bit more creative in my naming of posts.


Gamification is being overlooked as a powerful technique within many enterprises today, so I am attending this conference to expose myself to a much more diversified perspective of the state of activity today. Understanding alternative techniques to subvert inertia for change adoption is useful to anyone who wants to be a change agent.


There are a number of agenda items at this conference that appear to address the concerns that I see in adoption and impact, hopefully these sessions will live up to the descriptions. Some of the sessions will be live streamed so anyone can partake.


The intersection and analytics, workflow, social… in the strategic planning of organizations will benefit from the integration of some gamification perspective. What do you think?
