The power of gamification
Power up motivation and learning with gamification
Can applying game elements and principles to organisational change, leadership, training and work life help us change in a way that is swift, fun and rewarding?
The need to learn fast, change fast and be more creative is stronger than ever before. A gigantic challenge that, associated with the high complexity and lack of people’s engagement, causes way too many change projects to fail.
One of the most powerful drivers of engagement is intrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation happens when you do something simply because you like it and not because you are forced to do it or because you are bribed with rewards. By leveraging on intrinsic motivation, we could definitely increase the chances of success of our projects – but how?
Games like football, Candy Crush, Pokémon GO, Monopoly and chess are so widespread and popular because they trigger intrinsic motivation. That is why people of all ages can be absorbed in game activities for hours – even days.
Imagine the impact it would create if this motivational power could be transferred from something we most often experience in our free time into being an integrated part of our professional lives.

Morten, Global IT, pharmaceutical company; “The gamified training concept proved to be extremely effective and was very well received by the target group. Feedback such as ‘this is the best training that I have ever received’ and ‘this has been extremely funny and well prepared’ was provided by the participants. This is state-of-the-art training.”
Graham, Project Director, food industry; “Well done today: really good session. One of the best ones I’ve been to in our company – If not the best!”
Julie, Director of Event Design, meetings and events industry; “This was without any comparison the best learning experience ever.”
Julius, Editor, meetings and events industry; “I almost cried when I got the Meeting Design Game. If you’ve ever tried to pitch something to get a post on the blog, you know you won’t get anything. In this case, I had to put it on the blog. Every event planner should get one of these and play at the office. Get your boss to pay for it, save some money, or ask your fiancée to buy it for Christmas.”
