4 Ways Gamification Can Help Your Business - InformationWeek - 0 views

  •  
    "Gamification, as research firm Forrester defines it, is "the insertion of game dynamics and mechanics into non-game activities to drive a desired behavior." To be successful, businesses need to engage their communities in ways that match business goals, whether that's by increasing communication with employees and customers, reducing support costs, or promoting a greater sense of community and recognition."

Why 'fungineering' your workplace won't work - 0 views

  •  
    "Despite the sobering economic shocks of recent years, the Fun at Work movement seems irrepressible. Major companies boast of employing Chief Fun Officers or Happiness Engineers; corporations call upon a burgeoning industry of happiness consultants, who'll construct a Gross Happiness Index for your workplace, then advise you on ways to boost it."

Gamification in the Workplace | The Engagement Blog - HiSocial - 0 views

  •  
    "The company of the future - and indeed the company of the present - needs new instruments to adapt to a changing reality. The new generation of digital natives is progressively being incorporated to the world of work. We are talking about a generation that has lived most of its life within the technological revolution that has occurred in the last two decades. It has connected people, who spend more time on the Internet than in front of the television and who have lived with the emergence of video games. It is not to judge whether that is good or bad, it's simply real and nothing will change it."
  •  
    Looking at the HiSocial offering, I can't help but wonder about unintended consequences. The digital natives are savvy and will naturally find ways of 'gaming' the system. If you simple reward actions such as visiting intranet pages or 'downloading corporate material', you are in no way increasing the sum total knowledge, helping efficiency or decision making. What's needed is reward that stimulates participation and qualitative contribution, not just transactions.

Are employees rejecting SharePoint? - 1 views

  •  
    SharePoint is unquestionably a success from a licensing perspective, but dig behind the firewall and the picture looks more chequered. For example in a uSamp survey last year, 80 percent of organizations using SharePoint said employees continue to share documents as email attachments.

    Recently, the UK Met Office abandoned a twoyear SharePoint implementation project in favor of the cloud-based Huddle service. Even where SharePoint is used, people aren't truly collaborating with it. Team sites are often really document graveyards where content is stored once collaboration has stopped.

What's so hard about managing change? | Management Innovation eXchange - 0 views

  • To truly embed innovation and agility, we have to be able to collaborate, work across boundaries within and between organizations, to bring together disparate experiences and perspectives,
  •  
    "To truly embed innovation and agility, we have to be able to collaborate, work across boundaries within and between organizations, to bring together disparate experiences and perspectives, and to properly empower people to come up with ideas and make change happen. In other words, we have to build different corporate cultures and ways of working". Peter Cheese, CEO Chartered institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)

    These elements are the "softer" side of agility. But they are also the most critical enablers of change and adaptation, and they are harder to understand and to put into effect, which is why they are so often underestimated or misunderstood.

A storyteller's guide to knowledge #kmers - 0 views

  •  
    "The problem is that too many 'lessons learned' programmes fail. Without falling into the trap of sweeping generalisations, I would suggest that more often than not the story itself is the problem; they just aren't interesting enough; they are shallow; they lack the richness that is needed to engage the intended audience; and they lack a structure that reflects the way adults learn. And that is the bottom line, all too often they just don't work in relation to the ways in which adults learn - I would argue in the vast majority of practice that there is actually little or no consideration for the the target audience of a lesson learned (the adult as a learner)."
