Big companies such as Intel and Accenture incorporate gaming elements into the work process to improve employee achievement. Could gamification apps work for small business?
if you are a game creator I would say yes
I'd say it's negligible. There has been a push for gaming elements in work or school related activities, but they're generally lame so even though it works for some people it will also "turn-off" some people.
Games? Yes. Gamers on the other hand, ATM? ROFLMFAO!!!
educational games is all about productivity
I used to take my ps3 to work, I always did my job when I had work to do or when work was at hand, though I can't say it made me more productive.
I don't see why not. Game theory is already a common practice in the work place. Competition, incentives, scoreboards are common in the sales industry. I think it could be way more productive in things like training. Instead of watching a boring 2 hour training seminar that was made in 1980, you could use an app that would include instant feedback and maybe short correctional video snippets.
