Gamification: Just Point's and Badges? (#SWChat)

Introduction

Gamification has always been a favourite topic with the #SWChat, community where it's usefulness in business has always split the audience. We are returning to this topic to see how Gamification has evolved and how people's opinion's may have changed.

This event debated whether Gamification can incentivise employees better or whether it's really just about point's and badges.

Definitions

 Gamification is the concept of using game design elements in non-game applications to make them more fun and engaging.

 Game mechanics are constructs of rules intended to produce an enjoyable gameplay. Think of it as basic building blocks that can be combined in interesting ways to drive a (often complex) sequence of actions in order to achieve desired results.
