Many organisations analyse and map leadership and communication skills & competencies via paper based psychometric tests, online basic personality profiling, regular 1-2-1 reviews or by appointing an independent consultant. These solutions can be costly, incorporate organisational bias and be very time consuming.
There is another way….Gamification.
“Gamification is the process of using typical game elements (e.g. point scoring, competition with others, rules of play) to engage users and to solve problems.
January 2013 Forbes online wrote:
“As organizations become more focused on business objectives, gamification can help make the workplace be more engaging and productive because it changes the rules of engagement and inspires employees to change behaviours as a result. Accordingly, by 2015, 40 percent of Global 1000 organizations will use gamification as the primary mechanism to transform business operations.”
