Overview

The gamification technique refers to the use of game elements in a non-gaming environment in order to make activities more fun and/or influence individual behaviour and group dynamics. Having already been successfully applied in various business areas, many companies have also started using it to improve their business processes and shape organisational environments.

Delegates will be presented with real business case applications in other companies and the results that they have achieved to fully understand the organisational applications of gamification.
