Why playing around at the office works

Games are a part of any organization – if what you mean is internal politics.

Gaming – the rewarding of staff for working on teams or suggesting ideas — is something else that may be worthwhile in your enterprise.
That’s what comes through in this book review by Gartner’s Mark McDonald of the recently-published Enteprise Games by Michael Hugos.


With games, Hugos argues, a company can become “an agile network structure” that promotes co-ordination over top-down control. Perhaps the best known game platform is Badgeville, used by corporations as well as consumers.

McDonald says he’s glad he read what he calls a provoking and practical look at gaming. If you’ve used this technique in your company, let us know.
