Game the System™ - The Basics of How and Why to Gamify your Training Programs

Speaker: Monica Cornetti

Wouldn't it be great to know how to introduce a gaming dimension to the business training you offer? What would it look like to include game elements such as points, levels, challenges, rewards, and leaderboards… to drive participation, engagement and long-term clients?

Play along on the Game the System™ game board as this hands-on session takes you through the 5-step process of gamifiying a training program.

At this meeting you’ll learn how to:

  • Define your measurable business objectives and determine how Gamification will help you to achieve your objectives
  • Weave analogies and stories to make the training stickable – so that players remember facts and transfer skills to real world scenarios
  • Create the right mix of ingredients and next steps in your learning activities to allow the participants to acquire knowledge and skill
  • Identify the game elements (points, badges, leaderboards, etc.) and game mechanics (chance, competition, collaboration, rewards, etc.) you will use
  • Construct a consistent, attractive - even charming and captivating - cohesiveness that ties the entire project together
  • Answer the question:  Is it fun?

As the host of a weekly radio program on gamification as well as author of the book Totally Awesome Training Activity Guide: Put Gamification to Work for You, Monica Cornetti's niche is non-technical gamification techniques that can be used in the corporate training environment.
