Talk: Innovation Games: Applying Gamification to Business Analysis

  • October 10, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

In today's high-paced markets, many business needs are misunderstood or missed entirely, and analysts need a broad toolkit in order to stay on top of things. The Innovation Games® technique helps organizations large and small put their Ideas into Action by playing games. Playing games to do work may seem like a radical idea, but traditional thinking tends to be left-brained only. Playing carefully designed, serious games lets our clients engage in whole-brained thinking to solve business problems across the enterprise — in sales, corporate strategy, product development, R&D and marketing. From discovery to shaping a roadmap to prioritization, Innovation Games® help you bring your Ideas to Action™.

    I was hesitant to attend this session but very glad I did. It was entertaining as well as informative. As a matter of fact, I was nearly home in Lake Mary when I realized I had learned a new way of eliciting requirements... It's almost like hypnotizing stakeholders and extracting thier thoughts :-)

    Loved the session. Agree with others, too short of a time to spend, but left us wanting more.

    The only bad thing was that it left me wanting more information. Great subject matter that's too much to fit into the time constraints. The activities were enjoyable.

    Folks, just letting you know that we will be hosting next Thursday's meetup at Kony, 7380 West Sand Lake Road #390, Orlando, FL. If you got spammed multiple times, my apologies. For some reason, Meetup.com did not want to store the address. That's fixed now and you should be able to get a map. Keep in mind this is near Universal Studios.

    Expect a highly interactive presentation where you will experience some of the games on http://innovationgames.com We still have plenty of seats. So please tell those who would be interested.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
