In the 1964 classic Mary Poppins, the Bank’s children refuse to clean up the nursery because they don’t think it will be fun, so what does Mary Poppins do? She turns the chore into a game of course!

Humans are wired from birth to play games that are fun and engaging. Games provide motivation, ability, and trigger and feed our basic drive for self-accomplishment according to the Fogg Behavior Model.

We have already seen mobile, social, and simple online games entice hundreds of millions of people into the gaming world. Will the next wave of games incentivize us to accomplish goals outside of the fun of playing the game? Will gamification revolutionize customer engagement, alter the way we measure and motivate employees, or change the way we improve our health and educate our children?
