Playing Games is Serious Business

Simple game scenarios can produce the same outcomes as complex and large-scale business scenarios. Serious business games can therefore reduce risk and improve outcomes when launching new services. Gamification also improves alignment and engagement across organisational functions.

This is a presentation on using games to understand and improve organisational design and service delivery, which I presented at the Curtin University Festival of Teaching and Learning.

The slides provide guidance on applying serious business games in your context.
