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

Presented by Monica Cornetti –

Wouldn’t it be great to know how to introduce a gaming dimension to the corporate training you design or offer? What would it look like to include game elements such as points, levels, challenges, rewards, and leaderboards… to drive participation, engagement, retention and achieve a measurable ROI?   

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.   


In this workshop 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?

Gamification of real-world training and development is a powerful technique which can motivate people and help generate loyalty to your organization, its products, and its message. At its core, Gamification is about finding the fun in the things that we have to do.   


Making business processes compelling by making them fun is about the most fascinating and coolest thing that I can think of!
