My question to you- What happens when the gamer gets bored of the game?

Ricardo Guzmán Ramirez's comment, May 15, 2013 11:12 AM
If the player get bored usually it´s because bad design : I have no rewarding challenge ( it´s too hard or too easy). But also could be i´ve just accomplished "mastery". The mastery in a game is an issue, but only if you got a majority of your players there and you can´t make them compete.

Some argue that readers no longer want curated content, however we believe people always have and always will look to trusted sources for guidance, and that’s where books and magazines will continue to add value.

All business owners are conscious of the fact that there are areas in their business, that require greater focus from them, if they are to optimise the overall performance of their enterprise.


Where to start, or how to recognise that one may be focussing efforts in the wrong areas, are the key questions business owners grapple with as they work to achieve better business outcomes.


This great article by John Spence, identifies the 10 key areas business owners should aim to focus their attention on, and it provides an assessment tool to help determine which areas in your business you need to give greater focus.

Is Complexity Ruining your Business?

David Schultz's curator insight, April 3, 2013 3:43 PM

I have to say, this guy has it wrong.  He makes it sound like comlexity can be managed by remembering or following a few simple rules.  If you can manage something by following SIMPLE rules wouldn't that make it "SIMPLE."

 

Complexity on the other hand is far more interesting than attacking with some rules and a 12 step process for improvement.  To meet it requires creativity, adaptation, and clarity.  There are patterns found in complexity; can the leader identify them?  Can the assigned team take a new perspective on the problem to provide a "workable" solution?  Can management understand the problem enough to adapt to issues that arrise and record their efforts to ensure they are learning from their efforts?

 

Complexity doesn't mean its difficult, but is far more nuanced than a few "simple rules" can deal with.

Sigrid de Kaste's curator insight, April 3, 2013 6:39 PM

The Best Data Minning Tools You Can Use for Free in Your Company

The Best Data Minning Tools You Can Use for Free in Your Company | IntelligentHQ | Scoop.it
Data miningor “Knowledge Discovery in Databases” is the  process of discovering patterns in large data sets with artificial intelligence, machine learning, statistics, and database systems.


The overall goal of a data mining process is to extract information from a data set and transform it into an understandable structure for further use.

Here is a simple but fascinating example of how data mining helped dissipate wrong assumptions and conclusions about girls, and take action with tremendous social impact.

Unlocking value and productivity in a Social Economy - McKinsey's Magdalena Westergren c.s.

Unlocking value and productivity in a Social Economy - McKinsey's Magdalena Westergren c.s. | IntelligentHQ | Scoop.it

   The McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) estimates a trillion dollar value (10E12) in using social tools to enhance communications, knowledge sharing, and collaboration within and across enterprises. MGI’s estimates suggest that by fully implementing social technologies, companies have an opportunity to raise the productivity of interaction workers—high-skill knowledge workers, including managers and professionals—by 20 to 25 percent.

   In this report, 'The social economy: Unlocking value and productivity through social technologies', they explore their potential economic impact by examining their current usage and evolving application in four commercial sectors. 

   To reap the full benefit of social technologies, organizations must transform their structures, processes, and cultures: they will need to become more open and nonhierarchical and to create a culture of trust. Ultimately, the power of social technologies hinges on the full and enthusiastic participation of employees who are not afraid to share their thoughts and trust that their contributions will be respected. Creating these conditions will be far more challenging than implementing the technologies themselves.

Business Pulse: Top 10 Risks and Opportunities

Business Pulse: Top 10 Risks and Opportunities | IntelligentHQ | Scoop.it

How can you be confident your company is able to meet the risks and challenges currently on the horizon? And how can you know that opportunities aren’t passing you by?

Forecasting the future is risky, but businesses that fail to look forward will almost certainly be left behind in an increasingly competitive, globalized world.

Based on our survey, we identified a top 10 list of risks and opportunities. Are these items similar to those you are monitoring? Are they your top 10?


A shift in thinking is evident among companies this year. Rather than waiting for mature markets to recover from the global financial crisis of 2008–09, they now accept that the duration of the downturn is uncertain. But what’s different compared with two years ago, is that they are also once more looking for growth opportunities.
