This deck loses something in translation. Sure it was more dynamic when presented (and am going to look for notes). I wanted to to rant about Gartner. 

Gartner is playing both sides of the #gamification trend. They promote it on the one hand saying everyone is doing it and then tear it down with their famous 80% will fail study. 

Newsflash Gartner 80% of all Internet marketing fails. How do I know this? 7 Years as a Director of Ecommerce taught me the immutable truth of Pareto's distribution otherwise known as the 80/20 rule. 

On any website 20% of anything will control 80% of anything (sales, clicks, shares, whatever). Congratulations Gartner your study discovered the 80/20 rule and then presented it as if was news (hey whatever it takes I guess). 

Don't be fooled by idiots, Internet marketing is a gamification engine. Even if you use very LOW LEVEL gamification such as a simple loyalty program or a contest or a game (with a leaderboard) you know games work online and don't let anyone tell you different.

Lo spiega tramite una serie di slide Karl Kapp, insegnante, scrittore ed esperto della convergenza dell'insegnamento, della tecnologia e delle operazioni di business, professore di "Instructional technology" e "Instructional Game Design" all'università di Bloomsburg. Ha scritto "The Gamification of learning and Instruction".

Gamification of the enterprise

Gamification of the enterprise | social learning |
How to successfully add game features to corporate processes...


SUMMARY: Enterprise gamification can be productive but risks pitfalls -The "gamification" of enterprises is seen as a replacement for often ineffective leaderboards and other traditional incentives. Slalom Consulting used team play to help employees learn their colleagues' names and faces. Allstate ran a contest for suggestions to improve claim-scheduling and crowdsourced a company application. But gamification efforts are not without pitfalls, including unhealthy competitiveness, the need to keep the games fresh and the sense they might be substituting for compensation, some experts say.
