Summary

Take your business to the next level - for the win. Millions flock to their computers, consoles, mobile phones, tablets, and social networks each day to play World of Warcraft, Farmville, Scrabble, and countless other games, generating billions in sales each year. The careful and skillful construction of these games is built on decades of research into human motivation and psychology: A well-designed game goes right to the motivational heart of the human psyche. In For the Win, authors Kevin Werbach and Dan Hunter argue persuasively that gamemakers need not be the only ones benefiting from game design. Werbach and Hunter are lawyers and World of Warcraft players who created the world’s first course on gamification at the Wharton School.
In their audiobook, they reveal how game thinking - addressing problems like a game designer - can motivate employees and customers and create engaging experiences that can transform your business. For the Win reveals how a wide range of companies are successfully using game thinking. It also offers an explanation of when gamifying makes the most sense and a six-step framework for using games for marketing, productivity enhancement, innovation, employee motivation, customer engagement, and more. In this illuminating guide, Werbach and Hunter reveal how game thinking can yield winning solutions to real-world business problems. Let the games begin!

Critic reviews

“Video games now have the dubious honour of having inspired their own management craze. Called ‘gamification,’ it aims to take principles from video games and apply them to serious tasks. The latest book on the subject, For the Win, comes from Kevin Werbach and Dan Hunter, from the Wharton Business School and the New York Law School respectively….[Their central idea - that the world might be a better place if work was less of a necessary drudge and more of a rewarding experience in itself - is hard to argue with.” ( The Economist)

Repetitive

I felt there wasn't much 'meat' to this audio book. There were a few examples mentioned throughout but I was expecting much more considering that I find this topic extremely interesting. I think it would have been more engaging had the author read it add I found the narration quite boring

Basic concepts but narration is robotic

the book is talking about fun and gamification roots, but is boring. the narrator feels rushed to complete and the book is vague on some examples. it is an old book, do that could be the reason.

it was hard to listen as the narrator was very robotic.
