3 Steps To Turn Boring Processes Into An Exciting Game
I gamified processes of one of the team members. Instead of getting paid per hour, he now gets paid in points per challenge accomplished. At the end of a day, he summarizes his points and turns them into dollars earned. The game is built on Google Spreadsheets and looks like this:
I tested this for 7 days and compared results before gamification. Data proved that work was done much faster and better:
Gamification also made it more interesting and enjoyable to complete tasks. The opportunity of getting more $$$ increased the motivation. The fear of losing $$$ decreased poor performance.
3 Steps To Build a Similar Game:
- Calculate how much time it takes on average to complete each task. Then assign the equal amount of $$$ to each task.
- Create opportunities to win $$$ by achieving tasks
- Create fear of losing $$$ by creating punishments
Conclusion: Pay per tasks, not per hour. Give prizes and punishments. Turn into a game
