Grandfather of Gamification, Chuck Coonradt, explains infinite scorekeeping

They are as follows:. I agree, and after almost 40 years of hands-on experience with over 5, organizations, and hundreds of thousands of practitioners, I believe the most important learning has been that the creation of a culture of appropriate feedback is the most significant of the five principles we previously identified. This principle charlds much more significant than I first realized and is the cornerstone of improved employee engagement through the gamification process.

Feedback is based on:. This is the basis for judgment of the effectiveness of the scorekeeping system and charels within that system. I am not a management scientist, like Jim Collins, but rather an observer of the different motivational levels demonstrated by the same people in different circumstances.

Let us learn about the power of infinite scoring from our experience with the games people all over qork world love to play.

The Game of Work

The scorekeeping systems have several elements which make them the sustainable worldwide standard. Leaders, Coaches and those of us who assist them, must stay true to the principles of established scorekeeping to bring true wprk engagement and satisfaction to the workplace.

Basketball took years to determine define and adopt the three point line, and then had to have several different distances. They are objective — even the scoring of ice skating, diving, and gymnastics, seemingly subjective are governed by principles that insure the consistency which is necessary to gain credibility from the participants and viewers fans They maximize the number of winners. Compare employees playing in a company golf tournament. Then you add longest drive, closest to the hole, and maybe even an award for most lost balls, and you have the possibility of multiple winners and several games within the game for overall best player.


Contrast that with the same players in a tennis tournament where there will be only one ultimate winner. The first round 72 folks lose, and 72 move on to the next round. Unfortunately, the end result is players whose final memory of the experience is a loss. For example, Whether you are in a marathon or other measured distance running the primary goal is to beat your personal best, or Golfwhere a handicap based on past personal performance allows all of us to challenge ourselves against our previous performance In both cases, there is a world record, and of course PAR, but the vast majority of participants are motivated by the comparison to past personal performance.
