The 3 Main Elements of Management By Gaming

What is Management by Gaming? First and foremost, it is a system of related functions that arranges the resources of an organization to achieve a set of desired goals. The system requires executive goals, promotes objectives relevant to those goals, and rallies teams around achieving successful objective scores. Management by Gaming is not a novel concept developed in a vacuum, but rather an amalgamation of best practices from several preeminent management methodologies, layered with the psychological principles of gaming. With the application of Management by Gaming, organizations align individual and team objectives with organizational strategy – motivating players to win while delivering on promised outcomes.
Management by Gaming has three principal constructs:

• A transcendent vision linked to strategic goals around which to rally organizational resources
• Team objective scorecards linked to goals that maintain communication about progress between all levels of the organization
• A gaming context to help players engage in the objectives
