Il existe de nombreux livres sur la gamification mais celui de Kevin Werbach est sans doute le plus équilibré entre exemples et théories. Je le conseille à tous ceux qui veulent un lire "complet" sur le sujet.

Revolutionize your business by using game thinking ! 1 novembre 2012
Par Caufrier Frederic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I am kind of biased here as I was one of the 8000 students of Kevin Werbach's online course on Coursera (Gamification 2012) who got the certification. The online course itself was excellent and very much engaging. Certainly highly recommended!

The book start with a general introduction and builds up by asking the question if gamification is right for your business challenge (following four core questions):
- Motivation: Where would you derive value from encouraging behavior?
- Meaningful choices: Are your target activities sufficiently interesting?
- Structure: Can the desired behaviors be modeled through a set of algorithms?
- Potential conflicts: Can the game avoid conflicts with existing motivational structures?

It continues on what makes gamification work - what motivates? Furthermore it explores game elements like the classic PBL triad (points, badges and leaderboards) in all its details.

The book continues with a very clear framework on how to create a gamified system. Having worked out myself a business model following this six steps framework, I can gladly say it does makes sense to follow these steps to get actual results rather fast.

A nice chapter on possible pitfalls is added at the very end.

This book "For the Win" delivers nicely as a good introduction on the interesting topic of gamification. Keep in mind it is actually only 100 pages about, so when expecting an in-depth look into gamification you will need to look elsewhere. Despite being short (in pages) it does cover the concepts of gamification very nicely.

A great introduction!

How game thinking should revolutionize your writing 7 novembre 2013
Par Allen Baird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
For The Win has many superior features. For someone, like me, who is relatively new to the topic, it serves to break the ice and make initial introductions. It is easy to read in the sense that it contains almost nothing in the form of high-level geek speak or business jargon. The inclusion of a glossary was a superb idea.

The authors are careful not to present gamification as a magic potion for every business ill (p. 43). They are clear in their definitions of what gamification is (p. 26, 36) and isn't (i.e. building a game - 27/8). They insist that a certain type of game thinking lies at the basis of successful gamification projects, not just a throwing in of a lot of game elements ('PBLs'). This game thinking is hard work, as much an art as a science.

Werbach and Hunter are explicit and brutal on what gamification can become at its worst ('pointsification' - 105-7). "Don't think of gamification as a cheap marketing trick: think of it as a deep and subtle engagement technique. A substantial percentage of the gamificatione exmaples in the wild today are just pointsification." (107)

But, I'm left wondering, with all these qualifications, is gamification that revolutionary after all? Well, it turns out, gamificaiton "may" turn out to be revolutionary, although it is at least fascinating (13). OK, so I admire their honesty, but my initial enthusiasm is somewhat dampened. This doubles when I learn that "some examples of gamification are only game-like in the vaguest sense." (40) Their "impact varies" (45).

As they put it, "If gamification is just a gloss on existing marketing or management practices, or traditional rewards in shiny packages, it won't produce any added value." (11) True story. If we are to avoid this and use ganification successfully, we must attain an understanding of both game design and business techniques (9, 124). It is rare for someone to possess both skill-sets.

There's enough familiarity here to stop me feeling completely out of my depth. I play some games. I know Richard Bartle's four player types (92) and Nicole Lazzaro's four kinds of fun (98). As someone interested in game studies, I've read the works of James P Carse (38) and Johan Huizinga (39). Perhaps the best chapter/level is 4, on motivation, where the authors cover my main men Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Daniel Pink, whoop whoop!

So what's my problem? Why only three stars?

The book is dull, dull, dull. Its authors are academics, professors of law no less, and it shows. They've made some attempt to sex up their book by 'gamifying' each chapter, so that Chapter 1 represents Level One etc. Epic fail. The tone is one of seriosity, not play. Thankfully, since For The Win is a slim work, reading it is made bearable.

Some of its throwaway comments sound funny peculiar to me, perhaps explaining the lack of funny ha ha. For example:

"The essence of games isn't entertainment...it's a fusion of human nature and skilful design." (p.9)

False dichotomy, surely?

"The aspects of games that make them fun, addicting, challenging, and emotionally resonant can't be reduced to a list of components or step-by-step instructions." (p. 29)

Then why write a book the bulk of which consists of lists (chapter/level 4) and steps (chapter/level 5)? It may be that the best material in the book are the lists, such as the list of reasons why businesses should consider gamification (30), the list of areas where gamification can help satisfy business needs (44), or the list of lessons about feedback (65-6).

"Your players aren't there to escape from your product into a fantasy world; they are there to engage more deeply with your product or business or objective...[Yet] somehow, magically, it still [feels] like a game." (p. 29)

Aren't fantasy and magic kind of the same thing? Isn't a game "what happens in the magic circle"? (p. 39). And, since reading is a type of play, doesn't designing a book as much as designing a game require a little bit of magic too? But reading For The Win feels like reading a watered-down textbook for analogue undergrads, not an invitation to experiment and explore.

But it's a start, I suppose.

How to make business processes more engaging 30 octobre 2012
Par John Gibbs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A well-designed game is a guided missile to the motivational heart of the human psyche, and the lessons that games can teach can be valuable tools in addressing serious business pursuits like marketing, productivity enhancement, innovation, customer engagement, human resources and sustainability, according to Kevin Werbach and Dan Hunter in this book.

At the simplest level, gamification is about reverse-engineering games to discover what makes them so compelling, and then devising ways of applying those compelling features to enhance motivation in a business environment. Game elements which are explained in the book include:

* Dynamics: constraints, emotions, narrative, progression and relationships
* Mechanics: challenges, chance, competition, cooperation, feedback, resource acquisition, rewards, transactions, turns and win states
* Components: achievements, avatars, badges, boss fights, collections, combat, content unlocking, gifting, leaderboards, levels, points, quests, teams and virtual goods

The book does not provide sure-fire techniques for making the workplace compelling using gamification; instead, it outlines a range of tools and leaves to the reader the difficult design process of applying them to a business environment in a way which will increase engagement without negative side-effects. The authors recommend that the design process start with defining business objectives and target behaviours, and work from there to apply a suitable range of game elements to business processes, using a process of trial-and-error to optimise the results. There are of course plenty of things that can go horribly wrong, and a whole chapter is devoted to epic fails and how to avoid them.

True to the design of many computer games, the book is written in Levels rather than Chapters. The early levels are simple, and subsequent ones introduce more complexity. Unfortunately they read just like chapters to me, and the experience of reading the book was not quite a white-knuckled gaming experience. Nonetheless, the authors are undoubtedly correct when they say that gamification is going to become an increasingly important part of business, and this book provides a very useful introduction to that subject.

Actionable content to get started with the basics of a gamification strategy. 17 février 2014
Par Sherrie Rohde - Publié sur Amazon.com

“Always focus on building authentic engagement; there are no shortcuts.” —Kevin Werbach

Gamification is a hot topic. It’s not just a trend but a debate.

I’ve worked for companies creating software to implement customer experiences based around loyalty and gamification as well as companies implementing gamification into their community strategy. When Kevin’s Gamification course launched on Coursera, I signed up in a heartbeat. While I’d like to say I didn’t add to the 90% of those who don’t complete MOOCs, I did.

However, I did pick up Kevin’s book and read it cover to cover, multiple times. If you’ve been tasked with creating a gamification strategy and don't know where to start, I’d recommend you do the same.

As you’ll learn in For the Win, gamification goes far beyond marketing and requires an understanding of both game design and business strategy. It also requires studying human behavior and how we respond to extrinsic and intrinsic rewards.

By the time I was done reading For the Win, I not only had a much deeper understanding of human behavior and game design, but I was also equipped with a plan to begin building gamification elements into our own community strategy.
