Jaume Juan, the founder and CEO of Compettia talked about learning in corporations and companies. Slides for the talk can be found at slideshare.

In the last 5 centuries the model of education hasn’t changed. There is a teacher and he transfers his knowledge to the students. All information goes one way – from teacher to students. What would happen if students could learn and challenge each other and everyone would become a teacher?

The challenge dynamic is a process where one player challenges another player to do something in a short amount of time. It’s great because it’s very social and is programmed to be viral. Several great examples of challenge dynamic implementation could be found in games such as Draw Something and QuizUp. Even though you can play with anyone, it is much more fun to play against friends and family as it becomes a new medium to keep in touch.

So who are the players? They are different in each context, but for corporations it’s usually sales people, channels and colleagues. Different stores or departments can form teams and therefore teams can become players.

What is the challenge? It differs for each player/company but essentially internal training is about teaching processes, culture and knowledge about products and company. Knowledge is divided to questions and answers to make them simple. There is fixed amount of questions and limited time to answer these questions. Also some questions repeat themselves so players would memorize the answers.

Compettia has built a platform that allows companies to easily create their own campaigns. A campaign is essentially a set of specific questions. Several examples of campaign:

  • Sales Technique
  • Summer Collection 2014 training
  • Dissociated Diet
  • Fix and Repair iPhone 4 models
  • Know Who is Who in the Company
  • Customer Stories 2014

Player can choose what area he needs to work on and then he challenges someone from his team.

Jaume presented one real case about their client’s sales people training. This training lasted 4 days, contained 285 questions and 20 people participated in it. Questions were about “Knowledge about a Nutrition Family of Products”. During the campaign more than 52.000 questions were answered (about 2.600 per player). The most important metric was correct answer ratio and we can see how it increased during the training.

It would have been interesting to see how this translated to real user satisfaction or increased sales in a long term.

I would like to share several pictures from the presentation as they represent clearly how the app works.

A video that explains more about retaME platform

The main point everyone should take from this talk is that learning can be fun, social and engaging and companies that will use such platfoms as retaME will have a competetive advantage against their rivals.

This blog post is a review of my favourite talks from Gamification World Congress 2014. You can read more (in Lithuanian) about the trip to Barcelona and the conference in general. More blog posts about the conference are coming in the near future. Also there is a review of my favourites from last year – part 1 and part 2.

Gamification World Congress 2014. Kelionė į Barsą.

20140523-000508-308006.jpg
Praėjusiais metais turėjau galimybę aplankyti Gamification World Congress konferenciją Madride ir Gamification Model Canvas workshop’ą. Likau absoliučiai patenkintas renginiu ir nekantravau kada jis įvyks vėl. Truputį apie praeitą konferenciją galima pasiskaityti mano Devbridge blogo įrašuose čia ir čia. Ta pačia proga, kviečiu paskaityti ir kitą mano įrašą, kur apžvelgiu kas yra gamification.

Pats skrydis buvo gan greitas tačiau labai ankstyvas – iš namų Kaune išėjau 2:00 nakties. Su taksi nuvykau iki Muravos Statoil’o, ten atvažiavo autobusiukas ir keliavom į Vilniaus oro uostą. Truputį palaukiau, truputį paskridau ir 8:30 jau stovėjau Katalonijos žemėje.

Pirmas įspūdis nebuvo labai malonus ar dėl to, kad pats neišsimiegojęs buvau, ar kad truputį lynojo, bet šiek tiek pasivaikščiojęs po miestą atsidūriau lovoj, kurią užsisakiau per Airbnb (užtruko 15 min, trys dienos prieš kelionę). Vieta labai gera, pačiam senamiesty ir netoli konferencijos. Truputį numigus popietukų, pasitaisė nuotaika, išlindo saulutė ir patraukiau į miestą.

Labiausia sužavėjo visame mieste “Ciutadella Park”. Nuostabi atgaiva ir žaluma vidury senovinio miesto.

Klaidžiojant aplinkui netikėtai aptikau katedrą

Daug kur balkonuose plėvėsavo vėliavos

Įvairios vėliavos

Tada aptikau nuostabų bariuką su mažais sumuštinukais. Jie ne tik nuostabiai atrodo bet ir dangiško skonio…

Tiek džiaugiausi karšta saule, kad truputį persikaitinau, tai daug nebevakarojau ir patraukiau namo ilsėtis 😉

Atsiprašau už klaidas, bandau gyvent post-pc eroje ir viska daryt tik su iPhone ir iPad, tai kai kurie dalykai sunkiai darosi :p

Daugiau foto mano instagram’e.
