I’ve highlighted a couple below which are especially intriguing and introduced them temporarily, merely to whet your appetite.

Gamification Fostering Workplace Competition – Discusses the pros and cons that office competition could bring into the organisation and its workers. Disadvantages include anxiety, sore winners and losers and decrease in team spirit.

Gamification produces a enormous number of information, which may offer insights into employee or customer behavior. This knowledge can be quite beneficial and potentially profitable.
