9780132171472: Changing the Game: How Video Games Are Transforming the Future of Business (paperback)

Use Video Games to Drive Innovation, Customer Engagement, Productivity, and Profit!

Companies of all shapes and sizes have begun to use games to revolutionize the way they interact with customers and employees, becoming more competitive and more profitable as a result. Microsoft has used games to painlessly and cost-effectively quadruple voluntary employee participation in important tasks. Medical schools have used game-like simulators to train surgeons, reducing their error rate in practice by a factor of six. A recruiting game developed by the U.S. Army, for just 0.25% of the Army’s total advertising budget, has had more impact on new recruits than all other forms of Army advertising combined. And Google is using video games to turn its visitors into a giant, voluntary labor force--encouraging them to manually label the millions of images found on the Web that Google’s computers cannot identify on their own.

 

Changing the Game reveals how leading-edge organizations are using video games to reach new customers more cost-effectively; to build brands; to recruit, develop, and retain great employees; to drive more effective experimentation and innovation; to supercharge productivity...in short, to make it fun to do business. This book is packed with case studies, best practices, and pitfalls to avoid. It is essential reading for any forward-thinking executive, marketer, strategist, and entrepreneur, as well as anyone interested in video games in general.

From Booklist:

Despite growth challenges in some parts of the entertainment industry, such as music and print media, the video-games industry is thriving. No longer just the providence of the first-person shooter mentality, the concept of video games has opened up with the popularity of virtual worlds such as the Sims and Second Life. “Massively multiplayer online role-playing games” such as World of Warcraft can support thousands of players simultaneously as players join forces with others to go on “quests,” slaying dragons and finding rare hidden items. The authors, who are both affiliates at MIT, discuss how games are being utilized by companies for product placement (“advergames”) and as teaching and motivational tools, making it fun to do business. The military has embraced video games in a big way, utilizing them for recruitment and battle simulation. These game enthusiasts create a compelling argument as to why games matter, because “at their best, they represent the very essence of what drives people to think, to cooperate, and to create.” --David Siegfried
