For the last few years we have been conducting an informal social experiment utilizing gamification (before we knew what it was) in our corporate training modules to encourage participation, engagement and enjoyment. Along the way we discovered that what we were doing was not only an effective training method, but also had a name: arbejdsglaede. Arbejdsglaede is a Scandinavian term for happiness at work. Happiness leads to greater productivity, health, creativity and success at work. While the results of our “experiment” exceeded our expectations, there were also failures and obstacles along the way which impeded our progress. This presentation features some of our favorite stories from the journey and highlights and illustrates the transferable techniques we have utilized over the last five years in Boeing IT as well as new approach to Agile metrics we are piloting in 2014.
