内容紹介

Take your business to the next level--for the win Millions flock to their computers, consoles, mobile phones, tablets, and social networks each day to play World of Warcraft, Farmville, Scrabble, and countless other games, generating billions in sales each year. The careful and skillful construction of these games is built on decades of research into human motivation and psychology: A well-designed game goes right to the motivational heart of the human psyche. In For the Win, authors Kevin Werbach and Dan Hunter argue persuasively that gamemakers need not be the only ones benefiting from game design. Werbach and Hunter are lawyers and World of Warcraft players who created the world's first course on gamification at the Wharton School. In their book, they reveal how game thinking--addressing problems like a game designer--can motivate employees and customers and create engaging experiences that can transform your business. For the Win reveals how a wide range of companies are successfully using game thinking. It also offers an explanation of when gamifying makes the most sense and a 6-step framework for using games for marketing, productivity enhancement, innovation, employee motivation, customer engagement, and more. In this illuminating guide, Werbach and Hunter reveal how game thinking can yield winning solutions to real-world business problems. Let the games begin!

レビュー

"Video games now have the dubious honour of having inspired their own management craze. Called 'gamification,' it aims to take principles from video games and apply them to serious tasks. The latest book on the subject, For the Win, comes from Kevin Werbach and Dan Hunter, from the Wharton Business School and the New York Law School respectively...[T]heir central idea--that the world might be a better place if work was less of a necessary drudge and more of a rewarding experience in itself--is hard to argue with." --The Economist "Here's a conversion worthy of a Transformers movie: Take buttoned-down, MBA-toting business professionals and turn them into video game designers. That's the goal of a new book about Gamification, changing behavior of employees and customers by appealing to their sense of fun and their competitive instinct, video game style. The co-author of For the Win: How Game Thinking Can Revolutionize Your Business is Dan Hunter, who runs New York Law School's Institute for Information Law and Society. He says gamification done right is about meaningful competition." --David Brancaccio, Marketplace, American Public Radio "Werbach and Hunter aren't playing around with this book on how to add the joy of gaming to your enterprise. This is a quick but thoughtful look into the pros and cons of gamification, what works and what doesn't, with plenty of insight into what really motivates and engages customers and employees." --Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind "For the Win is a total win! In the 21st century, business must shift from push to pull to get the best out of their employees and to entice their customers. This book brilliantly explains how to design and use gamification techniques to that end. I highly recommend this useful and fun to read book." --John Seely Brown, Coauthor of The Power of Pull and A New Culture of Learning; Co-chairman, Deloitte Center for the Edge; Former Chief Scientist, Xerox Corporation and Director of its Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) "If you want to understand one of the most important trends in business today, go out and buy For the Win. Werbach and Hunter reveal the secrets to powering up your organization through game thinking. Read this book. It's a game changer." --Brad Feld, Managing Director, Foundry Group; Co-author of Do More Faster "If you prefer realism to hype and rationality to bandwagons, this is the gamification book for you. As a work about gamification today, this book is excellent; as a work about gamification tomorrow, it's staggeringly excellent." --Richard Bartle, Professor, University of Essex; Creator of MUD1, the first multiplayer online game; Author of Designing Virtual Worlds "Like gamification, this book is a fusion of human nature and good design. Far and away the best book on the subject, with the most examples and the best intellectual grasp of the topics." --Bing Gordon, Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers; former Chief Creative Officer, Electronic Arts "Every business executive, small business owner and public servant should read this book; the public and private benefits would be enormous. I'm not kidding. If you're even half as blown away as I was by For the Win, it'll be your best book purchase of the year. Applying 'game thinking' to everyday life might just change... well, everything. Read the book and you'll see what I mean." --Jessica Mulligan, Online game pioneer and co-founder, Themis Group "For the Win is the perfect title, because businesses that understand these techniques will be the standout winners in their markets. Do yourself a favor and read this deep yet practical guide before your competitors do." --Rajat Paharia, Founder and Chief Product Officer, Bunchball "A wonderfully written, funny, and timely work. Should be required reading for anyone pursing a modern undertaking utilizing these concepts. As the concept of 'gamifying' continues to grow, the importance of this text will continue to emerge." --Professor Andrew Phelps, Director, School of Interactive Games & Media, Rochester Institute of Technology "For the Win hits a home run in illustrating the business value of gamification for both small and large companies across the globe." --Kris Duggan, CEO, Badgeville "An entertaining and immensely practical guide to this rich managerial opportunity." --Philip Evans, Senior Partner, Managing Director, and BCG Fellow, Boston Consulting Group; co-author of Blown to Bits "In For the Win, Werbach and Hunter eloquently and practically explain how to apply one of the most important shifts in our cognitive models." --Joichi Ito, Director, MIT Media Lab "For the Win is the smartest book written on the practical potential of gamification. With eyes wide open to both the promise and the risks inherent in yoking business practices to the power of play, Hunter and Werbach may have singlehandedly saved gamification from collapsing under the weight of its own hype." --Julian Dibbell, author of Play Money and My Tiny Life

5つ星のうち 5.0 Revolutionize your business by using game thinking ! 2012/11/2
By Caufrier Frederic - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
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!

5つ星のうち 3.0 How game thinking should revolutionize your writing 2013/11/8
By Allen Baird - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
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.

5つ星のうち 5.0 How to make business processes more engaging 2012/10/30
By John Gibbs - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
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.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Actionable content to get started with the basics of a gamification strategy. 2014/2/18
By Sherrie Rohde - (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.
