Discover a secret tool to improving individual performance in a rapidly changing business environment: gamification. Learn how you can apply gamification to motivate behavioral change to support performance. Slalom Consulting will describe its internal framework and highlight specific initiatives, as it experiments on itself to advance individual performance and build organizational capability.

This program is part of our CPLP competency series, with a focus on Improving Human Performance.

You will walk away with:

  • Tools you can use to diagnose where and when to apply gamification in supporting performance improvement
