I disagree. I think gamification has had a long time to prove itself, and it hasn’t. I think it trivializes what’s important — the deep stuff of connecting to our work and the others working with us—based on extrinsic motivation. Obviously, vendors will continue their efforts and practitioners may prove me wrong.
