GAMES | Complexity

Posted on 27/11/2009


This is a good post about Knowledge Games as the future for organisations. It has some bearing on my earlier post about the use of games in planning and community processes. The argument is that simplicity moves to complexity and that harnessing game mechanics provides a means for reflecting complexity. Simplifying complexity tends to be reductionist and produces errors.

“Games are becoming the lingua franca of the knowledge economy. It’s not just the individuals and small teams of technology startups, but the largest enterprises of the digital era – companies like eBay and Google – are adopting game practices into their daily work. It’s happening as we speak.”
