The best part is that the participant receives direct feedback on their actions. In practice, the feedback loop is often stretched until the next jour fixe, employee, or annual bonus discussion.
In gamified trainings, the learning curve is steeper and more direct. For example, as a participant, you motivate your employees in their daily work or, alternatively, overwhelm the employees in their capacity. In the game, you receive direct feedback on the following day.
This takes into account the employee profile, whether the efficiency of the individual employee increases or decreases based off their actions, and if the employee feels like they’re hitting their limit.
