Playing with Project Management
Interesting application of 'Gaming' here.
Software development projects are notorious for blowing past deadlines and through budgets, however managers try to track progress and motivate workers to hit milestones. A startup called RedCritter is taking a new approach, with software that turns the task of measuring performance and sticking to a schedule into something more like a game.
I wonder how well this would really work. I'd imagine the intended player audience makes a difference.
Reminds me some of Jane McGonigal's work.
