Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Guides to Gamification

Gamification has been a buzz word for the past year or so, and for good reason. In essence, gamification is the process of applying game-like thinking and game mechanics in a non-game setting. It appeals to our most basic desires - to compete, achieve, and win.

In the business world, this can be applied to a multitude of processes.

In fact, in the next 4 years the gamification market is expected to grow by 11x, from $242 million to $2.8 billion.
