To celebrate the official launch of my Systematic Guides to Management and Leadership, for a very limited period I am discounting each of the 4 books by 75% off their retail price of £15 (or dollar/euro equivalent).

ISEE Systems, a leading developer of business simulation tools, have published reviews of two of the new Dashboard Business Simulation Games developed using the ithink platform.

I cover 4 key aspects of Gamification: Objectives, Frameworks, Building Blocks and Implementation Risks/Mitigations.
