Gamification has a long tradition to increase motivation. It is not exclusive within the gaming community but has also functioned as a tool for change management in the production industry. A famous change management philosophy using gamification is the Lean Production philosophy. If you have taken a lean course of almost any kind you have probably noticed many gamification elements.
In the gaming community, in the more complex games; the role play games (RPG), there is usually a person taking the role of managing the game -The game master. The Game Master has the overall responsibility for the gaming session and uses different tools in order to keep the game alive and to motivate the participants in the game, from start to finish. Gaming sessions can transpire over weeks, months and even years.
In order to maintain motivation and group dynamics in such a gaming session, demands strategy, time, commitment and trust from all players. For this, the game master is vital.
In this book, we have tried to put the role of the game master into the context of change management projects. Especially changes within automation. Translated to an industrial environment an AGM could be a person who manages projects, moderates’ activities and creates a creative and fun environment for teaching and learning within automation related projects. Similar roles can be seen at companies today, for example scrum master, lean champion, black belt or lean Senpai.
