Measure, Reward and Encourage User Adoption for IBM Connections
Kudos Badges can transform and accelerate organisations usage of IBM Connections by encouraging users to leverage the full capability of social enterprise. Kudos Badges for IBM Connections is a flexible gamification engine for IBM Connections. By providing achievements and rewards (Kudos Badges), rank and leaderboards (Kudos Rank), simple next steps (Kudos Progress), and missions (Kudos Missions), organisations can dramatically improve their user engagement and adoption of IBM Connections.
In addition Kudos Badges is an extensible platform that can leverage game theory to provide performance management mechanics and reward systems for applications outside of IBM Connections such as HR, Sales Force Management, Help Desks, and many more.
When we first designed Kudos Badges we had three primary design goals:
1. Encourage both initial adoption and sustained long term usage.
2. Guide and educate users to leverage and adopt the full depth and breadth of IBM Connections capabilities.
3. Make Kudos Badges extensible so organisations can reward and recognise users for not only their work within Connections, but also from other enterprise applications.
We also recently added a 4th goal:
4. Increase user productivity thru clever design – This is what Kudos Boards is all about!!
