Internship – Digital - Agile Gamification

 

Job description

 

Increasing collaboration in distributed Agile teams by applying gamification

Agile methods inevitably made an entrance into the enterprise world. As the market has made a move towards outsourcing software development towards near- and offshore locations, Agile projects will need to enable outsourcing as well. The term coined in Agile projects is ‘distributed Agile.'

 

Another trend in the market is gamification, also known as serious gaming. Interactive learning in the form of games has taken a flight and is widely spread. In this thesis proposal, we want to investigate how we can make the most out of gamification when we have offshore components in our projects. 

 

The research will consist of two parts, a theoretical and a practical one. In the theoretical part, we expect a literature study on gamification and its effectiveness when applied in a distributed context. Furthermore, the theoretical part should contain a comparison between Agile games so that there is a ranking of games based on effectiveness when distributed and the possibility to port the game to an online version.

 

The second part of the thesis will consist of creating the actual game and testing it in a few teams to establish its effectiveness in comparison to the original game.
