  1. Yes! Insights from playing Pokémon Go are impacting game design at The Regis Company. 1) This game is not a win/loose- it is about gaining status. For organizational design, an alternative to a leader board could be to award achievements as an alternative to win/loose 2) the use of resources such as raspberries in Pokémon is interesting where I collect resources I don’t immediately need. This concept could be used to an organizational game where “time” or ‘lifeline’ or some other resource is collected and cashed in when relevant in the future game 3) collaborative nature in Pokémon Go means I Iearn from others and my success is not just how well I play, but how well I learn the changing dynamics of the game. This could be an over all “competition” for an organizational game. Rather than competition by table- by consider a class to class completion where tables contribute to overall success- will encourage collaboration within a class (like a “team status in Pokémon go).
