Gamification of Work
A ‘Project’ is like your body.
Connection & trust is vital to a project’s execution, and as such, we believe it is necessary to illustrate how the different stakeholders interact. A great way is by making project stakeholders analogous to parts of the human body.
Owner – Brain
The owner is the decision maker and guides the project to completion.
Architect / Engineer– Eyes
The eyes take colors and shapes from the outside world and convey them back to the brain for processing. They take the owner’s idea and shape it into a design that utilizes the available materials, exerts the appropriate effort by the hands, and pumps the lifeblood to the body within the limits the heart can supply.
Bank – Heart
Capital is the lifeblood that keeps the project flowing, makes resources available, and pays wages to the workers. Without capital, stakeholders would neither make their commitments nor be able to function.
Contractor – Hands
The contractor is the stakeholder that takes the resources available and assembles them in an order according to the idea set forth by the owner. This assembly requires support from the other organs of the body but is physically completed by the hands. The hands expend the labor and effort to construct a final project.
Supplier – Nutrients
The nutrients for a project are the resources that are made available to a project by suppliers. All of these resources are available externally and must be consumed on a regular basis, while the project is being built.
Slackrz: Connective Tissue
Connective tissue must be dynamic and flexible within the ever-evolving project landscape of the real world. Gamers are the connective tissue that is lacking in the present project body.
Gamification of Work
Slackrz is a platform hosting Cross-over Games which uniting game play, with real world utility.
What’s great about Gamers, is that they are not afraid of new challenges and have the ability to think beyond the status quo when presented with an obstacle.
On a daily basis, gamers will modify their attempts at solutions without the fear of failure or judgment that would otherwise be garnered within the real world by parental figures, or their bosses. They morph their capabilities in a tactical manner, via modified attributes or by use of tools designed for a novel use.
Creativity runs wild, as their game world does not have preconceptions of what life must be. Gamers can achieve anything and can do so collaboratively, individually or by whatever means that is most impactful to them. The only thing the gamer gets in return, for their time spent, is the feeling of achievement, a “level up” or of an “epic win”.
This “epic win” is what we bring to project development by the confluence of a gaming interface, a mega trend market with tremendous potential for change, and the essence of electronic trust – blockchain.
Blockchain & Smart Contracts
Our platform utilizes Blockchain & Smart Contracts to enable the trust that is needed to create an ecosystem by which gamers can be confident that they will be justly compensated for the time and effort spent developing content for/within the platform. It also facilitates the ability to seamlessly manage project communication, payment, and trust via the administration of electronic wallets (payment rails), which may accept crypto- or traditional currency, and smart contracts (trust rail) that execute based upon volumetrically derived scopes of work.
