Democratizing Innovation – Challenging the Traditional Institutional Model to Improve Ideation and Decision Making Processes

Toby will give us a brief outline of the benefits of democratized innovation vs. the traditional hierarchical decision making process found in many organizations. The reality is that people build amazing things when they work together. Unfortunately, there are many obstacles when attempting to organize large scale collaborative projects. But PlayTank has solutions that overcome these obstacles through incentivizing productivity and user participation.

About Toby Farren:  Toby started his career as a video game journalist and when he recognized the potential of applying these game structures in non-gaming scenarios, he began working on the initial principles of what would later become PlayTank. After working in research at IBM, focusing on a gamified training tool for customer support representatives, Toby left in 2013 to work full time on PlayTank, a democratised ideation and innovation platform, that features an engaging gamification system.
