Good morning, An! Could you talk a little bit about Gamification trends applied to project management?
AN COPPENS: Gamification is a growing trend, as we see everywhere. If you’re running an app or software of any kind, you need gamification in it. It’s nearly becoming expected. We have social media to think of that, they are largely being gamified or emotionalized with emojis. We have been trained by the systems we use the most to expect gamification.
