"Burke is one of the leading experts and biggest thinkers in the enterprise gamification space. Gamify is a book every CEO must read to gain an understanding of what the future holds with these exciting and powerful techniques." -- Gabe Zichermann, founder & CEO of Dopamine and Gamification Co "A gamification game changer! Brian Burke has done what few in the field have ever done before. He's brought depth, humanity, and real purpose to the subject of gamification. A great read, an invaluable tool, and a superb read from an insightful man." -- Kevin Allen, chairman and founder of Planet Jockey and best-selling author of The Hidden Agenda: A Proven Way to Win Business and Create a Following "In Gamify: How Gamification Motivates People to Do Extraordinary Things, Burke draws on Gartner's proven research methodology and unique access to a broad swath of enterprise managers, thought leaders, top analysts, and vendors to provide an objective view of what is happening in gamification. Burke cuts through the hype surrounding this important nascent technology to provide unbiased and practical analysis and advice to businesses and public sector organizations.

Lab, and co-founder of Gamification World Congress
