Gamification has developed into a methodology of its own to drive innovation and to foster values-based innovation cultures within organisations. We explore this new field through literature review and interviews with innovation managers. We synthesise knowledge, formulate management guidelines, and reveal the potential for the gamification of values-based innovation and organisational culture development.

Strategic foresight, sustainability management and innovation management, each have an important role to play in solving the grand challenges of our times. However, we are missing an integrated approach in theory and business practice. Based on a series of expert interviews and recent literature, we distinguish between exploratory, strategic and normative scenarios and take first steps towards an integrated sustainability foresight.

This book introduces an exciting, still nascent superpower: Using, repurposing and creating games that will help to solve the great societal and organisational challenges, games that actually drive innovation, engage stakeholders and facilitate experimentation. The book features 36 gamification design patterns and a rich collection of customizable games and materials for training and teaching.
In this issue of ServiceToday, editor Michael Braun talks with Henning Breuer about the connection between value orientation and sustainable value creation, entrepreneurial innovations and the role of customer. Find out more how to translate an understanding of their values into multi-dimensional value creation.

This book provides state-of-the-art insights on sustainable value creation. Our chapter introduces the Business Innovation Kit to model values-based business. We discuss how to work with values in the context of business development, and show different application fields for opportunitiy seeking organizations. We distinguish between five maturity levels and eight business case drivers for sustainability-oriented innovation.
