It's time to reinvent management. You can help.

“We need to create work environments that are as immersive and involving as the best video games.”

Human beings are most productive when work feels like play.

Among other things, this will require organizations to better align personal interests and professional responsibilities, to take the drudgery out of work, and to grant employees more control over what they work on.
