Today I got to deploy a system to my team that opens up a whole new world of fun: coins.
Measurable Genius team members can collect coins in a number of ways: writing new processes, editing existing ones, leaving comments, and doing stuff in the company they’re going to do anyways.
That’s just the basics though…
Now I have a system we can use to build all different types of programs which reward team members for doing stuff which helps move the company and our culture forwards.

People love games though.
