The Official Question Design Framework for the 2014 Loyalty and Gamification World Championships has been released.
We have separated the Loyalty and Gamification sections to clearly outline the educational skills and technical expertise for the World Championship event. Round 1 and Round 2 Questions will be based around this framework exclusively. Competitors will complete a variety of multiple-choice questions and case studies that test skills and expertise in Loyalty and Gamification. There will be a strong focus on exploring the real-life business approaches and techniques that drive improved user engagement among customers, employees and communities.
The dynamic overlap between the two industries is exciting. Expect some questions and case studies will focus on real-world independencies and interrelationships. Most questions will be case study multiple-choice format. Some may require written responses. Please check the website for free preparatory materials before Rounds 1.
The core of the 2014 curricula will be based around Retail, Financial Services, Mobile and Social Technologies and HR/Employee Engagement. Additional industry subject matters may be tested, but will not be the focus of the Question Design team.
Round 1 will be conducted online for 2 hours simultaneously worldwide on July 12, 2014. The Top 50% of participants will progress to Round 2 on July 26, 2014. The top competitors will progress to the World Finals, also held online, on August 9, 2014.
