Situation We use quite a lot of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure and evaluate our ITIL processes (incident, problem and change). Examples are
Number of tickets depending on the status and current assignee
Number of test cases and status
Currently they are being visualized by plain charts and lists. Our environment: Grafana (Dashboard), JIRA, OTRS (Ticketing systems), HPALM (Testing Tool)
Problem These plain numbers and their visualization does not increase the team’s motivation to fulfill or even better exceed the processes. Fulfilling KPIs does not stimulate anyone’s ambition. We would like to transform the process into a game and by trying to win the game the team automatically perfects these processes. For example within a former Dashboard we visualized our ticketing workflow by a soccer field: assigning an issue was shown by passing the ball, and finishing an item was shown as a goal. So winning the match meant finalizing as many tickets as possible. We must of course ensure that the quality does not suffer the ambition of winning. This must be part of the playing rules.
Aims of the project
Valuation and prioritization of our current KPIs:
Do they help to steer the operational processes? Which ones are the most important KPIs? Are relevant KPIs missing?
Development of various ideas of gamification approaches. These approaches can either be cooperative or competitive.
Implementation of at least one gamification approach
Target group (students) For this project, we are looking for highly motivated students in computer science who are interested in making operation more entertaining and who love to think about creative new ways to work with KPIs.
