Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I need to participate?
The Bootcamp runs online. You need a connected computer or mobile phone to access the materials, checkin to the group & attend live sessions
What topics do you cover?
The Bootcamp improves key skills for cross-functional product teams: strategy, research, game & UX design, & product management.
What happens if I get busy?
You move at your own pace, & you get lifetime access to the videos, templates & private group.
What if I can’t make it to the live meetings?
We run these Bootcamps regularly – so if you miss one, attend the next one at your convenience.
I’m building an app/platform/enterprise system. Is Game Thinking only for games?
Game Thinking will improve any product experience that can be built around learning, mastery and empowerment. It works for games – and ALSO for products, apps, blogs, marketplaces, and events where the goal is long-term engagement.
This reminds me of Gamification – but I’m not hearing a lot about game mechanics. What’s the difference?
Gamification opens the door and gets people interested in the power of games. Game Thinking is the next step. You’ll learn how to bring your ideas to life like a game designer, and create Learning Loops that empower your players
Will my employer cover the cost?
If your company has a training budget, this should be easy to cover. Participating will enhance your product design and management skills – and your entire team will benefit from the techniques you bring back to the company.
Is this a good fit for me?
It’s all about what kind of outcomes you’re looking for. If you want to super-charge your product innovation skills, find product/market fit faster than you thought possible, and leverage the deeper underlying power of games – this is for you.
