The Game Outcomes Project: How Teamwork, Leadership, and Culture Drive Results
Paul Tozour (Mothership Entertainment)
The 2014-15 Game Outcomes Project was a first-of-its-kind study that correlated teamwork, leadership, and an array of cultural factors with discrete project outcomes.
The study found unexpectedly strong and consistent correlations between input factors such as teamwork, leadership, crunch/overtime, respect, and trust, and project outcomes such as MetaCritic scores, project delays, achievement of project goals, and return-on-investment (ROI).
This talk will introduce the 2014-15 Game Outcomes Project, discuss the motivation for the project, the survey design, all the major findings, the limitations (what we can prove, and what we cannot), and also cover some additional findings not covered in the original published study results.
