He also listed out the concepts and lessons that we learn from those games.
The session started with an interesting conversation about Management related activities which we do in our day-to-day life, without realizing that these are management concepts. And the best part was, the students learnt engagement and motivation, by using game mechanics that were taught by the Speaker, through certain games.
