When I was a kid, I loved video games. (I know, I know – please feign your surprise.)

When I wasn’t beating the expert challenge of Roller Coaster Tycoon or building a 20-house compound in Sims, I spent an inordinate amount of time on the MMORPG that changed everything: RuneScape.

If you had a social life during the original RuneScape era, let me catch you up…

Like real life, RuneScape didn’t have a set direction.

Each pixelated online character has a level and a wide array of skills – ranging from attacking to fishing to woodcutting – that they can level up through using those skills, questing, and adventuring.

I loved it.

Beyond learning to type at 200+ WPM, RuneScape taught me lessons in math, commerce, and a pile of random medieval weaponry trivia.

Speaking of which…do you remember the “nostalgia season” of COVID-19?

Around that time, I re-created accounts on some of my favorite old games, including RuneScape…

I was surprised to find out that they didn’t “spark joy” in the way they did in my 10-year-old mind.

I remember turning to my partner and saying, “This honestly feels just like the process-building we do at work…”

That’s when I realized I’d come full circle.

The way we teach (and practice) process-building at ProcessDriven is like a game. It’s like the skill tree of RuneScape 3 or the Financial Summary in Roller Coaster Tycoon 2.

The final pillar of the ProcessDriven Approach™ relies on the same concepts as a video game’s character: clear, visual stats that we “level up” through process, experiments, and documentation.

It’s hard to explain in words… Let me just show you in a quick video clip.
