Game Progression in Enterprise

Thought this gaming post was interesting and obvious. When someone plays a game one progresses, first in their physical interaction with a game ... a syntactic progression ... and secondly in a progression in their character ... a semantic-and-beyond progression. As I was reading this I was thinking, isn't this how someone trains in a new role. First understanding where things are, rules, the motions, what works. Next they learn how these motions interact with the world being manipulated. Yes, when we move to a new role we bring with us aspects of experience in a domain. Yet still the kinds of things we still need to succeed. Could be a template for success in a role, or even a way to intermix games with the real world we need to deal with, filling in what we need to know.
