Good gamers, good managers?

An interesting study from the Review of Managerial Science which looks at gaming performance and it's potential correlation with real world problem solving performance.

Under controlled laboratory conditions, we asked forty business students to play the Civilization game and to participate in a series of assessment exercises. We find that students who had high scores in the game had better skills related to problem-solving and organizing and planning than the students who had low scores.

Maybe a gaming session should be part of the interview process for manager-level roles?
