The turnaround story of Springfield Remanufacturing Company (SRC) that began back in 1983 has become an inspiration to thousands of businesses around the world. The key was using the analogy of a game – with rules, a scorecard, and rewards for winning – to help explain to every individual in the company how they could literally impact the bottom line. That premise became the foundation for a management system that’s now known as The Great Game of Business (GGOB) and, at its heart, is all about financial sustainability.
And while for-profit businesses of every size, shape and sector have embraced that powerful message over the past 25 years, the lessons learned at SRC have now spread into the not-for-profit and public sectors as well. In recent months, leading organizations such as Missouri Southern State University (MSSU), Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks (BBBSO) and Greene Country, Missouri have all committed to embrace the open-book management lifestyle taught by the GGOB as a way to improve their own financial sustainability by empowering their members and associates to step up and make a difference.
That's why The Great Game of Business, Inc. is has expanded our offerings to help public and nonprofit organizations learn how to adapt the proven principles of open-book management to become better stewards and enhance the sustainability of their organizations. The public and nonprofit sectors that have worked closely with Great Game Coaches have seen tremendous success.
Katie Davis of Dream Big Consulting leads the training for The Great Game Experience for the Social Sectors. As the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks (BBBSO), Davis adapted The Great Game of Business model to help the nonprofit run more efficiently. After one year of full implementation in 2015, the nonprofit exceeded $1 million in revenue, which was a 22% increase over the previous year, and expanded services by 17%. Her organization was also named mid-size Agency of the Year by Big Brothers Big Sisters of America from 300+ agencies nationwide. Now, with the guidance of The Great Game team, she is teaching other nonprofits and public entities how to apply the Great Game’s philosophy to make their organizations successful.
