At the 25th Annual Gathering of Games Conference, The Great Game of Business will celebrate the 17th Annual All-Star Awards. These prestigious awards recognize and celebrate the remarkable achievements of companies from around the globe that have fully embraced the principles of open-book management and The Great Game of Business, and have demonstrated outstanding results.
The inspiration for the All-Star Awards came from the pioneers of open-book management themselves. Open-book management wasn’t theorized in a business school or dreamed up at some consulting think tank – it was created by everyday businesspeople much like you. Propelled by a handful of innovative companies, a whole new way of thinking about business was born. The All-Star Awards were created seventeen years ago to highlight the companies on the leading edge of this innovative management practice, who have discovered first-hand that when you harness the collective wisdom of your people, great things can and do happen.
But as Great Game practitioners know – it’s not just about generating profits, cash and wealth, but also about distributing it for the good of everyone involved. Therefore, All-Star players must embody a spirit of generosity and a willingness to openly spread the word to help others succeed. That is the essence of the All-Star Awards!
In addition to the coveted All-Star Achievement Award, The Great Game of Business will also confer three additional awards:
- Rookie of the Year – This award recognizes the companies that have been practicing open- book management and The Great Game of Business for less than two years, but have achieved some remarkable results.
- Pioneer Award – This award honors an organization that is the first in their field to implement and practice the methodology of The Great Game of Business and open-book management, and do so at a high level.
- Hall of Fame Inductee – The Hall of Fame honors organizations that have operated using the principles of open-book management for more than a decade with lasting, proven results and have demonstrated a willingness to spread the word on open-book management in order to help others succeed.
