GGOB practitioners videos

We love to see and hear the inside stories of companies putting the principles and practices of The Great Game of Business® to work in their organizations, which is why we love to find videos by and about Great Game practitioners! As we revealed at the 2018 Gathering of Games Conference, we have goal to impact 10 million lives in the next 10 years in the #sharonthedream campaign. Here are three of our favorite videos representing three very different stories of how the Great Game has made a difference across the globe...

1. Open-Book Management on Safari 

This video demonstrates GGOB's global application and impact through an artisan co-op in rural South Africa. Here is a local craft center's Great Game transformation—from employees knowing nothing about running a business to sustainability and economic independence resulting in tremendous success for the craft center and its employees.


2. "Why We Lost The Game"

Not every Great Game™ practitioner can speak eloquently about the challenges of implementing and sustaining open-book management.  In this video, our dear friend, the late Joe Jenkins presents his story about how his family-run business, Jenkins Diesel, picked up (and fumbled a few times) Great Game practices. In this video Joe lends some hard-earned business advice paired with homespun wisdom that will have you wishing you had seen him present in person.

3. The Great Game of Business at Practice Velocity

Implementing Great Game practices has transformed performance and results at Practice Velocity Urgent Care Solutions (now known as Experity). This video shows how this Illinois company has successfully incorporated MiniGames™ into their daily practices to attack problems, used Huddles to share information among the entire company, and kept more accurate and up-to-date financials. 

Their dedication to the Game and amazing cultural and financial results earned them a spot on the 2017 & 2018 Great Game All-Star Team.

About The Great Game of Business

Our approach to running a company was developed to help close one of the biggest gaps in business: the gap between managers and employees. We call our open-book approach The Great Game of Business. What lies at the heart of The Game is a very simple proposition: The best, most efficient, most profitable way to operate a business is to give everybody in the company a voice in saying how the company is run and a stake in the outcome. Let us teach you how to develop a culture of ownership, where employees think, act and feel like owners.
