Inc.edu: Open-Book Management: Incentivize Your Team and Profit in Business

In this engaging and interactive course, participants will learn the fundamentals of The Great Game of Business and take away tools to immediately begin implementing it into their own businesses. Based on Jack Stack’s best-selling book, The Great Game of Business is a unique and well-proven methodology and approach to running a company. In its simplest form, it gets everyone focused on the company’s success. Employee goals and accountabilities are tied directly to the success of the business. It teaches all employees the “Critical Numbers” of the company and how they can make a difference—both individually and as part of a team. In this fun and interactive workshop, participants learn to develop their own Great Game to keep people focused on a common goal, encourage employees to work together and build a winning team, create line of sight between team contributions and your company’s strategic goal, reinforce business and financial literacy training, and develop an engaged team that drives results and creates wins. Additional fee to participate.

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.
