IMPLEMENTING THE GREAT GAME OF BUSINESS®
WHAT OTHER ARE SAYING

This is simply hands-down the best, most practical book you can read on how to make your company and your employees winners.

And, by the way, that is not puffery. This book is just flat-out awesome. If I could waive a magic wand, I would have every ESOP company make this its playbook.

Corey Rosen
Founder,
NCEO

What’s It About?

Perhaps the best way to describe our new book is with a quotation from 26 years ago:

“This book is for people who are fed up with management systems that don’t work. It’s for managers who have tried every motivational tool under the sun and still can’t get people to perform up to their abilities.

"It’s for CEOs who wonder why their companies don’t make more money even after they’ve installed all the latest bells and whistles from the business gurus. It’s for everyone who has ever dreamed of working in a company run on democratic principles—the same principles we demand in every other aspect of our lives.”

From The Great Game of Business, by Jack Stack and Bo Burlingham, 1992
