"Have You Worked with Companies Like Mine?"
Perhaps you LOVE the concepts we focused on: empowering employees by educating them on company financials.
But you might be thinking:
"That's great. But it just wouldn't work with my type of organization or in my industry."
We understand your skepticism. However, the tremendous success that we’ve helped companies of all types and all sizes achieve speaks for itself.
Overcoming Perceived Challenges to Playing The Game: A Success Story
When Greene County administrator Tim Smith came to The Great Game of Business® for assistance but expressed concerns about implementing the system in the governmental sector, he said, “Unlike a company like SRC, each of our departments has a different mission. We have struggled to find a way to bind ourselves together as we provide a whole spectrum of almost unrelated activities.”
Another concern was that since Greene County leadership is composed of 20 independently elected officials, no one person could make the decision to go forward with implementing The Great Game®.
Smith realized that the principles of transparency and financial literacy aren’t just important for running a company. They are necessary for an effective government as well. “Whether you are ‘for profit' or not, you can’t run an organization if you don’t know your numbers,” he said.
Despite the perceived challenges of implementing The Great Game in government, Smith and 50 other people from the county attended one of our workshops. After leaving the seminar, Greene County began implementing team Huddles within two weeks and identified MiniGames™ that could work across multiple departments, even with people who had no control over revenue.
Working in close partnership, we were able to come up with solutions for implementation and achieve a complete and positive change in the approach to budget planning and forecasting methods.
That’s merely one example, but there are countless other industries we’ve been able to help.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN YOU INTRODUCE TO THE GAME?
Sharon's story is inspiring... but it's not the only one like it. Every day we have the privilege of hearing the transformation stories of people whose lives have been changed because they've been taught the "secret language of business" and had the opportunity to take charge of their own destinies.
We estimate that there are 3 million "Sharon's" out there - we want to challenge the community to grow that number to 10 Million in 10 Years.
How many people can you introduce to The Game? Not just other businesses… there are so many ways to grow this community and transform lives:
- You can expand your own companies from within, giving more employees the chance to learn and grow.
- You can expose the concept to your peers in your markets, your local community, and your industry groups.
- You can expand even further by bringing these principles and practices of the Great Game of Business into the social sector - share with a local not-for-profit, educational institution… even government.
And let’s aim, together, to open the books and close the gaps…let's transform 10 million lives in 10 years.
