Capitalism Reimagined - 5-Jul-28-2020-02-34-15-29-PM


As the gap between the haves and the have-nots continues to grow, Capitalism is taking the fall for a broken system and shattered dreams.

We contend that the problem is not with Capitalism itself, but with an antiquated notion of hierarchy, wealth, and power, perpetuated by greed and indifferent to the needs of the everyday person.  A system that keeps the “secret” language of business out of reach of the common worker, and the hope of a better life, an improbable dream.

But a growing movement of forward-thinking companies have reimagined Capitalism and the transformational power businesses can have on individuals and communities. For organizations that subscribe to this way of thinking and play The Great Game of Business, they see how Capitalism can actually save the American Dream.

These companies:

  • understand that leadership is not reserved for top management
  • believe that everyone benefits when employees can track the financial impact their efforts have on the business' bottom line
  • provide opportunities for lasting change through education, involvement,  and a stake in the outcome for ALL employees
  • know that you don’t have to choose between being successful and treating people well - It’s Money. It’s People. It’s Both.

About two years ago, we recommitted ourselves to the Great Game of Business “operating system” of open-book management. We did this for a variety of reasons but one of the most important was our desire to really lean into the HIP process. Our leadership team felt that this was an important element of the GGOB on which we had not executed well when we initially adopted the GGOB process in 2013. 

We knew that we could not do this on our own so we asked the GGOB to provide a coach for us and we were fortunate to get Rich Armstrong to lead us through this process. Rich is an expert at HIP and he took time to explain “the why” behind the HIP process and how important it is to help a company plan its future and identify contingencies so that you stay on plan. He also emphasized the importance of creating a rhythm for meeting to discuss our one, three and five year plans. This has been extraordinarily helpful to our team.
