Each year for the last 29 years, this community of “game changers” have gathered together from around the world to learn, share, and celebrate the principles and practices of The Great Game of Business management operating system at the world’s largest conference on open-book management.

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.

What people are saying-2

Being my very first experience with this conference and being very new to the GGOB, I was impressed by the excitement, positive vibe, and inspirational stories of companies that play the game.

The energy of other Great Gamers in a year of crisis was refreshing. It's great to see how others use the game in their business and where they are on their journey.

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.
