West Paw Design

Company Background

West Paw Design is a world-class manufacturer of eco-friendly and high-quality pet toys and beds based in Bozeman, Montana. The company wanted to find a way to distribute leadership and decision-making to all of its associates.

Great Game Solutions

Implement financial literacy training and weekly huddles to discuss the latest updates to the P&L, cash flow statement, and balance sheet. West Paw also implemented a more formal collective decision-making process using High-Involvement Planning and, most recently, a quarterly bonus program.


  • After losing money in 2012, the company has grown rapidly, and profitably, ever since it began playing the GGOB.
  • In early 2015, with increased profits and a healthy balance sheet, West Paw Design has started to implement a profit sharing, or “Gainsharing” program with its employees.
