The turnaround story of Springfield Remanufacturing Company (SRC) that began back in 1983 has become an inspiration to thousands of businesses around the world. The key to the system was using the analogy of a game – with rules, a scorecard, and rewards for winning – to help explain to every one in the company how they could really impact the bottom line. The premise became the foundation for The Great Game of Business (GGOB). At its heart, Great Game is all about financial sustainability.

For-profit businesses of every size, shape and industry have embraced that powerful message over the past 25 years. Now, the lessons learned by SRC have  spread into the nonprofit and public sectors. In recent years, leading organizations such as Missouri Southern State University (MSSU), Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks (BBBSO) and Greene County, Missouri have committed and embraced the open-book management principles taught by Great Game as a way to improve their own financial sustainability. They've been able to use the momentum to empower employees to step up and make a difference.


The Great Game of Business, Inc. saw the potential and has expanded our offerings to help public and nonprofit organizations learn how to adapt the proven principles of open-book management to become better stewards and enhance the sustainability of their organizations.  The public and nonprofit sectors who have worked closely with Great Game are seeing tremendous results.
