It’s Money. The most important goals in business are making money and generating cash. What if everyone in your company understood that, and knew how they were connected to it? The Great Game of Business takes these two critical goals and envelopes them in a business operating system that keeps both as a central focus in the minds of your employees.
It’s People. The Great Game of Business is the methodology and integrated tools proven to systematically engage your people to drive profitability and sustainability. “The best, most efficient, most profitable way to operate a business is to give everyone in the company a voice in how it’s run and a stake in the financial outcome—good or bad,” insists Jack Stack, CEO of SRC Holdings, father of open-book management, and author of The Great Game of Business. Because, you see, it’s not just about money. And it’s not just about people. It’s both!
It’s Both! The Great Game of Business is the only business operating system that is proven to drive rapid financial results and lasting cultural change. While it’s possible to find organizations that have demonstrated an ability to produce a high degree of financial success without a focus on its people, invariably the success is short-lived. The only way to secure sustainable financial results is through a commitment to having an engaged team. And while there are arguably multiple ways to engage your staff, The Great Game of Business ensures a sustainable level of engagement by giving your team a stake in the company’s—and their own—financial future.
The Great Game of Business is a way of running a company that gets everyone focused on helping the business be successful. Employees’ goals and accountability are tied directly to the success of the company. It teaches all employees the Critical Numbers of the company and how they can make a difference – both individually and as part of a team.
Lots of people call GGOB “Open Book Management.” Heck, those of us associated with GGOB even use that term. But it’s so much more than that. GGOB is a system of learning and a culture of success, and not just about sharing and understanding numbers. It’s certainly more than just opening the books.
By working on their strengths year after year – while also having the courage to work on their biggest weaknesses – GGOB companies get stronger. And the success becomes contagious
GGOB is one of the only management systems that consistently sticks to the ultimate, perpetual, real yardstick of business success: Your financials. Financial statements have always been there and always will be. So, why not adopt a management system that uses your own financials as your measure of true business success?

Financial Literacy Training
Financial Literacy + Engaged Employees = Improved Financial Results
Finance, accounting and money – these make up the language of business. Knowing how your organization makes money, having a working knowledge of financial statements, and being conversant with financial terms are all necessary skills for effective business management, regardless of the organization’s type or size. I can help you more comfortable with financial concepts and help you use financial information to make informed decisions.
Financial transparency is about knowing the score, which is a good start. But financial literacy is about understanding the score. We can give your leadership team and your rank-and-file staff the skills they need to help your business succeed – to know, understand and actually change the score.
