Brian Scudamore (Founder and CEO/1-800-GOT-JUNK? & O2E Brands)This book showed me the importance of transparency in business (making everyone understand the “game” of business”), and then how essential it is to give your employees some skin in the game. This book is why we adopted a profit-sharing program at O2E Brands called GGOB (Great Game of Business).
Paul Hawken (Co-founder/Project Drawdown)The brilliant story of the most radical act committed by a businessman in this century.
In the early 1980s, springfield remanufacturing corporation (src) in springfield, missouri, was a near bankrupt division of international harvester. Today it's one of the most successful and competitive companies in the united states, with a share price 3000 times what it was thirty years ago. This miracle turnaround is all down to one man, jack stack, and his revolutionary system of open-book management, in which every employee understands the company's key figures, can act on them and has a real stake in the business. In stack's own words: 'when employees think, act and feel like owners ...everybody wins.' as a management strategy, 'the great game of business' is so simple and effective that it's been taken up by companies from intel to harley davidson.
