“The Great Game of Business is one of the top 10 most important business books for all growth-minded company leaders to read.  Why?  It details how to create the critically important “line of sight” every employee needs to be fully engaged and driving toward a common goal.  And Jack’s book details how to get everyone in your company focused with one eye on the financial impact of their decisions.  Then watch profits and cash soar.”

-Verne Harnish, CEO of Gazelles and author of The Greatest Business Decisions of All Time

Introducing the Internationally Acclaimed Great Game of Business Master Business Course

The Great Game of Business takes the concept of open-book management (OBM) - creating transparency by sharing financial information with employees - to another level.

It gamifies it, helping each person in your company to act like an owner and play a real role in everyone's success!

Unlike other methodologies, The Great Game Of Business is built to help you grow your business, AND improve the lives and fortunes of every member of your organization!

At the core of this program, Jack Stack and Steve Baker will help you implement and distill the practical 10-step process to create an atmosphere in which every employee feels like an owner of the company. This means opening up the books to develop absolute financial transparency and involving your employees heavily in planning the company’s future.

 

A proven, thoroughly tested toolkit to start playing
The Great Game of Business

The program is based on three core components, all centered around the critical number for the company.
As you go through this program, you’ll learn about each of the core components which is accompanied by practical tools that will help you implement!

 

MicrosoftTeams-image (3)

Know and Teach the Rules

Learn how to build trust and mutual respect throughout the company by teaching the base of financial literacy and align your team around the Critical Number. You'll learn how to involve your team in High Involvement Planning ™ so they want to buy in.

Follow the Action and Keep Score

Learn how to help your team keep the score – an essential part of being winner-focused. You’ll also learn how to effectively communicate and instill an action-oriented culture that compels your employees to do their best and own their work.

Provide A Stake in the Outcome®

Tie it all together by inspiring the motivation in your employees through quick wins, reward and recognition programs, and financial incentives.

By the end of this program you can expect...

Recurso 1@3x
wealth@3x
ignorance@3x

Enhanced teamwork

When employees have the same objectives and share in the same well-designed financial incentive program, they support one another, pull together, and do whatever it takes to achieve those objectives. Engage them by giving them A Stake in the Outcome®.

The ability to generate & spread wealth

To ensure prosperity, employees must accomplish one big yearly goal: to grow corporate earnings. This long-term equity game places employees’ fiscal fate directly in their own hands, prompting them to become smarter, more innovative owners. The Game allows you to create and share productivity gains as they’re made throughout the year.

To end organizational ignorance

Ignorance can kill companies; awareness can grow them. The Game teaches everyone how your business works—and why moving the numbers in the right direction puts more money in their pockets. Rally your team around the common goal.

innovation@3x
satisfaction@3x

Continuous innovation

The Great Game encourages employees to focus on the present and to work on the business at hand. This frees managers to work on all the issues on the horizon. That’s how decision-makers stay in control. By focusing laser-like on the future, they’re able to innovate on the fly, eliminate surprises and deliver consistently good results. But to win over the long haul, every department or team must continually improve its processes and procedures.

Educated people and a blueprint for higher job satisfaction

Customized, on-the-job training works best because it’s hands-on and rooted in reality. And the lessons stick because the subject matter is relevant; the approach is disarming and informal; the exchange of knowledge and information is frequent and direct. It enables everyone to seek ways to upgrade jobs and make work more fun and profitable.

Weekly Live Group Coaching Sessions
With Steve, you make a plan for exactly how to implement it. We don't leave you to plan on your own. You show up weekly for the group coaching sessions to get your specific questions answered and focus on the next steps for implementation. We'll show you what works so you don't fall into bad habits.

Community Networking, Masterminding, & Peer Support

The community is built of other growth-minded leaders from companies around the world. You have the opportunity to connect and access a support system during the implementation process. The more you can collaborate with like-minded peers at your level with similar business problems, issues, and opportunities, the more your learning and action accelerate.
We use this same process methodically every week  – and it's how we've helped thousands of companies in 70+ countries. This process is powerful, and why we can say we have implementation rates of around 70%.

Entrepreneurs and business leaders who work with us not only understand "how" to make the changes needed in their companies, they are enabled to finally "make" the changes, step-by-step, rapidly, without faltering or losing steam.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a limit of seats per business?

This course is for leadership and their team. We encourage you to bring up as much of your team to this program.  We’ve seen the most spectacular results when the entire team signed up, so if you want to add more members of the organization, we are in full support. Just let us know! There’s no limit of seats per business. 
 
If you have eight or more individuals who you want involved, consider a customized, private course designed specifically for your business.

Is Growth Institute a University? Can I count the course towards university credits?

We are an official Corporate and Digital Learning Institution but not technically a university. We are regulated and accredited by an AdvancED. This means that we are audited by strict guidelines that ensure quality of learning. The Master Course is an accredited certificate program. It is not the equivalent of a University’s Degree. The acceptance of Master Courses as university credit would fully depend on the institution granting your degree.

 

What can I do if I miss the live sessions with the coach or author of the class?

All our live sessions with authors and coaches are recorded and available on your learning platform. You will find them following the same steps mentioned in the reminder you receive a few days before the live classes.
 
- I’ll be traveling/ busy during a lot of the live sessions and I’m concerned that I’ll fall behind. - 
 
If you will be traveling, you can always dial in from wherever you are. You don’t have to be suited up in the office to participate in the live sessions. If you are 100% sure that you will miss the class, you can still submit your question/ challenge/ feedback and we’ll discuss it during the workshop or mastermind. As mentioned above, you’ll get the recordings of all the live sessions to keep for 12 months after the course end date. 

What if I'm not satisfied with the course? What is your refund policy?

Get access to the entire program , go through everything, use it in your business, and if at the end of going through the process for 30 days and 3 full live sessions, you decide it’s not for you, let us know and we'll give you a full refund. No Questions Asked. So, why not simply give it a try and see for yourself how powerful this program can be for you, your team, and your business. You have freedom to gain and nothing to lose.

Here’s why we give this kind of guarantee:

You know that to succeed in anything in life you have to commit. To get your business to the next level everyone on your team also needs to commit. This is your chance to make a commitment that will create reverberations and results for years to come.
