Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the early 1980s, Springfield Remanufacturing    Corporation (SRC) in Springfield, Missouri, was a    near bankrupt division of International Harvester.    That's when a green young manager, Jack Stack,     took over and turned it around. He didn't know how to    " manage" a company, but he did know about the    principal, of athletic competition and democracy:     keeping score, having fun, playing fair, providing    choice, and having a voice. With these principals    he created his own style of management --    open-book management. The key is to let everyone in on    financial decisions. At SRC, everyone learns how to    read a P& L — even those without a high school    education know how much the toilet paper they use    cuts into profits. SRC people have a piece of the    action and a vote in company matters. Imagine    having a vote on your bonus and on what businesses the    company should be in. SRC restored the dignity of    economic freedom to its people. Stack's    " open-book management" is the key — a system    which, as he describes it here, is literally    a game, and one so simple anyone can use    it. As part of the Currency paperback line, the    book includes a " User's Guide" — an    introduction and discussion guide created for the    paperback by the author — to help readers make    practical use of the book's ideas. Jack Stack is the    president and CEO of the SpringfieldRemanufacturing    Corporation, in Springfield, Missouri. The recipient    of the 1993 Business Enterprise Trust Award, Jack    speaks throughout the country on The    Great Game Of Business and Open    Book Management.

Synopsis:

"This is the  brilliant story of the most radical act committed by a  businessman in this century. You can't run or manage  your business the old way once you read  The Great Game." — Paul Hawken
