Publisher Comments:

In the early 1980s, Springfield RemanufacturingCorporation (SRC) in Springfield, Missouri, was anear 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 theprincipal, of athletic competition and democracy:keeping score, having fun, playing fair, providingchoice, and having a voice. With these principalshe created his own style of management --open-book management. The key is to let everyone in onfinancial decisions. At SRC, everyone learns how toread a P&L — even those without a high school education know how much the toilet paper they usecuts into profits. SRC people have a piece of theaction and a vote in company matters. Imaginehaving a vote on your bonus and on what businesses thecompany should be in. SRC restored the dignity ofeconomic freedom to its people. Stack's"open-book management" is the key — a systemwhich, as he describes it here, is literallya game, and one so simple anyone can useit. As part of the Currency paperback line, thebook includes a "User's Guide" — anintroduction and discussion guide created for thepaperback by the author — to help readers makepractical use of the book's ideas. Jack Stack is thepresident and CEO of the Springfield RemanufacturingCorporation, in Springfield, Missouri. The recipientof the 1993 Business Enterprise Trust Award, Jackspeaks throughout the country on TheGreat Game Of Business and OpenBook Management.
