The expanded and fully updated edition of the business classic that started a global trend - the definitive account from the man who wrote the book on 'Open-Book Management'. Now available in paperback.
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.
The whole concept is beautiful - consistency, alignment, and transparency, infused with core values and brought to life with powerful mechanisms. It is inspired and inspiring, a classic Jim Collins
