One company which knows all about building a culture of ownership is SRC Holdings Corporation, a US company which has been employee owned for 30 years and has become a “management mecca” for other companies wanting to learn the secret of their Open Book Management. You can hear more about the SRC story here: /http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Do9zeFpBoPI
Open book management isn’t just about sharing information but involves educating everyone on the business, giving them influence over how the company is run and providing them a stake in the financial outcome, good or bad.
Find out how you can apply these principles at a free taster workshop in Glasgow from 3-6pm on 21st February (http://www.greatgameuk.com/events/).
The workshop will introduce you to the concept of open book management and explain how to build a company where everyone “thinks, feels and acts like a business owner”. It’s also very practical as participants will get the chance to design MiniGame™ which is a self-funding, short-term incentive plan designed to rapidly correct a weakness or pursue an opportunity within their organisation.
Any company can benefit from the learning at this workshop. Book your place by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
