Editorial Reviews

Review

"The whole concept of The Great Game of Business 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, author of Good to Great
 
“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

"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

He is a popular public speaker and a practitioner of the open book model.
