Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Jack Stack, dubbed “The Father of open-book management,” is slated to keynote at the 2013 Leadership Summit, presented by FORTUNE which hosts the top thought leaders, best-selling authors, and practitioners in leadership, strategy, management, HR and execution.
During his keynote, Stack will discuss his business philosophy, “The Great Game of Business” which started a business revolution in the early 90s. He’ll explain how his company empowered employees to think and act like owners by teaching them how business works, holding them accountable and providing them a stake in the outcome.
Stack originally gained notoriety in the business world after Inc. Magazine featured the amazing turnaround of his company, now SRC Holdings. With the help of Bo Burlingham, Stack wrote a book about this experience, The Great Game of Business which will be re-released for its 20th Anniversary in July, 2013.
“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,” says Jim Collins, author of Good to Great.
The Great Game of Business philosophy has been coined “the most sensible way to run a company”. For more than two decades, business leaders have visited Stack’s company to learn how to implement the philosophy in their own business.
The 2013 Leadership Summit, presented by FORTUNE will be held May 9-10, 2013 at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida and will feature other renowned speakers including Verne Harnish and Dan Pink.
