Jack Stack - Change the Game

Jack Stack's new book: Change the Game

We wrote Change the Game for those of you who continue to seek a brighter side of capitalism, one that truly transforms lives for the better. This book is about hope: no matter how grim things look, you can make them better.... That's what the American dream is all about.

Capitalism in its traditional form is under attack. Solutions from both sides are extreme and unsustainable. But there is a revolution going on in business; a movement that is teaching the have-nots how the haves make it. It’s about creating and distributing wealth equitably as a way to close those gaps in prosperity that plague our society. It’s about changing the game.

As a follow up to his 1993 best-selling book The Great Game of Business, which chronicles the dramatic come-back story of SRC and the origins of "open-book management," Jack Stack and co-author Darren Dahl write about "the brighter side of capitalism" in Change the Game.

Stack and Bo Burlingham wrote The Great Game of Business to detail the leadership system of the same name that developed out of necessity in the early days of SRC; the new book provides a "proof of concept" that the Great Game system really works. Change The Game is filled with case studies of businesses in all sectors that have seen the positive effects of SRC's brand of open-book management - a system that shares financial information with employees at all levels, teaches them how they fit in to the overall performance of the company, and makes work fun and rewarding for everyone who plays, from the president down to the janitor.

Highlighting stories of the organizations and individuals who have been transformed by The Great Game of Business, Change the Game demonstrates that business truly is the catalyst for lasting change. "Businesses have the potential to make a positive difference in the world," says Stack, CEO of Missouri-based SRC. "They have a tremendous opportunity to empower people to pursue their dreams - and that benefits our society as a whole."

Stack will share key concepts from the book when he keynotes at the 27th Annual Gathering of Games, September 4-6 at the Hilton Anatole Dallas. The Gathering, the world's largest conference on open-book management, brings together over 700 business leaders and key influencers from companies of all sizes and industries from around the world. Named one of “7 ‘Can’t Miss’ Conferences for Entrepreneurs” by Forbes, the event features educational sessions, networking opportunities, and insights from business leaders practicing open-book, management experts and Great Game of Business implementation coaches. The conference will close with a keynote from serial entrepreneur and New York Times best-selling author Kevin Kruse. Conference participants will receive a copy of Stack's Change the Game, as well as Kruse's 'Great Leaders Have No Rules,' released April 2019.
