BY CONNECTING PEOPLE & NUMBERS
TO INFORM TO TAKE THE RIGHT ACTIONS
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Through our action learning program, which is based on the principles of Open-Book Management, we create Business Savvy teams. And our Business Games are the building blocks of all of these programs.
A Business Game starts with a two-day Opportunity Analysis workshop, where participants set a target for the next 100 days. This target is in line with an overall long-term goal to create added value across the organization.
Working in teams, participants decide on how best to achieve that target. Each team creates a scoreboard with a clear view on progress towards the target and the long-term goal. The scoreboards, crafted by the teams through a creative and fun process, are crucial to keeping track during daily and weekly updates. At the end of each Business Game, we evaluate the process for improvement, decide upon the next Business Game – and celebrate the success.
Business Games speed up both learning and business performance by incorporating forecasting as a learning tool and impacting the day-to-day activities of the organization. By making the right connections throughout the value chain, we draw out breakthrough insights, decisive actions and improved results.
During the 100 days we deliver a mixture of coaching, consultancy, advice and training for the employees as well as for the management. Our ultimate goal is that the employees will learn how to start their own Business Games so that they can continuously learn and improve the sustainable results of the organization.
We also measure the progress on People, Process and Profit. Our special Business Game App keeps everyone involved and drives the dialogue on results. Everyone learns how they can contribute to the overall performance of their company. In this way, we create top-line results together with enhanced engagement so that the organization and all its stakeholders can continue to grow. And we make it fun!

We connect changing behavior to continuous improvement.

Our programs start small and grow organically to ensure the right cultural fit before speeding up to increase the pace of the organization.
All people want to do right, unless they act out of fear
Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
