YOU GET RESULTS


THROUGH PROFESSIONAL GROWTH
BY CONNECTING
PEOPLE & NUMBERS

People acting together as a group can accomplish things which no individual acting alone could ever hope to bring about.

We connect the hearts and minds of employees by showing their contribution for a greater goal. We create value through professional growth of all employees involved. We create engagement and awareness through transparency, focus, personal development, and fun! We inspire by visualising and celebrating the achieved results.

FACTS

Through transparency of the relevant business numbers we create an environment of trust and clarity. By teaching employees the business we increase their engagement and their ability to improve. By allowing them to forecast the next numbers they learn the impact of their work. This will create ownership, engagement and innovation.

FOCUS

Starting with a compelling vision this will create inspiration. Educating the teams to develop their own goals per week, month and quarter in line with the annual organisational goals, this will create mutual focus. Everyone involved knows how to contribute to the overall goal. By showing the numbers on scoreboards everyone knows where the stand and the progress to be made to achieve the goals.

FAST

We believe development is learnt by application. By working on a strategy together, starting right away and taking small steps we create a learning environment. Management leads by example and gives employees the courage to create a learning environment where mistakes are allowed and are part of the education.

FUN

By allowing people to voice their suggestions for improvement and complimenting their successes we are creating an ambitious learning environment where successes will be celebrated. Team play and metaphors will create the buzz.

All our programmes are a subtle balance of leadership coaching and financial literacy training. Teams have dialogs to learn about the leading indicators for success of the organisation. Through real-life gamification of the projects the organisation reaches a continuous growing level of awareness and engagement. In co-creation we develop custom made programs to increase the value for your specific needs.

TRAINING

business

Are you interested to implement Open-Book Management in your company – contact us for the Open-Book Management programmes. A programme usually takes one year including 3 BusinessGames. The programme educates about the business financials, creates focus, achieves results, innovation, ownership, entrepreneurship and celebrates successes. We have extensive experience with other successful business models such as Lean, Agile, Holocracy and Semler. Specific elements of these models are part of our Open-Book Management programme.

It’s not the model that defines the success, but the attitude of all involved working with such a model.
