• The program lasts 16 weeks, from February 11 to May 31.
• Participants will receive rapid financial results and lasting cultural change. The Great Game creates a business of business people who act and feel like owners.
• The program costs $5,995 per participating business, which is significantly less than the normal price tag of $25,000 or more for the traditional game implementation.
• Ideal candidates are a small 417-land business, with 5 to 30 full-time employees.
• The CEO must participate, with up to four additional employees.
• To coach you through increasing your profits, ideal candidates must be able to produce a monthly budget and monthly financials in a timely manner.
• This is a game you play with your people, so you have to be open to sharing the financials with your staff in a transparent and honest manner.
• The five small businesses that are chosen will interact with and learn from each other, so you’ll need to be willing to share about your business in a group setting. To protect your business, only one company from an industry may participate.
• Great change takes commitment, including a time commitment. Over 16 weeks, you can expect 12 hours of personal coaching calls, 40 hours of self-paced online learning and homework on top of that.
• Participants must be available the morning of June 13 to attend Biz 417’s B-School and share about your experience as a panelist.
• Granted, The Great Game for Small Business isn’t for everyone. It’s for those business leaders who are looking for true transformation; who understand the upside of an engaged staff; who fantasize about a business life in which others share the burdens often reserved for owners and executive staff; who view prosperity as a journey, not just an outcome. The Great Game for Small Business may just be the Aha! moment you’ve been looking for.
