      The Best Game of All: Free Your Time, Free Your Team & Run a Great Company

      Every meeting, every business process, and every product or service is a game.

      You can apply game design principles to make each a game worth playing.

      Some of the world's greatest companies are intentionally structured as games for their employees. Others follow the principles that make games great, without realizing those principles apply equally to games and organizations.

      If you participate, you will learn:

      • how to give your whole company – from hands-on teams & individuals to the board – the same productivity and rapid learning as a great agile software development team
      • how to quickly and easily design any processes so they are consistent in quality and fun to deliver
      • how to use cross-functional teams, two-way linking, consent decisions, circle meetings, and applied cybernetics in your specific company

      Of course, mastering these topics is a life-long practice, but the basics are easy and we will ensure you know what you need to keep developing your skills and the game of your business over time.

      We will also give you months of follow-up support to ensure you have guidance and mentoring as you apply what you have learned -- this package is worth far more than its price tag, but we love great games and we find that once people have worked with us once they are much more likely to play again.

      We turn companies into games everyone wants to play, with clear goals, clear feedback, clear rules, and freedom to participate fully – for customers, and also for founders, employees and investors.

      You can too.
