Right now, there is at least one financial or operational number in your company that if improved in the short term would have a dramatic effect on your business. It might be overtime, purchase price variance, sales, shipping expense, number of referrals – or one of many other line items.
Do your people understand how important that number is to the business? Do you have a plan to get them actively engaged in improving that number? Mini-Games™ provide your team with the focus to do just that.
Mini-Games™ are small-scale incentive plans designed to correct a weakness or pursue an opportunity within your company. There is a goal, a scoreboard and a reward for winning.
This highly interactive training session will give you the knowledge and confidence to design and apply effective Mini-Games™.
You’ll learn to develop Mini-Games™ that:
- Keep people focused on a common goal
- Encourage employees to work together instead of against each other
- Create line of sight between individual contribution and The Big Picture
- Target day-to-day improvements that add up to year-end success
- Reinforce business and financial literacy training
- Develop a winning attitude
- Get results and create wins
Participants will directly test their knowledge by breaking into groups to create Mini-Games™ ready to be implemented in your company producing measurable and sustainable results.
Who Should Attend
- Companies interested in measurably improving an operational or financial number within the business.
- Companies interested in opening the books, but looking to get started on a small scale.
- Companies actively practicing The Great Game of Business that need a refresher on Mini-Games or help in making Mini-Games more effective(and fun!) in their organization.
The Mini-Games Team Design workshop includes three hours of instruction/design time and workbooks for each participant.
"Great Game companies play Mini-Games to affect change, educate employees, build teamwork and develop a winning attitude among their workforce. Mini-Games tap into our human desire to contribute and win. When employees play together as a team, they can do almost anything. They can eliminate weaknesses, exploit new opportunities, drive competitive advantage, fatten the bottom line, and reap financial rewards. Together." -Jack Stack
