Open Book Management

It IS possible to have fun with finance! A radical approach to running a business, Open Book Management empowers everyone in an organization to actively participate in tracking metrics that directly contribute to business success. By tracking key numbers and learning the story behind the scoreboard results, employees get a real sense of how they directly impact the success of the business. And it works for all industries! Explore what Open Book is, why it works and what it looks like in the day-to-day.
