How SRC is Using The Game to Tackle its Critical Number: People
Most companies these days are struggling to find enough people to chase all the opportunities in front of them. SRC, the birthplace of the Great Game of Business®, is no exception. That’s why SRC Holdings’ CEO Jack Stack raised a lot of questions among attendees at last year’s Gathering of Games when he announced that SRC’s Critical Number™ for 2019 was going to be “people.”
Jack’s point was that if SRC is going to be successful in the long run, it needs to become a better competitor in the “War for Talent.” One way to do so is for SRC to leverage The Game to create a line of sight where everyone inside the organization is focused on that goal. By making people their Critical Number, this is no longer just a problem for the human resource department to overcome: it becomes the focus for the entire company.
