Greene County, Missouri, implemented and practices the Great Game of Government in an effort to create widespread financial literacy among all County employees. Greene County is one of the first government organizations to adapt Jack Stack's book, “The Great Game of Business,” which emphasizes open-book management. The Great Game of Business office, part of Springfield Remanufacturing Corporation, (SRC), in Springfield, Missouri, provided the training, while Greene County employees accepted the culture change and implemented open-book management’s new way of viewing the County. Raising awareness of how each employees’ actions impact the County’s bottom line has produced tremendous savings for their departments or offices, as well as for the County as a whole.
