Your company culture, a new board game, and all the ways they relate.

Why is that important for business? 

A new board game allows people to make choices that would benefit everyone. And more people were interested in taking that choice – to advance the game for everyone – instead of just progressing closer to the ultimate goal of winning. People who played the game chose collaboration over playing simply for the objective of winning. Which makes us think about company culture.  

What are the other strategies and ways that you can create a company culture, realizing that your department can’t win at the expense of other people at the company?

If you aren’t aware of this, you can easily accidentally incentivize the wrong behaviors. 

It’s also important that the rules – of the game or the culture – not be arbitrary and make natural sense. This requires a full understanding of the “if-then” – it requires a lot of transparency.
