Every company engages in some form of game play, whether knowingly or not, yet most companies do not understand the detriment these games can have on productivity and profitability. In Games at Work, Mauricio Goldstein and Philip Read provide readers with a thorough overview of myriad games that are commonly present in organizations, as well as the kind of effects they can have on the overall workplace.

Although impossible to completely eliminate game play from any business, it is the goal of Goldstein and Read to increase awareness of organizational games using analysis and a multitude of real-world examples, and also by providing readers with strategies for recognizing and reducing game play.
