Welcome! I’m David McAdams and this is GameChangerFiles.com, the website + blog that accompanies my book “GAME-CHANGER: Game Theory and the Art of Transforming Strategic Situations”. The best way to get started using this site depends on where you’re coming from:
1. “Somebody recommended that I check out this site. I have no idea what to expect.”
Start by clicking on the “Files” image. This will give you a sense of the variety and interest of the game-theory applications (called “Game-Changer Files”) that are explored here and in the “Game-Changer” book. While you’re at it, click on the “Game-Changer” image and the “Mission” image, to learn about what I refer to as the Game-Changer Mission. Then decide if you’re “game” for the challenge!
2. “I just finished reading ‘GAME-CHANGER.’ Wow, that was FUN! I can’t wait to find out what’s been happening in the Game-Changer Files, and I’m curious what McAdams is thinking about now.”
3. “I just finished reading ‘GAME-CHANGER.’ Wow, that was INSPIRING! I can’t wait to find out how I can become a Game-Changer myself.”
Thank you for embracing the Game-Changer Mission! You are the reason why I wrote the book and created this site. Click on the “Game-Changer” image and the “Mission” image, focusing especially on the “How to Create Your Own Game-Changer File” material. Then click on the “What YOU Can Do” image to see some of what I envision we can achieve together. Then think about what you can do to push this purpose forward, engaging your own pressing strategic challenges and building your own Game-Changer communities. (And please be in touch.)
