The Open Organization

Shaping global conversation on open organizations

The Open Organization project was launched as an open knowledge community to research and articulate open characteristics to operationalise in organisations. We were an integral part of the leadership team stewarding the community, architecting community and concepts, and opening new creative channels to expand reach. Key contributions include characteristic articulation, maturity models, several books and the launching of the video channel, and governance models.
