Before the first week of the new year ends, I thought I would announce my involvement in The Open Organization Workbook, published in early December 2017. I wrote two of the section introductions “What is Collaboration?”(Unit 4) and “What is Community?” (Unit 5).
The book focuses on how the values of Open Organizations (transparency, inclusivity, adaptability, collaboration and community) can be used to create a culture of innovation in your organization, and it gives real-work case studies as examples of enacting these values. It is the fifth book in the series.
The PDF version of The Open Organization Workbook can be downloaded for free.
The introduction to Unit 4: Collaboration describes the differences between coordination, cooperation, and collaboration. The section introduction for Unit 5: Community discusses the synergistic ways in which community membership influences us, and how we influence it.
Thanks and happy reading !
