The emerging era will need cultural approaches that enable connection, sharing, and open behaviours.

We‘ve developed a cultural approach for the emerging era that we call open culture. This approach is based on decades of experience creating new open concepts; through our work helping organisations implement open approaches; and learning what conditions helped them to achieve positive outcomes.

Our approach leverages three key foci that we use to: gain a rounded perspective of an organisation; catalyze the benefits that can be gained from open approaches and ermering tech; and to help navigate the change inherent in implementing new cultures or technologies.

Open Culture

A Cultural Approach To Working In The Emerging Era

In this course we will explore:

the common characteristics of organisations that value and use open approaches; how open characteristics can be operationalised and implemented, and how open approaches have benefited organisations, including private companies, cities, global communities, charities and NGOs.

We reference lessons from our own work helping traditional organisations implement open within their existing context, and those we’ve helped bridge towards hybrid or decentralised approaches, as well as our work creating decentralised approaches. We supplement this with characteristics of open organisations as explored by the Open Organization community and use case studies to contextualize both.

By the end of this course you will know:
