Three Keys to an Open Organization
Open Organization: What is it good for?
In today’s working culture being involved and apart of the company is very important to an employee. The satisfaction the employee gets from the feeling of making a different is huge. Without someone truly believing that their work makes a difference for the company the employee may feel undervalued. With open organization the employees can work and easily communicate with their superiors.
Everyone Changes lightbulbs in an open organization, by Pete Savage
Working directly with employees is very important to the company and the personal success of the employee. In open organization the manager is expected to be upfront with you when discussing outcomes. This helps lead to a specific outcome that the organization is looking for. The main take away is working directly with people rather than sitting back and waiting for someone to report to you.

· Bring your front-lines in
In order to create passion and formulate questions you can bring in everyone once a year to pick their brains on to see what they think could be done differently. By going from the top down you can really get all the knowledge you might have missed out on by not going down the chain. This gives the guys in the trenches a say and can create change from the foundation.
· Your culture will dictate who stays and who goes
By establishing a positive and open minded culture the company is given the chance to let some people shine when they might not have been able to if they weren’t given the option. By listening to what anyone has to say gives the company an added advantage. No knowledge should be going to waste.
How I learned the difference between a community and an audience, by Phil Branon
A normal chain of commands in an audience because they person at the top has all the say rather, in a community everyone has a say. This could be very important for a company’s success, just think, if the CEO gave a call to you personally just to talk about how your tasks are coming and whether he can give any incite personally. This would help with grasping the full concept of your job as an employee but also for the CEO to understand what is happening beneath him without directly asking the managers. As times are changing it is vital that you change along with them.
