Home/Open Organizations

Open organizations are organizations without barriers to entry, where people can join and leave the organization in a fluid fashion with needing permission. These organizations typically take a networked form where people are free to couple or decouple; exchanging resources in a modular fashion. Examples, of open organizations, would include many web platforms such as Wikipedia and Uber, many social networks, cities and some co-working spaces. In open organizations, people, goods, and services are continuously flowing in and out, what makes this an organization is not the boundary condition but instead the network of interactions between members. The emphasis in managing open organizations is on attracting the members into the organization and creating the conditions that will result inĀ self-organization and the emergence of desirable outcomes.
