Radical openness was the hot topic at TED 2012 in Edinburgh, Scotland recently. TED is qualified to serve up this theme, as they built a global media powerhouse by giving away their content, brand, methods and formats.
TED speaker Don Tapscott spoke of four principles in a radically open world: transparency, collaboration, sharing and empowerment. All of these leading beyond networked information and knowledge, to networked intelligence, where some of the world’s greatest problems could be solved.
Has your company given radical openness a chance? Have you given it a chance yourself? Or is it just too scary?
