We are continually exploring open business models that use a new, agile, networked ways of working. Extrapolating forwards, we keep on coming back to the question, what might a truely Open Enterprise look like? Where does it start and where does it end? How does it function? And crucially, for the purposes of this post, what roles are required in such a business to embed openness across all functions?
As a starter for 10 we would like to introduce the following characters:
In each case, there may be one, or several, or possibly thousands of people in each roles. But basically we believe that the Open Enterprise touches upon every aspect of the business and so needs CXOpen’s across every function and at all levels.
So we’d be really interested to know what you think a CXOpen is or should be? Perhaps you know one, or even are one already. Either way, we’d love to hear from you as we are in the process of co-creating an Open Book with a view of launch/publish next year with associated activities and events. More on that shortly but do let us know if you are interested in participating or have a view on any of the above.
