Organisational openness: Definition and explanation

Terms

Organisational openness is an across organisation philosophy which emphasises transparency in all areas and free unrestricted access to knowledge and information. It also incorporates and promotes positive collaboration and cooperative management and decision-making with an emphasis on learning as opposed to being right.  

 

The main thrust of an open organisation is free access to content and information. This means that the managers and leaders need to be aligned with the philosophy as organisational openness applies to all decisions and the reasons for those decisions.
