[Under Development]

Collaboration, Open Solutions, and Innovation (COSI) are the key management strategies organizations need to incorporate into their corporate culture in order to compete and succeed in the 21st century. The adoption and application of these new management strategies is already evident within many companies in almost every industry.

Public and private sector organizations around the world are being revolutionized through the application of these three unique and powerful management strategies. When combined, these COSI strategies create a robust model for accelerating change, achieving significant operational efficiencies, and improving the quality of products and services provided by organizations in the U.S. and other countries.

Open management applies many of the philosophies and practices drawn from the world of free and open source software (FOSS), e.g.   freedom, collaboration, openness, sharing, innovation, liberty, transparency.

This COSI 'Open' Management portal provides links to a wide range of collaborative 'open' solutions for use by managers and their employees in the 21st Century, e.g. 'open' source software, 'open' access publications, 'open' data, 'open' communities, and much more.

The 'Open Way'

The 'Open Way' is more than just a software development model; it defines the characteristics of a culture.The open source way thrives on broad collaboration and shared effort.
  • The open source way is about possibility. Open source presents a new way to solve old problems. To share ideas and effort.
  • The open source way opens doors. Open source offers a new perspective. Open, not closed. Collaboration, not isolation.
  • The open source way multiplies: Knowledge. Effort. Inspiration. Creativity. Innovation. The impact is exponential.
