Open Business is an approach to enterprise that draws on themes such as Open Data, Networked-Organisations, Crowd-Funding and Collaboration. The approach places value on transparency, stakeholder inclusion, accountability and trust. Our interactive panel will be discussing the highs and lows of designing and delivering an open culture against a resistance of corporate normality. This is useful for business leaders who want to explore open business principles for their business.
