The Open Organization
Red Hat is the major developer of the open source software Linux and has its primary office in Raleigh, NC….2014 revenues were $1.8B.
The CEO of Red Hat has recently written a book….The Open Organization.
Two key points from the article (and book):
- There is a different and better way to run a business/organization….an open organization rather than a top-down decision-making structure.
- Great organizations attract and inspire the best people and engage them to make the right decisions. Open organizations create an environment where the best people want to be….and make right decisions for the success of the organization.
While Red Hat has made the open source software Linux a success….it also has created an effective business organization for the future.
