Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams are brilliant thought leaders on how business, government, and society in the 21st Century can leverage technologies to achieve exciting new opportunities. Radical Openness is the latest in a series of books filled with real world examples to convey an insightful vision of the future. This quick read is broken into four parts:

1. Why smart organizations embrace transparency with customers, stakeholders, and society to foster trust and accelerate business progress.
2. Innovative and successful companies are dissolving corporate boundaries.
3. How companies who tightly guarded their IP transition to a shared IP model, managed like a mutual fund portfolio.
4. How the proliferation of global freedom and justice movements are shaking up the global balance of power.

They describe how digital technologies slash transition and collaboration costs allowing new ecosystems of companies and organizations to work together in new ways and tap a global pool of talent. Enabling users to participate in innovation improves company success rates and customer satisfaction. Focusing on dynamic platforms to provide opportunities for partners to contribute and collaboratively innovate. The advancement of IT in the Digital Age provides societies powerful insight into massive amounts of information. This access enables freedom, openness, integrity, and collaboration where everyone can participate in a sustainable global economy.

Radical Openness is a great read for those who want to develop strategies and leverage digital technology to effective lead an innovative enterprise.

Enjoyed reading this eBook very much. It's a quick read (took me 45 minutes). But in that brief time, the authors give us a refreshing view of the power of collaboration. With sweeping breadth, Tapscott and Williams offer example after example of how people are harnessing contemporary communications tools. From skunkworks projects to massive corporate initiatives to spontaneous eruptions of social change, they drive home the point that any form of problem-solving can be enhanced with Openess and Transparency.
On each page of this work, you get a better understanding of both the wonders and the 'watch-outs' of living in this Open world.

The title of the book is actually misleading - the required openness in the age of connectivity - social connectivity, that is - may be perceived by many as radical - but it isn't, it is simply smart. But yes, "smart openness" wouldn't have been quite as strong a title.

The book smartly opens doors to new understanding - helping to take companies et al from an industrial age thinking to seeing the great potential of today and tomorrow. Sharing information, data, metrics, patents, research has never been easier - and has never had more potential to bring crystal clear business value. The companies that smartly begin to share what it knows will find new innovative solutions with the wealth of brainpower outside its firewalls. That's the company of the future - the company who will surpass the one that clings to rigid protection of all its intellectual property.

Packed into a small volume, this is a very important book. It has the power to foster a major mindshift that will lead to more and smarter innovation, greater business opportunities and a far more social business culture across the globe that will benefit the many.

This book outlines a clear understanding of why collaboration and opening up IP is important for all organisations to address to be successful for their stakeholders, including most importantly their employees.

A book that must be read for its simplicity of message on openness and for its impact on thinking more about sharing and less about hoarding knowledge.

More a recognition of a trend than an explication of a trend ... the roots of it, however, implied in the title's 'radical' are left largely unexplored and I wanted some framework for understanding beyond the descriptions of what has happened. But as a source of immediate information about the trend and in terms of identifying the elements that constitute the change Williams is describing, it was great.
